Audi driving experience is popular around the world. Four importers offer their own programmes and place their trust in the personnel, expertise and cars from Ingolstadt.
Silverstone is home to the Audi driving experience in the United Kingdom. The tradition-steeped circuit, 130 kilometres north-west of London, provides the ideal setting for a challenging programme. The Audi quattro experience teaches driving skills in the Audi Q3 and SQ5. Braking and stable handling with the quattro all-wheel drive, the skilful use of the ABS system – you will be able to practise all these skills at Silverstone. Anyone looking to master a challenging off-road course is equally welcome. The Audi Q7 guarantees breathtaking tilts, uphill and downhill gradients. The Audi Sport experience allows you to practice fast driving at the limit. The Audi RS 3 Sportback, RS 6 Avant and R8 V10 plus models are just perfect for the Stowe Circuit in Silverstone with its many turns.
The Dubai Autodrome is home to the Audi driving experience in the Middle East. The facility with FIA grade 1 certification provides six different circuit layouts, with the possibility of using up to three variants in parallel. Audi offers its customers five programmes, ranging from the Advanced safety driving experience, the Audi sportscar experience, half-day and full-day courses with the R8 as well as teambuilding seminars, through to the Audi Chauffeur driving experience. The Audi driving experience stages events at the Dubai Autodrome around 40 times a year, with some 750 participants attending under the symbol of the four rings every year. And that’s not taking into account the product presentations. The Audi driving experience has been operating in Dubai since 2007. Instructor James Burnett and his team capitalise on the experience and the training offered by colleagues from the Audi driving experience in Germany. The team in Dubai regularly refreshes its knowledge in specialist courses so they can teach customers new driving skills with optimum results.

The following models are used: A1, A4, A6, S3, TTS, RS 5, and the Q3 and Q7 SUV models. To get an idea of just how attractive the programmes are, you just need to take a look at the latest anniversary – the Audi driving experience is celebrating its tenth birthday in Buenos Aires in 2016.
