me and on the standard delivered pirelli p zero road tyres. (which are better than say Bob Jane Allrounders but are no R Comp). I'm no pro but I wouldn't say I'm a mug either and I have done plently of laps around the place.

Christian Merchison apparently did a high 1.48 when they first got there on the new rubber however - it's impressive how good these production cars are now.

that's an awesome laptime then...both by you and the car.

of course, that's only compared to me...and my driving sucks!

I love my car. Buy your own

We timed the RS4 (driven by Christian) at a 1.55.2 - so it shows how much faster the R8.

Good toy.

I spent yesterday belting R8's around Phillip Island. They really are an impressive car.

1.50.0 for a stock car around PI is very very good as well. I really do rate these cars. I've actually always said in the supercar club fleet whilst the R8 might not be my favorite car it is the one I'd most like to own.

Did you do that via an Audi driving training day? Can anyone pay and do it??

No unfortunately it's an invitation only thing. The good news is for those invited is it is free to attend. :)

Mind you we did it in style and hired a helicopter to take us down and back which cost a bit but you may as well make the most of these opportunities in life when they are presented.
