Overview
More
We began our journey over 10 years ago as the first race car simulation venue in the UK and have since gone to become the first chain of simulation venues with our sister venue in Halifax. Each of our ten race pod simulators has it's own 2.8m HD screen, allowing each driver to become completely immersed in the experience whilst racing around world famous circuits. The Race Centre provides an amazing modern alternative to karting making it ideal for Corporate Events, Stag Parties, Kids Parties, Private Groups and Birthdays, as well as for individual racing practice.

Used an Experience voucher for a 3 hour "Open Racing event" on the Monza circuit. Good fun and needs a lot of concentration! There were 16 people booked in (and 10 screens and race-'pods'/cockpits) so we were split into 2 groups of 8 for practise...More

Thoroughly enjoyed my Christmas present of an afternoons racing at this centre. The 2 chaps were very friendly and helpful - this being my first time there. Our friends came with us and enjoyed being spectators. The driving was very realistic and fun.
