F1 Christmas Gift Ideas

We are fast approaching that magical time of year again when we gather together with our families and closest friends to celebrate those relationships. Once a year we show our appreciation for their help in getting through the more difficult times, remember the many better memories shared, and look forward to what lays in store in the future.

It is of course the thought that counts when we buy one another gifts at this time, and it sure can take a lot of thinking to balance the appreciation for someone in your life with the expense of buying something to represent that. So how do we decide the right Christmas present for everyone? We here at Lets Race don't know all of your friends and family as well as you do, but we do know racing fans!

Should you know which team and / or driver they follow, then there is a plethora of merchandise available to buy and show that support for each of the Grand Prix weekends. As the Marussia Formula One teams fan HQ, we sell a wide range of clothing and in a variety of sizes. Furthermore, you will receive a 20% discount if you buy a race experience!


Merchandise is a great gift for any motorsport fan, but memories are even better. Driving experiences are becoming ever more popular, with the chance to get behind the wheel of a range of supercars around a large variety of circuits within the UK. For those wanting the formula racing experience, there is also a small selection of single seater cars that you can race around those same circuits to get that wind in the face excitement. All of these driving experiences will cost you though to cover the insurance and fuel burnt during your limited time in the driving seat itself. If this is the option you take then our advice is to look up the best locations to visit where the instructors will let you loose (within reason!) rather than limiting your rev limit or straight line speed.

There is of course another alternative where you will be able to give that person special to you an experience to remember in a contemporary Formula 1 car, and at a fraction of the cost! Not only is the Lets Race experience cheaper and a longer duration than the other experiences available, it is also more flexible to your desires. With 10 full motion simulators we can offer wheel to wheel racing around the worlds greatest circuits, and have a number of cars available should they wish to try something else after driving the current breed of Formula One race car. Knowing that it can be difficult to arrange a time and date that all drivers can make, you can buy a gift card of any value to be used within centre when required. This provides the option to organise the race at a time convenient to you and then book with ourselves to keep that time free. You can pre-pay any amount of money on that gift card and it can be used as and when they would like, and for just £2.50 you can complete the look of your gift card by including a pit pass style lanyard. To complete the experience you can also add one of our set of trophies to be awarded to first, second and third positions, with a number of price options available depending on the style requested.


Lets Race have all of the options available to you at Christmas time to give those loved ones an experience they will never forget on any budget!
