Our Racing Simulator consists entirely of professional hardware to provide the most authentic experience. Unlike other generic events companies that utilise cheap & basic equipment, Upshift is an Expert Supplier in Elite Performance Racing Simulator equipment, so we have direct access to the very best equipment on the market. We design and provide simulator packages to top tier sim racers and professional racing drivers, and as such, our Racing Simulator Hire is of a higher standard than the competition.

What does this mean for you? The user's enjoyment and overall experience is much greater.

With our Racing Simulator, you truly feel like you are driving a real car, wrestling the powerful racing wheel vibrates and fights you in your hands as you speed along the track, hunkered low down in the chunky bolstered bucket seat. The combination of the roar of the engine from the Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound Speakers and the Ultrawide Curved High Resolution gaming monitor immerses you fully in the action.

Our Racing Simulators are eye-catching and are popular at events always drawing attention. Hotlap competitions always bring out the competitive side, and leads to exciting showdowns to see who's number 1!
