Just finished the weekend tracking my R8 at Miller Motorsport Raceway in Utah with the Audi Club. It was a great event at a complete world class racetrack facility. We had 4 R8's, a few Porsches, Derek Bell's championship S4, and a variety of TT's, R4's and 6's. All of the instructors came away completely swearing allegiance to the R8. Even one instructor, who actually races for Porsche on the ALMS circuit.

I thought I had driven the R8 hard before on open winding mountain roads. I have a Porsche as well, and always thought that the R8 could never equal the Porsche's aggressive feel. It seemed that the R8 was too refined and sophisticated to give the driver that raw animal like feel. But on the track I finally felt the real personality of the R8. It does not really come into its honest element until it is let loose on a track. On the track it is a raw and powerful beast that will take all to their limits.I love this car!
