If your local Audi dealer calls the cops every time you ask for a test drive of an RS4, we suggest you either dress nicer next time or, if that's not possible, head to one of four cities hosting the Audi Driving Experience.

New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco are the four sites for Audi's traveling test drive, where participants can have the chance to drive their TT, A4 and Q7 all for free. You'll be able to put them through control, braking and accident avoidance maneuvers. If you can show you know how to handle their cars, Audi will even let you take one out for a lap around the racetrack.

The most improved drivers at each venue wins a ride in Audi's much-vaunted R8 supercar. Those winners will instantly be upgraded from most-improved to most-envied.

That's all included in the Audi Driving Experience two-hour introductory program, but for $600 Audi offers the half-day enthusiast program. That gets you professional driving instruction and track time in all the aforementioned cars, as well as the RS4 and R8.

There are two dates in each city, but with a chance to either ride in or drive an R8, we would expect them to fill up quick.

      What's awesome is that the New York events are at Pocono Raceway, in Long Pond, PA, a short 100 mile drive from Manhattan. I won't be going.

      Nothing for Canadians?

      Hmmm, Skip Barber is $595 and Total Program Time: 3 hours ... doesn't seem like the Audi one is that much of a ripoff.

      dangit....they of course pick the two dates in August and October that I KNOW I will be out of town....

      Nice, I'm signed up for Oct. 27 in Chicago (well, Joliet, but who's counting?). I'm not as interested in the R8 as I am the TT (since that's a car I'd be able to afford in the near future) ... should be fun.

      If I could make it to one of these event's
      I'd make sure my first run was so horrible they would probably figure out i'm acting it

      hey,
      it'd be worth getting honors for most improved and getting a chance at that R8, though it sounds as if you'll be in the passanger seat not driving, which defeats the purpose of the whole thing.

      Signed up. And within minutes got spam from some dealership. (i said 'no' to have a dealer contact me). Definitely use a throw-away email address for this one.
