Race / Racing Centres

A Race Centre (or Racing Centre) is a fixed location facility offering public access to one or more race car simulators. Race Centres have established a usage that lies somewhere between Karting Centres and Race Circuits. They offer excellent Motor Sport Entertainment facilities for Corporate Leisure, Stag Parties, Kids Parties and Individual Drivers. In addition they have the capacity to offer a unique opportunity for race car drivers to practice on real world circuits as part of their real world race preparations.

Qualification: There are an ever growing number of organisations active in the race simulation space. There are great advances being made with race simulators, simulator components and simulation software. There are also groups making simulators available to hire. We list organisations offering facilities in one or more fixed locations to the public. The facilities simply need to be supported by a website listing their location, opening times, activity pricing and contact details.

Race centres make motor sport partipation more accessible to a wider audience, so we want to see more. We regularly review and update our listings, but we know we can do it better with your help. Additions and corrections to the above listings are always most welcome. If you know of facilities that we have not yet listed then we would love to hear from you. Thanks from all at RaceCentres.Com.
