Racing

The ultimate in driving simulation!

Jump into the drivers seat in one of our three state of the art racing simulation modules. These highly realistic racing pods are very similar to those used for practice by many F1 teams.

The Race House is a fun, safe and environmentally friendly way to enjoy motor sport. Three simulators are networked together to allow three friends to race against each other, or solo drivers can just enjoy time trials.

You can watch the briefing video right here.

The Racehouse is an official sponsor of Simon Green Motorsport and has been test driven by many celebrities and personalities including racing icons such as

  • Nick Tandy - Le Mans 24hr 2015 Winner!
  • Freddie Hunt - British racing driver and son of the 1976 F1 World Champion, James Hunt.

  • The simulators move and vibration plates help generate a realistic sensation.
  • You are strapped into a 4-point harnessed bucket seat on a fully actuated hydraulically controlled rig.
  • Race tracks are laser-scanned replicas of real world tracks. They are as realistic as you can get without racing on the real thing and are programmed to allow you to feel every bump and curb on the road beneath your seat.
  • Three large HD screens surround the driver to provide an immersive experience.
  • Your fastest laps will be recorded and race control will give you hints and tips on how to improve your performance.

I have a bad back, should I race?

  • The simulators do move around and the feeling is similar to driving a go-kart. If you have a mild back or neck problem that wouldn't be affected by this, then as long as you are aware of the risks, we would be happy to allow you to take part.
  • However, if you are in any doubt we would advise you talk to your doctor for further advice before making your booking.

I have epilepsy, can I race?
