“lets go racing !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

If you think you are a good racing driver then try this, I was going to be world champion by the time I was 25, but now I understand i have absolutely no chance! What a great time can be had.

“Brilliantly Entertaining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

If you're looking for a great couple of hours of brilliant fun, you've got to try this.

From the moment our group arrived, Nick and the team were professional and attentive. We were made to feel very welcome and found the facilities of an excellent standard.

But, as the name suggests, it was the racing experience we wanted and what an experience we got. The simulator is fully immersive, with moving platforms, force feedback steering, decent graphics and incredible sound effects that gave me goosebumps.

When you put all these components together it really does grip you and, to all intents and purposes, you're in a F1 car, racing other F1 cars flat out around a real race track - what a buzz - just brilliant fun for the money and really gets the adrenalin flowing.

But it wasn't just me, it had the same effect on all of us, so much so, we're already planning our next visit and, personally, I can't wait..

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Honestly, I don't get why there's so many bad reviews, it was amazing! I went with 6 others and had a blast! The customer service is amazing, very friendly and the racing is so much fun, especially with a few people! When people say it wasn't what they was expecting... well health and safety would be an issue (One of the reasons why UK sucks sometimes) and you don't realise once you're in the vehicle, especially when you're focused on winning! Definitely go and check Lets Race out, you will not be disappointed! I also filmed it :) enjoy... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBnE6EVLt-A

“Customer Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

The cars and the driving was ok but not as good as i was expecting disappointed Everything else was dreadful, I would use this company again if it was free the courtesy of the people if you have a problem, the ridiculous "company policy" line that is spun to get around being reasonable, the lack of acknowledgement when they've made a mistake.I don't know how a company can survive with this level of customer service, take my advice stay away if you want to be treated like a human being !!!

“Arcade Biased”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

I went to lets race close to Gatwick in the UK to try out their Formula 1 simulators with a couple of friends.When driving the cars on track the motion of the simulators was not as forceful as I was expecting and the driving experience was very arcade biased. An enjoyable day and i might be back to try and improve my lap time.
