2008 Audi R8 on tour around Canada


Audi has something good going on with the R8 supercar and they know it. The problem is, there isn’t enough of them to go around. In order to make sure as many enthusiasts as possible get to lay eyes on the new machine, Audi is sending 15 journalists on a cross Canada jaunt from Cape Spear, all the way to the west, finishing up in Victoria, BC.

Friend of The Garage, Russ Bond from Painkillerz is lucky enough to be along for the section from Barrie, Ontario to Thunder Bay, Ontario. In fact, Russ is having a month filled with R8 goodness, having visited the press launch for the car last week and will spend next week with the press car. While Russ is on the road with the Audi R8 Trans-Canada Performance Tour, he’ll be updating Painkillerz readers with daily photos and stories.

    The R8 Performance Tour is a great idea for Audi to promote the new Supercar….can’t wait for my two days in heaven….even if it snows – which is possible – the cat like grip of the Quattro will make it like a Sunday drive…RB
