AJAX, ON, – The Audi driving experience is a comprehensive driver training program designed to educate and excite driving enthusiasts in a premium, controlled environment. For over 20 years Audi has been developing and enhancing the Audi driving experience program around the world.

What to expect
Hosted at an exclusive location with a personalized touch from start to finish, expect premium hospitality, expert drive instructors and personalized customer care at the Audi driving experience.

Advanced training (half day)
The Advanced program is a half-day session (with two sessions being offered per day) that starts with a short opening session in-class covering key theoretical and practical elements for improving vehicle control. Drive activities and instruction on selected race tracks across Canada will show participants how to drive correctly at or near vehicle limits. Each session is 4.5 hours including acceleration, slalom and braking and technology drive segments. A thrilling hot lap in the passenger seat of a R8 is also offered to each participant.

Intensive training (full day) – New
New for this year the Intensive program is a full-day session, eight hours in length. This program includes all activities from the half-day program with additional lapping modules and autocross challenges in the afternoon. Lapping sessions extend the advanced driving instruction from the half-day program and allow participants to apply knowledge and skills on a full race track course in a lead-follow format. Autocross challenges add fun competition elements to the day while again extending the advanced driving skills and experience of participants. Hot laps in the passenger seat of a R8 are offered to each participant.
