Keep on speeding

Will definitely be back, had a ton of fun racing on the simulated racetrack. Though I was a novice I was speeding around!

fun experience
Nov 2018 • Friends
a trip with elderly relative as joint birthday treat. car & track was preselected as we were novices and there were simple controls which we soon got the hang of. great fun had will certainly be back, and maybe for a longer session next time !! For those who don't like cars maybe try the wall climbing, surfing, spa or indoor flying also available on site :)

Waste of Money and Would No Way Recommend
Aug 2015 • Family
Booked a session for both my hubby and son. Was keen on this place as my son is 9 years old and car mad and I find it quite difficult to get race/car "adventure experiences" for his age group. The vouchers I purchased stated you could chose from a selection of tracks to race around along with a list of a selection of cars you could choose from - it clearly lists these cars. My son was mega excited about what car he would choose when he got there and talked about it for days beforehand!

We arrived ahead of our timeslot as advised. Computers were already switched on to a track which the staff said was the easiest for my son, so fair enough but no choices given and it wasn't until we asked if we could perhaps change the track that we were told why it had been pre-selected. Little if any tuition or instruction was given and, most disappointing of all, absolutely NO choice was given to us as to the cars they could drive. This company's printed literature is a waste of time - I'd even go as far as to say a con! The "adventure" ... term used very loosely ... was over in a flash and resulted in one very disappointed 9 year old who had been looking forward to this for ages!

We drove a very long way for this "adventure" and honestly I would've rather spent the money I paid and the petrol cost elsewhere. Certainly would NOT recommend this venue. Not entirely sure where all these "excellent" ratings on here have come from, but based on our experience, they appear to have gone to a different place to the one we visited!!

Hello Kardu499484 I am sorry to hear you are so unhappy with your visit to us. At the Race House we use our experience in running sessions to select what we feel is the most appropriate car and track for the age of the driver. This is to help them get the most out of their session. As I am sure you can imagine putting a 9 year old straight into a hard to handle car like an Aston Martin DB9 or a Mclaren MP4 would result in them just spinning round and round and not enjoying their time in the car at all. The same with the tracks we select, choosing a difficult track for your first race such as Laguna Seca or Bathurst (Mount Panorama) would often result in a child not even completing one lap. Most would find this very frustrating and would leave unhappy and disheartened. So we recommend that first timers start off with something a bit easier to handle such as a formula car with a lot of down force around an easy track like Lime Rock Park or Donnington. By doing this, and helping novice drivers with tips and coaching, the majority of people have a great time as evidenced by our other fantastic reviews. All of that said, if ever we do get a special request for a car or track then we of course can provide it. We have never turned down a request for a certain car or track, although we have advised against it in the past if we know that the customer would benefit more out of doing something more suitable. We do this because we want every driver who comes to us to have a great time and get the most out of their experience. I'm very sorry that you felt it would be better to post a bad review online rather than simply talking to the staff on the day and expressing your disappointment. Of course had you said this to us on the day we would have been able to do something about it for you. Kind regards The Race House Team

Well worth a go.

An hour of intense fun
Aug 2015 • Solo
I booked a private 1 hour session which is great value, and even better value once you become a RaceHouse member (each session is then half price).

I was able to hit a many different tracks and test myself in a number of chosen cars, including Mclaren 12C GT3, Ford GT GT3 & Williams FW31 to name just a few.

Every member of staff is really friendly and helpful at suggesting car/track combos that you may want to try.

8 of us visited yesterday as part of a team event I had arranged and we had an excellent time! The cars are very realistic with movements you would expect from a real car. Easy to use once you warm the tyres up on the first lap we had a practice, qualifiers and then a final. It was great to do in a group and we were well and truly looked after by the lady running the Racehouse! She was great with the whole team and very knowledgeable about the cars, the courses and of tips to win your race! We had a great time...
