Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro: Race track video from Infineon Raceway

Very cool video here of the Audi R8 V10 running at Infineon Raceway. Check it out!

The combination of 525 horsepower and an 8700-rpm redline isn’t one that invites prudence, so we recently took Audi up on an offer to sample the new R8 5.2 at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma Valley, California. Audi runs its one- and two-day Sportscar Experience at this track, and the R8 V-10 is now one of the featured cars.

One-day R8 courses, which will plant participants behind the wheel of an R8 5.2 for about 3.5 to 4 hours of in-paddock training and on-track instruction, runs $1895. The two-day course gets you between 8 and 10 hours of drive time and costs $3495. Graduate from one of those two without terrifying your instructors too much, and you’ll be eligible for the $4295 advanced two-day program. If the R8-specific courses are out of your price range, Audi offers a pair of S-model classes that sample the S range, including S4, S5, S8, and TTS, starting at $695 for a half day or $1395 for a full day—which includes a short stint in the magical R8.
