Come to BPS to use our in-house simulators. 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 just five minutes away.
With an extensive garage of GT and Touring Cars tested by professional drivers, the benefits of simulation is no longer restricted to single-seater drivers.
Capitalising on Darren Turner's extensive GT racing experience, combined with his involvement with world-leading simulators, the BPS GT is a purpose built tool for both professionals and amateur racers.
Using a real GT chassis provides not only a more immersive experience but a more comfortable environment for drivers, some of which may never have driven a single-seater before.
Equipped with two seats, your driver coach or engineer has the option to coach you from inside the car to make sure you make the most of every lap.
After a run you can relocate to the BPS GT control room to complete your data analysis. In order to ensure that clients get the most out of a session, BPS can arrange GT or Touring car specialist engineers and driver coaches to extract the best lap time ahead of your next event.
BPS is constantly developing all of its car models to make sure they are the most accurate in the field, and GTs and Touring Cars are not ignored. With a choice of either paddle or stick shift gear change, we can even assist historic racers and rally drivers.
This state-of-the art simulator has been designed from the ground up by BPS to produce an interactive virtual reality to enable the driver/team to maximise both experience and potential.
Our single-seater simulator has a six metre wraparound screen, which creates a fully immersive driving environment. Whilst seated in the cockpit you will be surrounded by high resolution graphics from floor to ceiling. Professional quality speakers deliver realistic sound.
In 2015 BPS invested in a state of the art Moog motion system. Moving with six degrees of freedom, the simulator provides physical cues to your body, replicating the motion of a car on track.
Recreate your normal driving position with our electronically adjustable pedal box. Our steering wheel, complete with LCD screen, connects you to your virtual race car. BPS offers a wide range of car models to deliver simulator solutions for all levels of competition.
Our car model can be developed and manipulated to mimic any real vehicle. Live telemetry is transmitted to the control room to be analysed by your team, or with a BPS simulation expert. This data can be taken away at the end of the session to allow further integration into your racing programme.
BPS provides teams and drivers with the technology they need to get the results they want. We spend our time making sure that our software, track modelling and car files are up to date and accurate, so you are familiar with the track you need for your next race.

The single projector BPS 2.0 is very much designed for the private individual, enabling them to have a simulator at home without the running costs involved with a larger simulator.
Still using the high quality BPS graphics and hardware, but with a variety of smaller screen options and a single, configurable control station, BPS 2.0 can be added to a garage, games room or workshop.
BPS can use their extensive knowledge of simulation to create bespoke solutions to suit any style of racing, car type or installation space.
We work with our customers to come up with something to suit their needs, whether that is a system for high-volume event use, supporting a manufacturer programme, or a luxury specification to be situated in a well-appointed home.

Using Base Performance's expertise and experience in circuit and car modelling, the destination and car you require is always available.
One year warranty on all major components is also included. Terms and conditions apply.
We provide bespoke events for businesses entertaining clients or rewarding colleagues, or even drivers activating their sponsorship programmes.
With sole use of a BPS simulator, a group of 6-10 people can get an exclusive insight into the world of the racing driver. If you would like to go head-to-head against your friends, or find out which office is fastest, you can take advantage of both BPS simulators and end your day with a multi-player race.
Starting with a cooked breakfast on site and a briefing by your driver coach, each guest will drive a selection of cars and circuits, with full data analysis after each run.
Lunch can be arranged at BPS or at a local restaurant before finishing off with a qualifying lap in a grand prix car, pitching your times against the professionals.
Each guest receives a BPS gift bag, which can be supplemented with your branded products, and the fastest driver, most improved and most spectacular also get a prize for their efforts.
In addition BPS can arrange accommodation and meeting spaces in the local area, live motorsport activities, racing team visits or even an evening round of golf for you and your guests.

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!
