What happens when you combine some of the world’s best cars with one of the world’s best tracks? Usually, a professional race. But now the everyman is going to have his turn to shine because Audi has teamed up with Circuit of the Americas to give us normal folk some much-desired time on the tarmac.
Called the Audi Driving Experience, the luxury sports car brand is offering anyone who has the time and money the chance to come down to Austin’s premier race track and learn to drive like a professional. There are four available packages, which range from a 1/2-day beginner basics to a 2-day pro-level run of the course (both taught by 20+ year race veterans), that will give you the chance to put the pedal to the metal on the same turns and straightaways as champions. And the vehicles are also a treat, including Audi’s RS3, TT RS, Q7, and – of course – a R8 V10 Plus. This truly once-in-a-lifetime experience starts at $595.
