“Good start but needs a couple of things to make 5*”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

I think the owner should be congratulated on creating a unique experience. Overall I think they have done well to get the project on the road. However I have a few suggestions for improvements.

Of the 7 tracks i raced on, 3 of the 7 were outstanding in design with a mix of high straights and tight bends. 2 of the short tracks in my opinion were just too short and complicated with regards to changing lane position midway through a race. The large track upstairs looked outstanding in design and i was eager to race there. Unfortunately it was dissapointing as the cars would not fall off the track even when travelling at full speed. What fun is a race if you dont need to alter your speed around bends? I would advise that on tracks like this they should either significantly increase the speed of the cars or make the bends tighter to avoid this problem.

Overall a good first visit but needs few issues sorting

“Excellent - What a Brilliant Place!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

My son and husband loved this place. We took 8 kids and a couple of adults for a party last weekend. The staff are excellent and the tracks are amazing. The kids got to go on all of the tracks. The computer systems that they have to allow the kids to race properly and see who won and who was in front etc are great. Its completely different from the Scalextrix I had as a kid! So much better. The detail on each of the tracks with twists, bends and tunnels is amazing. Also the scenery around each track has minute details from which you can see how much these guys have put into building this place. The party area after with food for the kids was great also. I will definately be returning. Well worth a visit!

“Perfect for my Sons 9th birthday!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

My son had his 9th birthday party here with his school & rugby friends. They all had a fantastic time & had plenty of time to each have a go on the various tracks! The 2 guys that run this place are brilliant, friendly & nothing was too much trouble. After the racing the boys had some food (which there was plenty of) & the party finished perfectly with a team photo of them holding the stonerig trophy!!
I would definitely recommend this & will be back soon for more racing fun!
Thanks guys

“Stonerig Raceway, Lees, Oldham”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Excellent party venue for boys and girls aged 8 upwards. My grandson was just a little too old for a play centre party. This had the same feel but with exciting race tracks (like Scalextrics) and the kids enjoyed racing against one another. Good qualtiy party food and friendly service the whole way through.
