Welcome to Sideways

Sideways (Driving Club) is for anyone who loves to experience "the real thing". It is for those who want more than what their Playstation or Xbox can offer. We are several levels above the Playstation / XBox / general arcade market, and we are able to provide an experience that is very close to driving the real thing - be that a BMW Audi R8, V8 Supercar, AMG SLS, F3 or even a F1 car. Real race drivers such as Darryl O'Young, Matthew Solomon, Matthew Marsh, James Atter and many others use our sims to hone their race craft and that is a great testament to the quality and realism of our product.

Birthday Event Flow

Your corporate event begins with group registration, a quick briefing and your qualifying sessions. Qualifying determines the first start grids, while most importantly everyone gets equal amounts of racing regardless.

The adrenaline really starts to pump as you find yourself on the grid for your first race. You will need to keep your cool as you race wheel to wheel against the competition. Your event will start with a lower powered race car to allow everyone to gain confidence before moving onto faster and more technically challenging cars. The top three drivers will be awarded prizes at the end of your event.

We will always be focused on giving you as much racing as possible whilst you are with us, but it’s ultimately your corporate event and we run it at your pace. If you want back to back races with no stopping then that’s what we will give you. When comparing like for like with go karting, you will typically get approx double the track time.

Height Restrictions

The following height restrictions apply – minimum 5’50” (150cm), maximum is 6’09” (205cm).


Friends and family are welcome to come and watch.

Great event at a great venue. Good to be able to network with a diverse group of other Localiiz clients who I otherwise probably wouldn’t have the opportunity to connect with.Gareth Punton – Cellarmaster Wines
