The Junior Audi R8 driving experience was created with kids in mind. It’s perfect for young drivers who have always wanted to drive their dream car, but aren’t yet old enough to hold a license.
One of the most popular supercars amongst junior drivers, the Audi R8 has everything a supercar needs. Created from renowned German engineering, it has a thundering sound, staggering speed and looks that stack up against the likes of any Ferrari or Lamborghini. All of this has helped it to become a firm favourite amongst youngsters.
If Mum and Dad are worried about their child’s safety, rest assured this is a prime consideration at all times, as all juniors are required to wear a safety helmet and will also have a fully qualified driving instructor beside them at all times. Most junior Audi R8 driving day packages will see the participant get approximately 10 - 15 minutes' driving time, but in the case of some of our packages, their time behind the wheel can be upgraded for a set fee.
After the driving, some of our packages offer the opportunity of a high-speed passenger ride in a high-performance car to really put the cherry on the top of an unforgettable day. If the standard R8 isn't enough of a mean machine, why not let the kids try their hand at its bigger brother? The new and improved Audi R8 V10 and R8 V10 Plus are just two of the cars you can choose to drive with our Junior Platinum driving experiences.
Youngsters can now experience the thrill of driving the Audi R8 around various locations across the UK with TrackDays, meaning that no matter which package you opt for, there’s a venue nearer to you than you might think.
These include venues such as Perranporth Circuit in Cornwall, Seighford Driving Centre in Staffordshire, St Andrews Circuit in Scotland, and Dunsfold Park - the home of the Top Gear test track - in Surrey.
You can use our Location tools, situated on the top left of this page, to help you find and select your Junior Audi driving day package at a venue that’s in the closest proximity to you and your young petrolhead!
Whether it’s a birthday or Christmas surprise, or a treat to celebrate the end of exams/start of summer holidays, our Junior Audi experiences make the perfect gift idea for young motorists. And our open gift vouchers not only have additional gift wrap options available, but offer great flexibility to be redeemed and used at a time or date to suit your needs.
But one thing we do pride ourselves on here at TrackDays is having the most up to date availability around on all our packages, as we’re in regular communication with our suppliers at all our venues. So if there’s a forthcoming available date you’re interested in, you can book directly onto this as well from our Events Calendars.
Essential Booking Information for Junior Audi Experiences
If you buy an open gift voucher for a Junior Audi package, the standard validity period to use the voucher is 10 months. However, please make sure you check this first, as some Junior Audi vouchers and special offers may have a shorter or longer validity.
If you are booking directly onto a date for a driving experience, please note that you are making a booking request, and the date and time that you choose will still be subject to availability.
We usually confirm bookings within 48 hours, but we ask that you do not make any arrangements in conjunction with your booking request until you have received your final confirmation email. The receipt we send you after making a booking request is not your confirmation.
Other important things to consider when purchasing driving experiences for Junior Audi is that the young driver meets all requirements in terms of age, weight and height. These requirements are unique to each driving experience, so please ensure you have read the important information thoroughly.
If you place a booking for a driving experience, and the driver doesn’t meet the requirements on the day, then it is unlikely they will be able to drive the vehicle, in which case they will be offered a passenger ride.

Vehicles and Venues
Trackdays.co.uk helps customers find a range of motorsports facilities, automobiles, and locations. A replacement service will be supplied in the event of failure, poor weather, or construction. Changing locations, days, vehicles, and schedules may be essential. For around £20-£25 per driver, a damage waiver may be purchased on the day.
All session durations are estimated. You may cancel your booking, but your ticket is non-refundable after your itinerary has been accepted.
In order to safeguard the health and safety of drivers and employees, most driving experiences have physical restrictions. To meet the basic height and weight requirements, you have to be between 4'11" and 6'6" tall and weigh less than 18 stone. Participants must be at least 16 years of age. Please double-check these requirements as this may vary depending on the vehicle and the level of competency necessary. Any driver who is engaged in a driving activity or who is taking part in a vehicle track day must always have their complete driver's licence with them. The use of a motorbike during bike track days requires an unrestricted motorcycle licence. In order to be eligible to participate, you must possess the required licence. Every vehicle that participates in a vehicle track day goes through a static and/or drive-by noise test, regardless of make or model. We present as much static noise information as possible on our schedule, whenever feasible. Participation in the trackday is contingent on passing all drive-by and static noise tests on the day of the test. If the vehicle fails the tests, it will not be permitted to participate on the circuit and will not be refunded. For public track days, everyone must wear a helmet. In order to participate in a race, you must wear two-piece zip-together or whole leather protective gear. Before you are authorised to ride on the track, any further restrictions and limits will be made clear to you. It is at the discretion of the organiser whether or not you are granted a refund if you are asked to leave the track due to misbehaviour. People who participate in the venues we represent are expected to understand that our establishments have strict safety guidelines.
Inclement weather may affect your event. Unfortunately, it is often not possible to postpone an event well in advance. Driving excursions and track days may have to be postponed or rescheduled because of bad weather. Refunds will be provided only if it is possible - and the event cannot be rescheduled.
We try to keep our event calendar updated on our website as frequently as possible. In the case you cannot find the event or date you're seeking, please use the contact form. We will do all in our power to assist you. Reserve your event as early as possible. In the case that you do not follow all of the event host's conditions and limitations, your reservation will be lost. You can't make changes to your booking after you've made it.
The locations will be able to provide a suitable substitution on the day if any vehicles or equipment are unavailable due to mechanical failure.
Voucher Terms and Conditions
Unless otherwise noted, the vouchers are only good for one individual. If a voucher's value has to be raised, a top-up payment may be made. It's important to bear in mind that the price of an activity will fluctuate according to the season. Remaining voucher credit will be preserved until the voucher expires. We urge that you organise your event as soon as possible as your voucher must be used by the date shown. Every coupon is valid as long as the indicated expiration date is still current, after which the coupon will expire and cannot be renewed.
We use Royal Mail 48® for our gift shipments, which takes three to five working days to arrive. Alternatively, we use DPD for faster deliveries. Head through to the website's news section located at the bottom of the page to see the final Christmas delivery dates.
Damage waivers are offered on the day of the event. We make it plain to our consumers that they are not compelled to purchase anything in order to participate in the event. Accident damage may be expensive, which is why it is advised that clients consider damage waivers when hiring performance cars.
VAT is included in every Trackdays.co.uk price unless otherwise specified. TrackDays reserves the right to amend pricing at any point. We have the right to decline a booking if we cannot fulfil it because of a pricing error on the website.

Calls to the Trackdays.co.uk booking line are recorded for staff training reasons; however, call recording is deactivated if sensitive information is provided over the phone.

Trackdays.co.uk event participants will be covered by our suppliers' Public Liability Insurance. Participants are also recommended to have their own insurance cover.
For most of our track days we do not allow vehicles that are based on an open-wheel racing chassis.
