Audi Launches Circuit of the Americas Driving Experience

Driving an Audi R8 on the streets is a ton of fun, but driving one on a racetrack is a dream come true. Now you can drive an all-new Audi Sport model and brush up on your performance driving skills at the same time.

Audi offers four programs for owners and fans on the same circuit where the R8 GT3 race car competes — Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas.

The program is open year-round to drivers of all experience levels. You just need to be at least 18, between 5'0" to 6'6" in height, and weigh no more than 260 pounds.

Audi's courses include hands-on coaching from professional instructors, dynamic car control exercises, proper cornering techniques, and high-speed lead and follow exercises on the track.

The driving experience includes the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the Audi Q7, RS 3, TT RS, and R8 V10 plus — you just have to sign a waiver and be willing to part with a small stack of cash.

There are half day, one day, and two day experiences to choose from and each program includes a classroom session followed by a hands-on interactive experience.

Audi says participants of the driving experience will also enjoy dedicated suites and garages along with catered meals and snacks. FYI: You are on your own for airfare to Austin and dinner is not included.

Prices start at $595 for a half day Audi Sport Dynamic Experience with no track time (autocross lots for you) and up to $4,995 for a two day Audi Sport R8 Pro Track Experience. Sign us up!

Reservations are now open, and for more information, check out the circuit site here.

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could just go to a local dealership to buy a JDM hero car? Well, if you live in or around the Naples area in south Florida, that is now a reality. Craft Sports, the Nissan Skyline and GT-R specialty store and dealer that started in Gunma, Japan, recently opened

Run down the entire list of modifications made to San Diego native Alex Lawn’s Pandem widebody 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 and it won’t take you very long to get to the end.

Superstreet: If there’s one thing you guys hate with all of your soul, it’s the idea of OEM vehicle manufacturers teaming up with one another on new vehicle offerings, the way that GM and Honda/Acura have agreed upon. We’ve seen it with the Subaru and Toyota “86” experiment that was lit ablaze when first announced

Unlike most builds that are a product of some grand scheme of daydreaming and sometimes documenting plans for picking up a specific car and applying a headful of parts and changes to it, this turbocharged 1995 Mazda Miata is the exact opposite. Its owners and builders, brothers Alex and David Wong, had no intentions of

One of the most unexpected things to emerge from an unusual 2020 was just how hot the Japanese tuner car collector market is.
