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.

Toilet facilities available. Staff were very friendly and chatty and informative. They clearly explained how to use the equipment and gave advise and a commentary of the races. Ideal... 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.

Tl;dr great fun, challenging racing but not such good value. Great staff. Went on a stag do, was great fun, staff are very friendly and helpful. Racing itself is very tricky, with quite a learning curve, but rewarding to see yourself improve. The simulators are good, but do appear to be a bit 'wooden' with one or two sims missing... More

I have to admit that I had no real idea what to expect as my wife had bought us (my two sons and me) gift vouchers last Christmas. We finally got around to making a booking and attending the centre. First appearances are not great as it is in a dated and slightly run down shopping centre. Inside was dark... More
