I went to the F1 experience with my brother as a Christmas present and had an ace time. For a simulator, I was surprised at how realistic things were. The whole day was well organised and the guys who ran it were super helpful and approachable. Highly recommended!!

Bought this for Christmas for my husband and F1 mad 14 year old. They both absolutely loved it, competing with others for a place in the top 3 was great. They enjoyed the cars/screens and they had alot of good driving time, well worth the money. As a spectator i also enjoyed it, time flew by. a great afternoon out, and a great present - will definitely be booking again!

Yes I recommend this product.
Used an Experience voucher for a 3 hour "Open Racing event" on the Monza circuit. Good fun and needs a lot of concentration! There were 16 people booked in (and 10 screens and race-'pods'/cockpits) so we were split into 2 groups of 8 for practise and qualifying. This was a 20 minute session, where we found out that Formula Ford cars are decidedly "skittish" - think Bambi on ice at times! After everyone had had a qualifying session, it was then into the races themselves. We had 4 roughly 12-minute races, so 2 races each, which didn't finish when the winner crossed the line, but when the last or penultimate driver did - so if you're good enough to win, you can continue racing looking to improve your line/times! Then it was a step up to the "big beasts", a 2007 F1 Sauber with 7 gears and 740-odd horsepower! Felt more under control with these - unless you got on the power too early and then it was insta-spin! Again there were 4 races - 2 each - of similar duration to the above, before the final standings were announced and the top 3 received their trophies atop the podium - but without the traditional Champagne-spraying!! All told, in a 3 hour session I was probably in the race-seat for about 70-80 minutes, and driving/racing for about 60 minutes in total. So although there's some waiting around if you're not racing, it never seems to be for too long and it's fascinating watching other players show how to do it - or not! The staff were knowledgeable and enthusiastic - especially when I asked for help getting around the 2 Lesmo corners - at which I seemed to spend more time in the gravel traps than on tarmac!!! And as far as I can tell, after qualifying the racers are generally split up into the better drivers and the less able, so people are competing against those of a similar standard. I had a very enjoyable 3 hours and when you look at it, it equates to £12 per hour which I think is pretty reasonable in this day and age. Even more so when I consider that the voucher (a gift) was originally for a "Helicopter Blast" experience which would have lasted a whole 5 minutes - and that's not a typo! If you're competitive, or just want to have a go.... go for it, you'll enjoy it!
