What we're saying

What our clients are saying

  • "BPS is a valuable tool for me in preparing myself for races; it enables me to get up to speed before arriving at the race events ensuring I don't waste track time. I also find the simulator very useful as a coaching tool to help to prepare my team mates for events. The engineers are very helpful and the simulator is very realistic. I would recommend it to anyone who is serious about their racing!"

    Aaron Scott Professional GT and historic driver

  • "Having used the facilities at Base Performance Simulators for a few years now I really see the benefit of doing good quality simulator time in preparation for all my racing activities. Practicing driving techniques and lines is key pre race weekend for myself but also for the customers I coach and race with. It's a great tool for getting up to speed fast!"

    British GT GT3 Champion 2015/2016

  • "I have been training with BPS for a couple of years now. The team whole is not only very nice but also extremely professional. For a gentleman driver, simulator work can make the difference and driving in a GT car is definitely a plus, both in terms of environment and coaching."

    Francois Perrodo FIA WEC GTE Am Champion 2016

  • "Simulators are a valuable aid to my race preparation, and the BPS set up is without doubt one of the best. The vast amount of experience and knowledge shared by the BPS team has become paramount in my development as a GT driver over the years. Highly recommended."

    Jamie Chadwick British GT GT4 Champion 2015

  • "Grange Aston Martin have held a number of guest events at BPS, which all have been exceptionally well received by our guests. For us to be able to offer this experience to taste what it feels like to be a real racing driver is amazing and gives our marketing a different edge. As soon as the guests sit in the simulators the competitive streak comes out in everyone, we then have a full blown race on our hands!"

    Grange Aston Martin Corporate event customer 2015/6

  • "I first used BPS when I started racing in 2013 and I've used them ever since. They are a key part of how I prepare for every race. I really like the atmosphere there and the focus on what I need – plus they are just such a great team to work with! They're friendly, funny and totally professional too. I'd recommend them to anyone who is serious about winning."

    Jake Hughes 2016 GP3 driver with DAMS Racing
    2013 BRDC F4 champion

  • "Base Performance Simulators has been an integral part of the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award for many years. Not only has it helped prepare the finalists for their on-track running, BPS has also provided the judges with full reports on each driver's performance and feedback, important information when trying to select the winner each year. On behalf of all the partners, I would like to thank BPS for its professional and helpful contributions."
