Audi – Become a Race Driver

May 10

Got the itch to test your mettle against some of the world’s best drivers on the legendary Nurburgring, but don’t have a race team or a billionaire’s budget? You can race an Audi R8 LMS in real competition for a fraction of the price.

That fraction is still likely measured in multiples of the average American’s yearly income, but it’s a bargain compared to running a full-on privateer team, and the results are arguably even better. Audi’s R8 LMS “race experience” program allows customers to get behind the wheel of a Team Joest-prepared and backed race car and hit the track in pro competition on the Nurburgring and elsewhere.

“As far as I know, Audi is the first automobile manufacturer in the world to offer such a program,” says Audi’s head of Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich. “Our colleagues from the Audi driving experience and Reinhold Joest’s squad with whom we’ve been successfully working together since twelve years will provide our customers with an exclusive and unforgettable motorsport experience. And the Audi R8 LMS, which, according to our “factory” drivers, is a very forgiving GT3 car is perfectly suited for this project which we fully support on the part of Audi Sport.”

“Forgiving” for a professional race car driver may not be quite the same “forgiving” a normal person expects, but Audi’s plan to move forward with the race experience for the R8 LMS is already in motion, and it’s sure to be a rewarding and enlightening experience for anyone that can afford it. The prep, tips and information gleaned from the Le Mans-winning Team Joest alone is likely worth the price of entry; the racing is a bonus.

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
