After serving in the RAF for 10 years as a Physical Training Instructor, Conrad went on to complete a Sports Therapy course based at one of the Oxford Colleges, he graduated as a Fitness Consultant and Remedial Therapist, with the aim of enabling sports enthusiasts of all levels to achieve their goals.

In late 2006 Conrad started working with a local Cornish Racing Driver after a near career ending accident, to build up his strength and endurance through the use of specific exercises and therapy work on his back and neck, going onto work with a ELMS team (LMP2 car prototype). This lead onto working at the great Le Mans 24hr race (the pinnacle of the endurance racing) 3 times looking after 3 drivers for the duration of the race catering to dietary and hydration requirements, also neck and lower back issues that occur during driving for such long periods of time, as well as working at Monza, Bahrain, and a number of the circuits around the UK.

Conrad in his career has worked with a number of racing teams from Formula Ford to Le Mans series drivers and pretty much every series in between.

FAQ's

Got a question?

Our simulator boasts state of the art performance hardware and software, the likes you will see the professionals training and racing on around the World.

> What is Sim Racing?

Sim racing is the closest experience to motorsport racing you can get with comparatively low costs and very low risk. Race any track and any car from the comfort and safety of a virtual environment. If you crash just reset and try again.

> Will sim racing make me faster on the track?

Using a simulator will probably help with your overall speed, however taking advantage of our in house performance coaches certainly will improve your lap times on the track.

> Can I bring someone with me?

You are welcome to bring a friend or family member with you. If you have a race team/engineer we can provide a space for them enabling a comprehensive analysis of your session.

> Can I use the simulator if I am not a pro driver?

Absolutely. You never know you may find a talent that needs taking to the next level.

> What do I need to bring with me on the day?

If you have race gloves and shoes these are a must for those of you who expect to be putting in the fastest laps. If you don’t and would like to purchase gloves we will have them for you to buy on the day. Trainers are adequate if you are only out for a fun day of racing.

> What are your booking terms and conditions?

Once a session has been booked and paid for our cancellation policy is as follows:
Cancellation up to one week before the session 75% of the payment will be refunded.Cancellation up to two days before the session 50% of the payment will be refunded.If you have to cancel the day before your session 100% of your session cost will be charged.Some people who suffer from motion sickness may find the simulator causes this to occur.We recommend taking a travel sickness tablet two hours before your session if this is the case.Refunds cannot be given in circumstances of travel sickness symptoms on the day.

> How does it compare to the real thing?

Sim racing is the next best thing to actually driving a race car in real life. You’ll need all the physical and mental techniques professionals use during a race, such as trail-braking, heel-and-toe pedal work to finding the racing line of a circuit. The sim uses state of the art hardware creating a true feel of a real race car. From the bucket seat through to the force feedback steering wheel and hydraulic pedals you will feel as close to the real thing as you can get.

Triple wrap around screens surround you as you race, and with the addition of a VR headset, you will feel more immersed than ever before.
