We’ll be honest, we’ve been lucky over the years to drive some pretty insane cars. From the latest RS-models to prototype test mules and even concept cars, Audi has been most generous to us in allowing us to get behind the wheel of some ridiculous cars. Then again, we think all of this might pail in comparison when it comes to Jason Harper who recently got to do some laps at Misano in the 2014 spec Le Mans winning Audi R18 e-tron quattro #2.
