Audi bought their long running V8 model into the present day in 2015 with production of their R8 V10 Plus model. First premiered at the Geneva Motor Show that same year, it shares something in common with another giant of the supercar world - the Lamborghini Huracan - in that both operate on the MSS (Modular Sports System) platform.
Being as this was the second incarnation of the R8, you may be forgiven for thinking that Audi might suffer from ‘Difficult Second Album Syndrome’ with the R8 V10 Plus, especially when the first generation was in production for nearly 10 years. But that’s thankfully not the case, as you’ll discover when you take to the wheel of one.
It still retains the same 5.2 litre V10 engine that its predecessor had, and packs a phenomenal 550 bhp. And just wait until you see the speed stats: a thundering top speed of 204 mph, and the capability to zoom from 0 - 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, making it even faster than what came before.
Trackdays is dedicated to providing driving experiences in as many different places and circuits as possible throughout the United Kingdom. From Cornwall in the south to Scotland in the north, we offer Audi experiences for you to sample all across the nation.
Whether you want to jump behind the wheel and put the pedal to the metal on a mile-long straight or navigate your way through tight bends to get a true sense of how this incredible supercar handles, we've got you covered.
Many of our locations, in addition to our nationwide network, provide a range of extra driving experiences in different supercars. If driving an Audi doesn't appeal to you, there are plenty of alternative supercars to consider, like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Nissan, Aston Martin, and many more.
You have the option to combine these experiences with up to six more supercars of your choosing!
Booking an Audi Experience
At Trackdays, we've spent a lot of time fine-tuning our booking procedure. If you know when you'll be available, you may book yourself into a live date, or if you're purchasing for someone else, you can buy one of our open dated vouchers!
If you're buying an open Audi package gift certificate, double-check the validity time, since certain Audi coupons and special offers may have a shorter or longer validity period, which will be clearly stated on the gift certificates.
Please bear in mind that scheduling an Audi Experience for a certain date represents a reservation request, and the day and time you choose are subject to availability. Bookings are usually verified within 48 hours, however you should not make any arrangements until you get a final confirmation email.
Check the driver meets all of the safety requirements - age; weight; height; licence type. Although this is not always the case, we will usually specify in the package name if an experience is just for younger drivers. If the driver does not meet the requirements on the day of the Audi Experience, they will most likely be unable to drive and will be given a passenger ride instead.
The R8 V10 Plus has also been made available in Spyder convertible and RWS (Rear Wheel Series) models in the years since its launch. The Spyder came first in 2016, after being launched at the New York International Auto Show that same year, with the RWS following in 2017 with a showcase at the International Motor Show in Germany.
Most recently, in 2018, Audi also launched a performance car model, called the Audi R8 Spyder V10 Performance Quattro, with a much more sharper, angular design that improved its aerodynamic performance. This model went on sale in 2019.
All experiences are subject to availability. The most recent information on dates when an event may be available can be checked by looking at the calendars on the website, or when you have activated and logged in with your voucher. Please note not all spaces are shown online so if you cannot see spaces for your event please call or email for dates. We will do our best to secure your preferred choice of event, venue and date, but to avoid disappointment book as early as possible, especially for peak times such as weekends and the summer months which book up very quickly. Do not purchase an experience for yourself or as a gift that has a choice of venues if you or the person it is for are only able to travel to one of the choices. Once you are booked, you are bound by the terms and conditions of the event host of which a copy can be made available upon request. In most circumstances, a cancellation cannot be made once a date has been booked.
When booking by phone or online you should not make arrangements in connection with an Event until you have received your final booking confirmation stating your date and time (this does not include the automatic purchase email you receive that confirms what you have just ordered). Your final confirmation will usually arrive within 48 hours of making the purchase. For voucher redemption see 'voucher conditions' below. Where specific elements of an Event such as vehicles or equipment are not available due to mechanical breakdown, we reserve the right to make reasonable substitutions on the day. If this is not possible we reserve the right to cancel the experience at short notice.
Voucher holders must make a prior booking and receive confirmation in order that an open voucher can be redeemed. We recommend that when you have chosen your experience you redeem your voucher at least 21 days in advance of taking your selected experience. We do not guarantee availability on all events, even if the date is showing, so if a chosen event is full or you cannot find a suitable date during the validity period of your voucher then the credit can be used towards an alternative event. Do not arrive at a venue expecting to be able to use your voucher without making a prior booking and receiving a booking confirmation. Trackdays.co.uk will not be held liable for any costs incurred in such circumstances.
Unless stated otherwise, vouchers are valid for one person only. Where necessary a top-up payment can be made to increase the value of a voucher to book a higher priced event. Note that during the out of season months the price of experience may change. If the price of the event is lower than the value of the voucher the remaining credit will be held for use until the vouchers expiry date. We recommend booking as early as possible as you must have undertaken your experience before the expiry date printed on the front of your Voucher. All vouchers will be valid for use up to the expiry date displayed, but after this date, vouchers will automatically expire and cannot be reinstated under any circumstances. Trackdays.co.uk staff are not responsible for reminding or informing customers when a voucher is due to expire. A voucher holder may book a date which is outside of the expiration date displayed on the voucher but must extend the expiry of their voucher for an administration fee. This must be processed before the original expiry date. Voucher credit cannot be used for extension fees or to pay for booking protection.
