Pedal to the metal, pure racing realism.
For one weekend, GOVR invites you to feel the full force of true-to-life VR racing. Take the wheel of professionally simulated and tested real-world cars from a variety of classes and eras, and race on virtual carbon-copies of the world’s most exhilarating race tracks.
Using an industry-grade, ultra-responsive set of steering wheel and pedals, you’ll experience high-precision VR racing with atmospheric conditions and weather physics that affect vehicle performance and handling in real-time. Our VR racing instructor will show you the ropes of VR racing and help you take the chequered flag. This isn’t a coin-operated, arcade game. This is pure racing realism.
Please note that VR racing can be a more intense and a less comfortable VR experience for some people than other experiences available at GOVR cafe.
Four packages are available during this VR Sim Racing Weekend:
Full race experience complete with practice, qualifiers and 20-car racing. Choose from a variety of classes and legendary race tracks.

Call out for Brighton-made VR projects!
GOVR is joining the Brighton Game Collective's Industry Drinks at the Hare and Hound. We'll be demoing VR games and experiences made by local developers! Join us to play VR for free and enjoy a drink with people from Brighton's game industry.
If you have a VR project you are working on and want to demo at this event, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're not a developer but want to give VR a go, this will be a great early access opportunity to be play upcoming VR games for free!
GOVR will be bringing along VR headsets (HTC Vive and/or Oculus Rift depending on developers' requirements) that you can use to demo your work to people attending the event as well as to members of the public.
There is no charge to demo your work. The VR headsets will be free to play for all.
Both the industry drinks run by the Brighton Game Collective as well as GOVR's playareas are free entry. To give us a better idea about the number of people interested in playing VR for free and to make sure you get plenty of time on a headset, please book a free ticket: https://vrshowandtell.eventbrite.co.uk/
