An enjoyable day. The facility is unique. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We had a nice lunch. I have been to Exotics Racing so I was glad that this was a different kind of experience. The track is much more challenging and we had more time to become familiar with each car. Following an instructor on all the track sessions... More

Did the Audi Challenge -- a 3 hour event where you get to do several laps on the racetrack at high speed with a decent car. Fantastic! Great instructors!

If you want to receive instruction from the best, and experience the thrill of driving a race ready Audi, you need to sign up for this. Great instructors and great cars.

The instructors are the best, the cars are awesome and the time on the truck was unbelievable. If you want a special day of learning to drive a supercar on a really challenging track like Sonoma with great people then this is an experience not to be missed. I will be back for R8 Advanced.
