Hi everyone i came across this link and was wondering if anyone would be interested in it?

During our one day, Audi Driving Experience you will get to know the most important theoretical and practical elements of safe, enjoyable driving. This event at Silverstone Circuit gives you valuable knowledge on how to evaluate risks and recognise dangers, plus teaching you how to react in emergency situations whilst on the road.

Our experienced instructors will train you in many facets of car control and safe driving. The techniques will include such things as, cornering, understeer, ABS braking, high speed lane changes/avoidance techniques and car balance. Finally, lapping of the demanding 'Stowe Circuit' will teach you the advantage of consistent balanced driving together with the effectiveness of something as simple as your driving position. All the activities are designed to replicate real world conditions and are conducted at open road speeds.

Attendance is restricted to 30 participants per day. You will be driving the more recent addition to our range, the Audi S5 with its 354bhp, V8 FSI® engine, the Audi RS4 quattro with its 4.2 litre V8 engine, plus our new Audi second-generation TT quattro. Participants team up in pairs to share each of the 15 cars, giving ample time to drive and observe on each discipline.

Audi UK reserves the right to change the cars at anytime without notice.

The day commences at 09:00 hours (arrive at 08:30 hours this will allow time for registration, drinks, breakfast roll & pastries). A short safety briefing is given by the instructors to enable you to understand the driving physics. A 45 minute lunch break is taken and your day will finish at approximately 16:00 hours.

The Audi Driving Experience is sure to open your eyes to both your cars and your own abilities and will help to prepare you for the unexpected.

After your day at Silverstone, you are sure to want to develop your skills further, so participation in the UK Audi Driving Experience opens the door for you to attend other Audi Driving Experiences around the world, from the incredible Nürburgring, Nordschleife circuit with its 170 plus corners to the fabulous ice driving in Finland.

Im interested in doing this, would have to be a saturday or sunday though. May 18/19th (Although its 3 of my friends birthday weekend which may mean i might be in bristol, depends what their plan is.), but i think the June 21st would be best for me (My birthday weekend). The rest are too early for me really.

Not to steal your thunder Jen, but I was checking out the knockhill website and if 10 owners got together we could drive for a couple of hours there with our cars for £150. Would that interest any of the scottish owners? Or anyone else if your up for travelling here.

I'd rather do silverstone than knockhill, because silverstone supply the cars, so you're covered if you mess anything up (aren't you?).

Plus, I think i'd rather drive the RS4 :D
