- Driver safety training at the circuit of Jarama
- Partnership between Audi and Madrid dates back to 2003
Shortly before the crucial final spurt in the Spanish Football Championship the stars from Real Madrid enjoyed a special type of diversion from their daily practice routines: Even before the launch of the new Audi models on the Spanish market, the footballers had a close personal encounter with the new Audi A5, the S5 as well as the Audi R8 and the opportunity to perfect their driving skills for greater sporting pleasure and safety during a driving safety training session on the circuit of Jarama.
Highlight for the team of David Beckham, Raúl and company was the presentation of the new R8 sports car that was on the agenda after the fast laps in the new Audi TT and the A5 Coupé as well as practice units on the handling course. The training session also presented a good opportunity for the players to get to know fascinating Audi technologies like the permanent quattro four-wheel drive or the FSI engine.
Since 2003 AUDI AG has been the vehicle partner of record Champions League winner Real Madrid, who has a free choice from Audis model range. In return, the manufacturer from Ingolstadt presents itself in the legendary Estadio Santiago Bernabéu as well as enjoying other advertising rights related to the 29-time Spanish Champion. Vorsprung durch Technik also accompanies other European premier-league clubs on a daily basis: Clubs like FC Bayern München or FC Barcelona are on the ball with Audi as well.
