Get behind the wheel of the stunning Audi R8 in Hertfordshire and experience its impressive capabilities first-hand. With a 4.2 litre V8 engine pushing out over 420 bhp, the Audi comes with Quattro four wheel drive that gives it razor sharp handling guaranteed to make you smile. Kick off with an introductory briefing from a professional instructor, covering safety, track etiquette and performance track driving. Next, hop into the passenger seat of a track prepared sports car (Evo X, Impreza STi or BMW M3) for three demo laps, a thrilling way to get familiar with the race track, concluding with one high-speed lap! Follow this by driving the mighty Audi R8 for 10 incredible laps. Just remember to give the keys back at the end.
