Prepare to experience what it’s like to be a professional racing driver in this Simulator Race Experience for one.
At Chandler’s Ford or Halifax you’ll compete against the other drivers in an adrenaline-fuelled race to the finish line. Starting off in a FF1600 simulator, you’ll get to grips with the controls as you qualify for your place on the grid. Then the fun really begins as you speed round the circuit, wheel to wheel with your competitors. Once you’ve mastered the race car, you’ll upgrade to a modern racing car for more racing, battling it out for the coveted trophy.
Your voucher is valid for 12 months from the date of issue, while government restrictions apply in relation to Covid-19 we are offering free extensions on all experiences so you can take your experience when the time is right.
On arrival at the centre, you will need to register before receiving a driver’s briefing, which includes an introduction to the controls on the simulator and details on how the event will be run. You will then be unleashed onto the circuit for your 20 minutes of practice and qualifying. You’ll use this time to learn how to handle the car and get to grips with the best lines into and out of the corners, before getting in that all-important fast lap to determine your position on the grid.
When your grid position has been determined, it's time for your first race to start. With all drivers ready, you will find yourself on the starting grid waiting for the start light procedure to commence. With the engine revs rising all around you, you will need to time your start to perfection as the lights turn to green.
Points will be awarded and preparations made for the next race. Once you have mastered the FF1600, you will be upgraded to a modern race car. Trophies will be awarded to the top three drivers of what will be an exciting and memorable race event.
The experience is run on most weekends throughout the year.
