Audi showcases Australia’s best drives in new Seven show

Audi Australia will partner with Network Seven on a branded program, Australia’s Best Drives, which will air over the next six Saturdays.

Commencing on November 18, the program will be hosted by TV presenter Shane Jolley as he shows viewers some of Australia’s best roads and secret stopovers.

The series will also feature some of Audi’s most popular models including the R8 Spyder supercar, A5 Coupe and TT RS Roadster.

Angela Rapley, director of content at PHD, said in a statement: “I think this series is like a love letter to Australia and the hidden gems which make it absolutely one of the best countries in the world in which to take a driving holiday. It’s such a beautiful country and the series will hopefully inspire people to pack up the car and take that road trip of a lifetime.”

Anna Burgdorf, marketing and communications director at Audi Australia, said in a statement: “Australia’s best driving routes, combined with authentic, local experiences was an ideal playground for Audi to present our extraordinary range of vehicles, and our progressive technology, to a national audience.

“We are incredibly fortunate to enjoy an abundance of great roads, interesting destinations and hidden gems in Australia, but it’s easy to miss the best parts without local knowledge. We’re pleased to present this new series to encourage Australians to make the most of their road trips over the holidays, and thanks to our tips for these six locations, will ensure that viewers see them at their finest.”

Audi’s brand ambassadors, including award winning chef Guillaume Brahimi, surfboard designer Hayden Cox and fashion designer Collette Dinnigan, will also make guest appearances.
