Drive a Formula 1 car in London! Ok, not an actual Formula 1 car, but a perfect simulation of one, and the best chance most of us have to experience how it feels to drive a F1 car!

This F1 simulator experience is less than an hour's drive from
London, and is a mind-blowingly accurate simulation of actual F1
driving. Up to ten people can race in the Formula 1 simulators at
any one time, so participants can get nice and competitive! These
F1 simulators use the most cutting edge technology and motion
plates to offer you the closest feeling to actual F1 driving that
most of us will ever experience!
You will sit in your F1 simulator, faced with a 3 screen display. Once everyone is ready to go, it's time to put pedal to metal and try to out-drive your racing opponents - without any fear of injury, as it only feels like you are moving at over 200mph!The Formula 1 Simulation driving in London will begin with a briefing where you are introduced to the incredible F1 Simulators you will be driving. You will sit into the almost-horizontal bucket seats, get strapped in, and get a feel for your F1 'car'.
The first driving session is a 15 minute qualifier and practice session, where you can get used to the dynamics of the simulator - and race for your grid position for the main race!
The final race is a 15 minute driving session, and if you want to feel the glory of an F1 podium finish you'll have to pull some amazing precision driving out of the bag! After the main event, you will receive your driving analysis and the results of the race, as well as a post-race debrief where you can ask your instructor for feedback, or have any remaining questions answered.

The F1 Simulators can give out some serious G force, so anyone with back or neck injuries and weaknesses need to seek advice from their doctor before participating.
They do provide the option to turn off the motion or alter the
motion level to your preferred amount.
Your body will react to the F1 Simulator just like it would in a real Formula 1 car - a big adrenaline rush and a raised heart rate - so if you suffer from a heart condition or high blood pressure that may be affected by the F1 Simulator, this experience is unfortunately not for you.

Average rating: 4 stars out of 5
It would be great to have your branch in London. More time to race would be nice as 15 min goes really fast. Overall very good experience and a very good business idea. Would be awesome to see the centre expand.
All the simulators have a motion level that you can turn off completely or alter the to your preference.
