Your event begins with group registration, a quick briefing and your qualifying sessions. Qualifying determines some early points and the first start grids. Everyone gets equal amounts of racing regardless.
The adrenaline really starts to pump as you find yourself on the grid for your first race. You will need to keep your cool as you race wheel to wheel against the competition. Your event will start with a lower powered race car to allow everyone to gain confidence before progressing to something faster. Podium presentations to the top three drivers at the end of your event.
We will always be focused on giving you as much racing as possible whilst you are with us. But it’s ultimately your event and we run it at your pace. If you want back to back races with no stopping then that’s what we will give you. When comparing like for like with go karting, you will typically get approx double the track time.
The following height restrictions apply – minimum 4’5” (135cm), maximum is 6’11” (210cm).
As many friends and family as you like are welcome to come and watch.
Dress comfortably (i.e. in loose fitting clothing) and wear flat-soled shoes rather than trainers.
Cars and Circuits
As a guide, unless you choose a specific circuit, the venue will offer you a choice from four circuits (often coinciding with those on the F1 calendar). Each combination will have been previously selected and tested to ensure maximum customer enjoyment.

We can't say enough how much we loved our afternoon at The Race Centre. Steve did not stop for the rest of the day about how it was apparently my fault that he lost it on the start line of the last race! Classic!Gary Jenkins
Top Stag! Beers and Racing! It really got everyone chatting and ready for our night out. Please pass our thanks to the lads who looked after us so well on the day. We will be finding an excuse to return soon!M.Longhurst
We just did not realise how realistic it was going to be until we tried it. Even better than we were expecting!Chris
