We really like this Experience located in Cranleigh, Surrey.
The gorgeous Aston Martin is a beautifully-crafted modern classic with awesome power, phenomenal acceleration and superb handling and TV’s famous test track, Dunsfold Park, is just the place to give it a spin. With the R8, Audi’s leading designers have pushed the boundaries of racing technology, futuristic construction and luxury refinement to deliver a car capable of 187 mph. Begin with a safety briefing and intro to driving techniques from a seasoned professional. Next, take the wheel yourself of either the Aston Martin V8 Vantage or DB9 for four laps. Then step into the Audi R8 for a further four laps. At the end, driving is assessed and you walk away with a certificate as a memento.
