Experience Virtual Reality Racing here at SimRace1!
When you put on our VR Headsets over your head you will see the racing world through 360 degree vision. Your view of the world will be in the same perspective as when you drive a real Car! You will move your head left, right, up and down - you can even turn your Head right around to look out of the rear window of the Car. It's difficult to explain
what Virtual Reality Racing is like - it's something you have to experience to understand.
When trying Virtual Reality Racing for the first time at SimRace1, you will be put through a mini VR Racing Introduction which will introduce you to Virtual Reality Racing. This will take about 10-15 minutes to complete - don't worry, if you come along with company after your first 2 laps you'll be racing against one another.
We recommend trying Virtual Reality Racing for 30 minutes for the first time. If you've booked an hour racing session we recommend 30 - 35 minutes in VR and then to spend the remainder of your session racing using our large 4K screens. On completion of your Virtual Reality introduction you will be free to spend longer racing in Virtual Reality on your next visit.
