Our full motion, professional race car simulators feature a booming sound system, creating an atmosphere that simply has to be experienced to be believed.

Down on the illuminated grated floor, our 10 networked sims allow drivers to experience a wide variety of circuits, meaning you can race on the same tracks as the real racing stars.Lets Race is proud to announce a new partnership with the Marussia F1 Team, which will see us become the fan headquaters for the team racing in the 2013 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.The Marussia F1 Team is a young and ambitious challenger in the FIA Formula 1 World Championship.

I bought 3 tickets as Christmas presents.
When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly member of staff & she booked us in.
We had the 8.30pm slot & we were the only people there.
We sat in the cafe & had drinks & pizza from the cafe of which was very clean & well stocked.
Whilst they were then called to the induction the rest of us there to spectate waited in the cafe. Which is open plan & there is an opportunity to take pictures of the f1 racing cars they have there & try on the clothing should you wish to purchase any.
Then we were allowed to sit in the viewing gallery which is in the same room as the simulators.
2 of the 3 people I bought tickets for really enjoyed the experience & would definitely go again. Unfortunately the other person after the practise race stopped & the very kind member of staff asked if he was ok & did he want to have the effects turned off. But it wasn't to be. So the staff member asked if I would like to take their place. I did & it was great fun. The movement of the f1 may not be to some peoples tastes but this can be turned off. I think if you are looking for a present for someone that is able to lift themselves out of the simulator, they don't get motion sickness (again remember this can be turned off) then go & have fun! I'm not sure how it would be if all 10 f1 simulators were filled & the whole place full of people. But of course if you are competitive book a day when it's full up :-) .

Organised a spur of the moment race afternoon for 10 of us. Really good fun - everyone enjoyed themselves. I think the best way to judge service is when there is a 'problem' and the staff working today (29/12/13) did a really good job. The ones not racing were hoping to have a go in the free standing simulator. Unfortunately it wasn't working due to software problems. However, the people working handled it really well and offered us a few 'flying laps' at the end of our session. As it happened we couldn't take it up as we had a meal booked afterwards but at least they tried. Excellent and thanks again.

12 of us went for a team building event. It was great fun. The staff were really helpful and I thought the racing was excellent value and enjoyed by both the chaps and ladies in the group, although its fair to say it does bring out the competitive nature in some :). I would avoid the pit stop challenge at £10 per head, it was good fun but not worth the cost
I would highly recommend this for team building or just a group outing

Hi Roger M,

I'm sorry to hear your review of Lets Race. We have taken on board all feedback from the past and at the end of October completely revamped our product and pricing structure which means we now have shorter and longer sessions with peak and off peak pricing.

Even better if you book 3 months in advance we offer huge savings!

Kind Regards,
Ben
