Audi sportscar experience recently paired with San Francisco Magazine to help spotlight five Bay Area leaders who are “accelerating change” in their world. Five honorees and guests from their favored non-profits were given the chance to really put their passion, vision and commitment to test driving a host of ASCE’s Audi performance cars.
After a ground school on vehicles dynamics it was off to the Audi TTS autocross where they practiced what they were preached. Lots of screeching, revving and safety cone destruction ensued before it was time to put them all to the clock with a team vs team relay race.
Then it was time to move to the big track at Sonoma Raceway where helmets were strapped on and knuckles were clenched as everyone got the chance to drive the same track that NASCAR and Indycar race on following the Audi sportscar experience’s professional drive team. Everything wrapped up on a high with a special bonus. As spectators sipped on champagne and canapés, the instructors brought out the Audi R8 supercars to give everyone a real thrill at racing speeds to end out the day.
