FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Our simulators use the same software that professional drivers and race teams use for training. The high level of physics reproduction by the simulation allows it to replicate the real-life behavior of the tires, suspension, and engines of the real cars that are raced every weekend. The tracks are laser scanned, millimeter accurate reproductions of real-life tracks. The surface is realistic to the point of replicating patches in the track and curbing. The cars are also accurate to the real vehicles. From NASCAR Cup cars to GT3 cars, Indy cars to Formula 1, you can experience what it is like to pilot these amazing machines.
We have both standard and premium race simulators. The cost for standard rigs is $40 for a two-hour session and the cost for a premium rig is $60 for a two-hour session. Sessions include orientation, practice races, and real races with two cars.
We recommend starting out in a standard rig if you have any questions. The advanced rigs provide a higher level of immersion and better controls. They do come with a minimum age limit (16). Aside from that, the standard hardware is a good place to start if you haven't had much experience in driving simulation software. While the cars and tracks are identical, the wheel feedback is lighter and the pedals are lighter as well. If you feel like you want to take it to the next level, and you're 16 or older, you can book another session on one of the advanced rigs.
We currently have a height requirement of 48 inches but recommend a minimum height of 60 inches. We're working on enhancements to better accomodate drivers under 60 inches.
No. We've found that motion rigs, while sometimes adding some immersion, can be a distraction and don't help you to drive better. We've chosen to focus on those methods of immersion that help improve your driving, such as triple monitors and chassis vibration.
Apart from league races and special events, we're here just to have fun, so vehicle damage has been disabled. Just get yourself back to the track and keep driving!
First, you don't have to! Many of the cars are paddle-shifted and don't require the use of a clutch, so we recommend giving that a try, but we can set your experience up with automatic shifting.
All of our rigs come with force-feedback wheels. This means that what is happening in the sim is communicated to you through the forces in the wheel. You will feel things like bumps in the road surface, running over curbs, and when wheels lose traction. In addition, our advanced rigs use vibration units under the seat and pedals which are linked to the simulator's telemetry to further communicate what's going on including surface changes and traction loss. The advanced rigs also provide three monitors for a full panoramic view. For the ultimate immersive experience, you can add VR to your drive (coming soon). This lets you look around and the car, track, and opponents and become part of the simulation.
These are local races, not online! When you book into one of our open race events, you'll practice and race with the other people that have come to drive. You're racing with people you can share a drink and a conversation with after. If you want some more competitive driving, check out our leagues and special events (qualification required).
- Headphones - Due to Covid concerns, each driver must have their own headphones. We have inexpensive pairs for sale, but if you have your own, you may prefer to bring them (standard 1/8" jack only - no Bluetooth or USB-C)
- Comfortable clothing - We're indoors, but it's a large industrial building, so dress for the weather. Shoes should be comfortable as well. Thin soles are best, but anything will do
- Gloves - Some people are more comfortable wearing driving gloves. Feel free to bring your own
