The Audi R8 1:1 – Professional Amateurs is a Time Attack team led by Sami Sivonen from Ylöjärvi, Finland. Our mission? To break track records!

But what does the intriguing “1:1” signify? It’s not a simple ratio; rather, it stands for the power-to-weight ratio. The team competes with a self-built Audi R8 that embodies this impressive balance. Imagine a finely tuned machine where every horsepower is matched by an equivalent kilogram of weight. That’s the essence of the R8 1:1.

Sami Sivonen and the crew is on a quest to conquer European tracks, aiming to set new records. Our journey involves pushing the limits, fine-tuning our beast, and leaving tire marks in pursuit of excellence.
