There’s plenty going on at
Simply Race at the moment - but even more exciting is that Christmas is just around the corner, and we’re taking bookings now for Christmas parties!
If you’re planning a festive outing for you and your co-workers (or you just want to go quicker than your boss!), we can put together a package for you. Whether looking for an activity to complement dinner at drinks at the restaurants and bars near us, or just a more casual activity, our 15 pro-grade simulators and fully licensed bar is set up for every type of get-together.
Give the gift of lap time
If you’ve got a racing nut or petrolhead in your family, or you want to treat a mate, then one of our eVouchers makes the perfect Christmas gift. These vouchers can be redeemed against our practice sessions, as well as our Friday Night Unlimited evenings.
The vouchers are valid for one year from Christmas Day onwards, and are on sale at a 20% discount on normal practice sessions or Friday Night Unlimited prices. And if you leave your Christmas shopping to the last minute, don’t panic: they’re on sale all the way until Christmas Eve.

Our very own in-house racing pro Will Tregurtha has finished off a stellar season in the DTM Trophy, the GT series that supports the legendary pan-European championship. He finished third and second in the final two races of the year at the Norisring street circuit in Nuremberg, Germany, helping him to second place in the final standings in his CV Performance Group Mercedes-AMG.
Over a 14-race season, Will claimed two wins (one each at the Lausitzring and the Red Bull Ring) and took 11 podium finishes in all. Congratulations on a great season, and here’s to bigger and better things in 2022!
At Simply Race, we’re constantly striving to enhance our fleet of simulators, and we’ve been able to deploy a variety of technologies from our partners Sim 3D to give you experiences as realistic as possible. These include:
● Fan Link: high-airflow fans that give you the effect of winds when driving an open-wheel car
● Rumble Link: pedal vibration technology that gives you feel on the brakes and when the rear loses grip, for more instinctive driving
● LED Screens: light boxes attached to our monitors that give flag and race information to drivers in real time
● Paddles: magnetic shifters that demand more force but return quicker, to better replicate real-world upshifts and downshifts
As our resident pro Will puts it: "It’s absolutely mega. I’ve raced a Nissan GTR GT3 at Silverstone and the paddles feel exactly the same. It’s really nice."
If you haven’t tried them out yourself, there’s never been a better time through one of our practice sessions on your choice of car and track.
