Gift experiences

Do you know someone who wants to experience all the thrills of driving on classic racing circuits in the racing car of their dreams? Without risking themselves or their wallet? Base Performance Simulators now offers gift cards that means you can make that dream come true. No experience necessary.

BPS not only caters for professional racing drivers, but for anyone looking for an alternative gift for family and friends. For as little as £175, a BPS gift card allows your guest to feel the excitement of racing in a 100% safe environment. No racing licence is needed, no road car licence either. All we ask is that they are tall enough to reach the pedals.

A BPS gift experience is the perfect present for the petrolhead in your life. Upon payment we despatch a gift card to your door to give to your loved one. This can then be redeemed by contacting BPS and selecting the time, date and simulator of their choice.

Choose from screaming down the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans in an Aston Martin Vantage, or perhaps snake through the streets of Monaco in a classic grand prix car. With a few clicks of the mouse, they can change destination too. Head over to try their hand at the Singapore night race or see where they would qualify in Abu Dhabi.

From green lights to chequered flag, drivers will be assisted by the same BPS staff who work with professional racers, so they can learn all the tips that help them find those tenths of a second. As a memento of the day, guests can take away telemetry of their driving compared to real racers. Unlike some traditional track days, we don't charge for photos or videos. We want guests to leave with something to put up on their office wall or show off down the pub on a Friday night. There is a good chance of crossing paths with a future racing star or a sportscar legend in the hallway too!

Conveniently located on the Oxfordshire/Northamptonshire border, you can be at BPS within 90 minutes from central London and one hour from Birmingham. Heathrow and Birmingham airports are within easy reach by both road and rail; Banbury train station is 5 minutes away.

Sessions are available Monday to Friday, from 9am to 9pm, 12 months a year. We're happy for two drivers to share a gift experience session, however for group experiences please check out our events page.
