Overview

Which German car is faster than a Lamborghini Gallardo and an Aston Martin DB9? It's not a Porsche, it's the Audi R8! Winner of Autocar's “Best Handling Car” and “Fastest Car in the World” awards the R8 is a true supercar. Its flowing lines make it an object of beauty, its 200mph top speed makes it an object of lust, and its balanced weight distribution makes it an object of driving perfection. The R8 is a real drivers' car, the ideal car for pushing the limits on the track. This experience will open your eyes to just how special this supercar is. You'll receive an introduction and safety briefing from one of the highly trained instructors before being taken out for some familiarisation laps of the circuit (most locations) where the instructor will give you hints and tips on racing lines and driving technique. Then it's the main event, you will get to drive one of these German meistercars around the course for a whole 6 miles. With the landscape whipping by you'll really be able to feel the power this stunning car can lay down. Truly a driving experience you'll never forget.

  • Introduction and safety briefing with a fully trained instructor
  • All safety and protective equipment

I really enjoyed my driving experience however the track as very crowded with super cars getting priority. I missed out on putting my foot down as a car in front was driving slowly and we were unable to pass. Was my day out less important than theirs? Instructor was excellent. More staff required as never got to see my photos as the queue wAs too long.....they missed a sale there!

enjoyable, but
22 September 2015
It was an enjoyable experience, but all over too soon. Before you had time to understand just what the car was capable of, your time was up. It would be much better if you could have longer in the car. All cars that you are unfamiliar with take time to get used to and no allowance and or time is allowed for that. Still the short time that were actually driving (10 mins) was very enjoyable.

Not long enough
20 November 2014
Turned up and registered. Was told I needed to pay a £25 insurance disclaimer to cover me for the first £5000 of damage uf i should crash the car. My argument was that if I have a trained instructor at the side of me then how could I possibly crash a £100,000 Quattro driven supercar. Only got 3 laps when I was told at the time of booking that I would get 6 laps of driving. The car was semi automatic with paddle shift gears and I had to drive it in auto mode because I wasn't allowed to drive in semi auto mode . Then at the end I was offered a picture of my experience for £25. Or 10 images on a disc for £35. Nice car to drive but 6th gear experience are a total rip off.

So close to being a great day

Staff and instructors fantastic, cars what you hoped they would be Just the track let this down. I knew it was on an air field and expected The track to be compromised, but corners where to tight so driving was just squirting the go pedal down the two straights and braking hard for the corner.

Awesome!

PRESTWOLD HALL We had an amazing day. As Supercar enthusiasts, we were just in awe of the vast selection of cars we could drive. Information was easy to understand and on-hand staff were helpful in making sure you were where you should be ;) Instructors were so polite and friendly, and made you feel comfortable enough to really "put your foot down!" and see what the car could do. Can't wait to go again

Audi R8 Driving Experience: Before finalising the booking and going on the day I'd read numerous reviews, a good number of which were negative for one reason or another - so I just really hoped that the friends who bought the gift hadn't wasted their money! Final booking over the phone was straightforward enough, though timing/availability at the venue you want might be tight, (in my case, maybe as the company who ran my event don't do full weeks at all their venues, they move the supercars around their venues over the week, like a circus) so book WELL in advance to get your preferences. Disappointingly/cheekily, if I wanted a 'peak' middle-of-the-day time slot, they wanted another tenner for the privilege… so I opted for 9:30am, which was before their peak! Additional insurance to cover the 'excess' part of the supercar insurance is also available to buy when booking, or on the day, at a cost of £20 - purchasing is a personal decision for the individual, however, I opted to leave that decision until I'd witnessed the venue and risk, on arrival at the venue. It was a dry day, it was professionally organised, with instructors deliberately spacing cars around the open circuit, I'm a competent driver and so decided I could easily save the £20... in my case the right decision, but make your own mind up… in the wet, it might have been a different view. At a venue near Stafford, I was made very welcome on the day by all the friendly staff to hand, who clearly wanted everyone to have a good, safe, time. A nice little cafe was available on site. The R8 is a proper 4-wheel-drive supercar and my friendly, chatty instructor for the session was keen for me to enjoy the experience, coaching and urging me to be as fast and accurate around the circuit as I could. Yes, you will see complaints online that it's not a 'real' race track and true enough, it was a stretch of tarmac like a runway with a circuit made of bollards, but hey, Top Gear essentially have that every week and no one complains - and apart from another car on track, there's little chance of going off and hitting something, so you can be a bit braver. Make no mistake, this is NOT a track day that lasts for a few hours; it is as it describes 'an experience', which seems to be over in the blink of an eye - just because you're having fun and don't want it to end! Following the main drive however, I then had a couple of very hot laps as a passenger in a little Lotus Elise (more smiles!) and after a coffee break, took up (my absent guest's) 4x4 experience (passenger) on a really rough muddy track. Again, friendly staff at that sub-venue (with a free mini bus shuttle to and from the main event) made for a fun end to my day. It was also possible to have extra experiences whist there, for additional modest amounts, if you wanted. About 2.5 hours end-to-end and very enjoyable! Many thanks to all the folks who bought me the gift. Note, I had a decent dry day. If it was a poorer day, there was no real shelter at the venue and it would be very exposed, so you could very wet/cold, so go prepared! Note also that the 'additional experiences' in the original package vary with venue - so check what you fancy before confirming your booking.
