Especially built for us by the original factory in Northern Ireland, we have 10 Crosslé 90F single seaters that have been recreated and modernized for us, based on their 1969 Crosslé 16F.
A characterful lounge with chesterfields, a welcoming bar, vintage racing memorabilia, everything feet away from the track to transport you to a 100% retro atmosphere, one you won’t find anywhere else in the world.
A racing school for every level of driving. Our single seaters might look vintage, but their ’60s look are deceiving: They are more spacious, safer and more driver friendly than the 1969 original, being able to accomodate all levels of driving and sizes.
Your driving equipment is waiting for you in your dedicated locker. FIA homologated, this vintage themed racing equipment will keep you confortable, while looking positively sixties.
