The Audi R8 V10 may not immediately seem to be different from it’s V8 counterpart, but first impressions can be deceiving. First showcased at the Detroit Motor Show in 2009, it went into production that same year, turbo boosting an already mighty supercar to another level altogether.
And the main upgrade that gives this model its name is of course the 5.2 litre V10 FSI engine, packing a superb 518 bhp - that’s 105 bhp more than the V8. It also offers an aerodynamic driving experience, offering precise handling for the driver with its rear wheel drive chassis that offers excellent grip of the road.
Speaking of which, we bet you’ll be wondering what speeds this bad boy is capable of achieving on the track? Some jaw dropping stats, that’s for sure: it cruises from 0 - 60 mph in a swift 3.8 seconds, and a top speed of 196 mph is possible in the R8 V10, a figure that leaves many of its contemporaries in the shade.
Trackdays is committed to delivering driving experiences in as many diverse locations and circuits throughout the United Kingdom as possible. We have Audi experiences all across the country for you to try, from Cornwall in the south to Scotland in the north.
We've got you covered, whether you want to climb behind the wheel and push the pedal to the metal on a mile-long straight or manoeuvre your way around tight curves to get a real feel of how this amazing supercar behaves.
In addition to our national network, many of our sites offer a variety of additional driving experiences in various supercars. If driving an Audi doesn't pique your interest, there are plenty of other supercars to choose from, like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Nissan, Aston Martin, and many more!
You may mix these experiences with up to six additional supercars of your choice!
Booking an Audi Experience
We've spent a lot of time at Trackdays fine-tuning our booking process. You may book yourself into a live date if you know when you'll be available, or you can purchase one of our open dated vouchers if you're buying for someone else!
If you're purchasing an open Audi package gift certificate, double-check the validity term, since certain Audi coupons and special offers may have a shorter or longer validity period, which will be clearly indicated on the gift certificates.
Please keep in mind that booking an Audi Experience on a certain date constitutes a reservation request, and the day and time you choose are still subject to availability. Bookings are generally confirmed within 48 hours, however you should wait until you get a final confirmation email before making any plans.
Verify that the driver is of legal age, weight, height, and has a valid driver's licence. Every event will have its own set of specifications. Although this is not always the case, we will generally indicate if an experience is just for younger drivers in the package name. If the driver does not fulfil the criteria on the day of the Audi Experience, they will very likely not be able to drive and will instead be offered a passenger ride.
The R8 V10 was the immediate toast of the motoring press after it first rolled off the production line in 2009. AutoCar were particularly impressed by its V10 engine upgrade, stating that this model ‘shows that too much of a good thing can be wonderful’.
Car Magazine were equally full of praise, giving it its top 5 star rating in their review, noting that it was ‘perfect … packed full of torque, flexibility and refinement for daily driving coupled with a race-car soundtrack for when you’re in hooligan mode’.
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.
