a driving experience like no other
Available First Friday of Every Month
At Lets Race, our full-motion simulators are capable of recreating the experience of driving a number of legendary formula 1 cars. With time constraints, though, it's usually only possible for a would-be driver to try out one. But how can you possibly choose from so many exciting dream vehicles? With our Trial Nights, you don't have to! This experience is perfect for any Formula 1 fan who wants to say they've been in the driver's seat of not just one but four incredible cars. 80 minutes of racing in the car you choose guaranteed!
What are trial nights?
We first created trial nights in order to rate and rank drivers who were going to take part in our championship race events and after huge success, we have continued to run these on week night evenings as a way of customers having a different driving experience. By trying out our collection of cars on a range of race circuits from around the world, you can truly test your driving abilities and experience the different driving styles of each car. You will soon find a favourite vehicle that suits your style.
