Audi R8 and Rs4 test drive-

I don't know if this is a repost but I just received this invitation from Audi in my email- basically you get a half day of driving the R8 and Rs4 with a track instructer at Infineon raceway for $595. I'd do it if was cheaper, that R8 is sick:rocks:

i have actually signed up for the Audi driving experience, the Two Hour Introductory program which is free, scheduled on 9/14/07. It's going to be at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA.

Quote:
Drivers drive a variety of Audi vehicles including the TT, A4, and Q7 on a number of tracks designed to improve your fundamental driving skills. These tracks include braking, skid control, handling and accident avoidance. Once these fundamentals are established, drivers will lap the road course at the speedway. The most improved driver will get a ride in the R8 on the racetrack.
Improved understanding of vehicle handling
Improved braking and accident avoidance techniques
Learning where to look in an emergency situation
Controlling a skid
Understanding quattro and why it gives Audi an inherant handling advantage
Understanding vehicle capabilities and limits

I can't wait for this day to come.

Ben

My friend who lives in Chicago just got back from the event and can't stop talking about it. He said it was incredible. If you like Audis, you should do it.

R8 is great, but not worth the money
