Drive of the Week: In-Car Video R8 at PBIR


In-Car Video Audi R8 topping 145mph at PBIR 

We recently visited Palm Beach Intl Raceway on Feb. 10-11, 2017, not only was the sun shining, but we had some seriously talented drivers with us. Not to mention the record number of supercar owners who came out to the track that weekend to drive with us. We’re talking anything from classic Ferraris, up to brand new Acura NSXs and more. Speaking of, there was one guest we were excited to meet, and that was a fellow supercar owner named, Ramy.

We first spoke to Ramy on the forum, R8 Talk, which is where we learned that he owns an Audi R8 GT Spyder (Gen 1). Not bad!

After striking up a conversation online, he was pumped to find out we had replaced our Gen 1 R8 (one of our favorite cars we’ve ever owned) with its successor. As you can assume, Ramy’s a huge of a fan of his own R8, but that didn’t stop him from jumping in line to find out if an upgrade was in the forecast. So, let’s see how his drive went, shall we?

So, he might not be headed straight to the dealer just yet, but his run was solid! XX instructor John Raymond was on his toes to ensure the R8 driver stayed in good shape, and allowed him to explore the limits of the V10 powerhouse. Nice work all around, gents.

Do you think Ramy deserved DTW? Let us know in the comments below.
