We were surprised at how they just set us all loose behind the wheel of these cars. We weren't on some secluded track, away from other drivers and the elements. We were right on I-35 in Dallas, amidst traffic at times, and even as it started raining. They had put walkie-talkies in each car so the professional drivers could stay in contact with us and let us know where we'd be heading next. Other than that, Meezy was pretty much free to drive how he wanted! It was really cool. I'm sure it looked a little odd to other drivers and people on the street to see 8 Audi R8s driving next to each other! Here's some pics of the experience, and a couple videos for a little taste of what it was like to be a passenger.
Aren't we special?
It had our name on the dash

Baby Dutch made an appearance
What? Pregnant chicks don't make good car models?
On the highway alongside another R8
It was an R-tronic drive
All the fancy gadgets
Yep, it's a V10
Not your normal view on I-35
This was the group of us leaving the Hotel. The voice you hear is one of the professional drivers over the walkie-talkie:
And us getting on the highway. Man, I love the sound of that engine!
