Audi R8

The Audi R8 has become the modern benchmark in style and performance for Supercars. Junior drivers love it and are always blown away by the power, performance and luxury that this amazing car offers. It is the ultimate ride.

Powered by a 4.2 litre FSI V8 the Audi R8 transfers its 414 brake horsepower via an R-tronic semi automatic gearbox and the famous Quattro all wheel drive system. With a history directly linked to Audi’s Le Mans car, it comes as no surprise that the R8 has fantastic performance figures, It rockets from nought to sixty in under four and a half seconds and has a top speed of 187 miles per hour, However, it’s when those figures are combined with the handling and poise that this car displays on the track that you come to realise how special this supercar is. No wonder Ironman chose the R8 as his preferred mode of transport.

The Experience

As soon as they arrive for their Junior Audi R8 Driving Experience, junior drivers will begin to feel like a professional racing driver. They’ll be taken to the briefing room for a safety and information presentation by a qualified ARDS instructor. As well as safety, this is an opportunity for the instructor to give advice and tips to junior drivers about how they make the most from being behind the wheel of this exquisite two-seater coupé.

Talking over, the instructor and junior driver then hit the circuit for some familiarisation laps. With the instructor behind the wheel this is a fabulous opportunity for junior drivers to see how the professionals handle the twists and turns.

Demonstration over its time for 11-16 year olds to put what they’ve learnt into practice. For six miles on the track, with an ARDS instructor by their side, junior drivers will get a glimpse into what has made this car among the most sought-after and why its won its accolades. The R8 may not have the Ferrari or Lamborghini badge but it is every bit a supercar, delivering the ultimate thrill.
