I've never driven in a sim cockpit before. Can I still take a test drive?
Absolutely! The joy of sim racing is that pretty much anyone can get in and start to pick it up straight away.
If you are inexperienced we will provide guidance and feedback so you can settle in to the driving experience. Want us to just leave you alone to get to grips with it yourself? We can do that too.
We have helped a number of first time sim drivers take their first steps into the rewarding world of sim racing!
When can I take a test drive?
PSR1 setup: We have an online calendar booking service at the bottom of this page. Choose your preferred date and time and get yourself booked in.
PSR3 setup: Arrive and drive at Gasoline Juice.
How long can I drive for?
PSR1 setup: Test drive slots are 1 hour long. There is no limit to the number of slots you can book.
PSR3 setup: At Gasoline Juice, 20 minute codes are purchasable at the bar.
What does it cost?
For the PSR1 setup at Daventry, there is a £50 charge for a 1 hour session. This fee is to make sure the rig is kept available for people who have a genuine interest in testing the equipment or experience.
Payment will be taken on the day by Credit or Debit card.
For the PSR3 setup at Weedon, there is a £10 charge for a 20 minute session. Payment via Credit or Debit card.
I'm short, big or tall, can I still take a test drive?
Yes, we have a seat slider to quickly adjust the pedal and seat distance to cater for short / long legs, short / long arms.
In the PSR1 (Daventry) setup, we use the Cobra Sebring GT seat we use as standard on the demo rig is typically suitable for people up to 6' 2" and around 100kg.
If you are larger than this, we have excellent seats to suit the larger frame. We can fit one to the rig given enough notice. Please tell us about this as you book your test drive slot so we can add the correct seat to make your experience more comfortable.
In the PSR3 (Weedon) setup, we use the PRO SIMRIG XL Sim Racing Seat, which is great for drivers of all sizes, including very tall and larger buillds.
I am disabled or have a physical limitation, can I still take a test drive?
Yes, we have adapted sim rigs for various disabilities and restrictions previously. Please help us understand any limitations you may have with a standard setup (for example: not being able to use foot pedals, therefore requiring a hand braking setup). This way we can make sure that any required adaptations can be made to the demo rig in time for your test drive.
The main part of our facility in Daventry is wheelchair friendly, however the toilet facilities are not particularly wheel chair friendly. The nearest wheelchair friendly toilets are located at McDonalds, a short drive from our facility.
If I like what I see, can I take it away with me the same day?

- Toilet with hand washing facilities

- Normally there is a tin of biscuits on the go as well!
What else do I need to know?
You need to be in good health. You will need to understand the risks associated with operating high-power direct drive systems and sign an insurance waiver.
If you are under 18 you will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
