SimRace1 Experience the thrill...
If you enjoy Karting, Track Days, Motorsports, Sim' Racing or just love Cars full stop, then you'll very likely love our race experiences we offer too.
At our Swansea based venue we run a wide range of racing experiences for racers of all levels of abilities. If you're new to Sim' Racing no problem - we're always on hand to guide and assist you.
We have 8 interconnected state of the art Racing Simulators, race on your own or as a group.
Each of our Racing Simulators are equipped with Uber Wide Triple Screens which give you an 1.8 metre extra wide view of your surroundings. Each Racing Rig is equipped with premium force feedback steering wheels which will give you steering resistance and road vibration resulting in an realistic racing experience - our load cell brakes will give you assured braking and will gently rumble letting you know you're locking the brakes up. Our Sparco Race Seats will rumble to the feel of the kerbs and kinks of the road surface. Our rigs are cleaned down between users.
Socks, socks, socks! We recommend you to turn up in clean socks and whip your shoes off, our pedals are digital based and you'll race better for it. Otherwise turn up in flat soled trainers, shoes or even karting boots. High heels? Nah...
At our teeny weeny venue we can cater to single racers and up to 8 racers in the same race. Groups, birthday parties and corporate team building we can cater you. Here at at SimRace1 the minimum age to race with us is 11 years of age. At SimRace1 we also periodically hold race events in addition to our Top Gear Style Leaderboards - which get changed and updated each and every month.
SimRace1 is a product of Swansea - if you want to race then "Race On" at SimRace1.
