RACECENTRES.COM Sponsored by SRL - "Amazing Simulator Event Management Software. Perfect for your Race Centre or Show Stand"

Definition: A Race Centre (or Racing Centre) is a fixed location facility offering public access to one or more race car simulators.

Usage: Race Centres are establishing a usage that lies somewhere between Karting Centres and Race Circuits. They offer excellent Motor Sport Entertainment facilities for Corporate Leisure, Stag Parties, Kids Parties and Individual Drivers. In addition they have the capacity to offer a unique opportunity for race car drivers to practice on real world circuits as part of their real world race preparation.

Locations: Because race centres make motor sport more accessible to a wider audience, we at racecentres.com wish to see more race centres in the world. Check the following links to see if there are already race centres open near you.

Qualification: There are an ever growing number of organisations active in the race simulation space. There are great advances being made with race simulators, simulator components and simulation software. There are also groups making simulators available to hire. We list organisations offering facilities in one or more fixed locations to the public. The facilities simply need to be supported by a website listing their location, opening times, activity pricing and contact details.

We regularly review and update our listings, but we know we can do it better with your help. Additions and corrections to the above listings are always most welcome. If you know of facilities that we have not yet listed then we would love to hear from you. Thanks from all at RaceCentres.Com.
