Corporate Events

Our corporate days are based around time spent using the simulation facility at Cranfield for a unique insight into the world of motorsport driver training. Used by race drivers from all levels of motorsport, our training simulator has been developed with a specific purpose in mind – to make race drivers faster. It also happens to be a lot of fun!

With our links to the motor industry, our onsite team of highly experienced engineers provide the technical capability of creating a number of products and solutions that have been supplied to racing teams the world over, including those competing at the pinnacle of motor racing - Formula 1. Now you and your team can experience the same training techniques used by the very best drivers in the world by visiting our in-house training facility.  

More than just a fun day out

Each aspect of our corporate events is highly flexible and can be tailored to suit the needs of your company. Choose from the different elements below to create your own company corporate day.

Driver coaching on the simulator

With guidance from our professional driver coach each member of the team will take to the track in a Formula 4 car to learn the basics of race driving. After a few laps you will be thrown in at the deep end and jump into a latest specification F1 car for the ultimate driving experience!

Other members can watch from our control room and view the driver data on our live telemetry screens with an explanation of what it means by the coach. Your progress is tracked throughout the day and telemetry printouts are provided.

Challenges are also set with prizes available which makes for a tense and exciting final hour!

Corporate Branding

We are able to add varying levels of branding depending on your requirements. Company logos can be added within the simulation software to the cars and advertising boards around the circuits that are visible by both the driver and spectators.

We can also brand the simulator in your own colours or logos as well as add any banners or pop up stands that you may wish to be on display.

The Simulator

Using products and technology we have developed and supplied to F1 teams, our simulator accurately reproduces a realistic driving experience suitable for the very highest levels of motorsport.

The main training simulator is constructed around a composite single seater chassis formed from a real F1 mould. This positions the driver in the exact seating position as in a real formula car. In addition, real motorsport controls, including the steering wheel and pedals, are adapted to communicate with the simulation software for a true to life experience. The pedals can also be moved back and forth via electronic actuators with the push of a button to quickly adjust for taller or shorter drivers.

The chassis is situated on our in-house designed motion platform with four layers of motion technology. The highly accurate and almost instantaneous system supplies an incredibly realistic driving sensation.

The whole seat also has its own independent motion system which moves inside the car to simulate braking and acceleration.

The visuals can be provided either by our triple projection wrap around screen or VR headset.
