F1 and V8 Simulator Racing Sessions

At Simulator World, we get many questions about the F1 and V8 Supercar simulators, as well as the functions available for booking. You’ll find answers about these and many more questions below. If you have further questions or need help booking a racing session, please call, email or visit us today!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What does Simulator World offer?

A: We offer 3 of the only 6DoF motion simulator racing machines, networked for your exhilarating racing session. We also offer 5 high quality 2DoF motion simulator racing machines, networked for your function or racing session.
We are experts in Bucks Parties, Business Team Building and Teen Parties (aged 11+). We are very popular for gift givers looking for a unique yet unbelievable present to give. Of course, we’re also popular with those wannabe racers who just have a spare hour and want to beat our Stig’s times.

Q: Can I buy racing sessions for myself or as a gift?

A: Gosh yes! We thrive on giving everyone a great experience and love it when people think our racing sessions are a great present to give to loved ones. Options at checkout are available for you to send a voucher to another person or just add your details and book in for yourself — simple! You can buy now and book later with 12 months to redeem. 

Q: How old or tall do I need to be (including weight)?

A: Although all of our motion racing simulator seats are adjustable and we do offer seat prop ups, we recommend a minimum age of at least 10 years due to the motion factor. The tallest racer to fit in the simulators has been 6 foot 11 (2.10 m) and the heaviest about 150kgs (for both V8's and F1's). The minimum height is about 1.3 m,in order to reach the adjustable pedals and head height for safety. The pedals can be adjusted by you at the push of a button. There is also an emergency stop button for staff plus one in the cockpit for you.

We don't advertise for kids parties as we don't want to mislead anyone into thinking we can accommodate very young children aged around 7 years. Rollercoasters have height minimums and so do we, due to the motion. As our machines don't sit right near the ground and they move every which way, we must have safety precautions for young children. These machines are tested by our own children so yours can safely enjoy them too, so we are well aware of the height minimum for your kids to enjoy the ride! 

Q: Can I have a great Bucks party or Business Team building event?

A: If you love racing, competitive fun and you kind of want to show your friends and work mates who's the best, then visit our Functions page and enquire about the right party for you. We are popular for Bucks nights so please enquire about your preferred day/time at your earliest convenience to avoid disappointment. We are a pretty cool hang out for teens also, who want that amazing 11th birthday and beyond. We offer catering to suit your party, too. Team building for businesses is proving to be a growing part of our business, and we are amazed at how many repeat customers we get. We offer racing events for small to medium teams and help you find the right package to suit groups of all men or a mix of women also. You would be amazed how much the ladies love to put the pedal to the metal!

Q: What tracks can I race on?

A: There are over 100 tracks from around the world. You can race on your favourites such as Bathurst, Phillip Island, Albert Park, Sandown, Monaco and Spa. You can decide the track, or our seasoned staff will happily guide you to the right track for your racing level. 

Q: Do I need to book in advance?

A: Booking in advance is a very good idea. Please book in advance to avoid missing your preferred time and day, so you can get the full experience and star treatment from our wonderful staff. Just be mindful of the cancellation policy for weekdays or weekends. Weekends are busier and therefore, just like any other business, we allocate a time to you. If you don't show up we will lose out because we could have filled that spot if notice was given. You will therefore forfeit your voucher if you 'just don't show up'. 

We do however try our best to accommodate everyones needs and rebooking may be an option. This will vary depending on the time/day and is available for a $20 rebooking fee (unless the appropriate notice was given prior). You will have 12 months to redeem your racing session, so there is plenty of time to sort out a race day.
