Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

Stay safe, stay at home! There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Or come and get involved on our social media channels ...

Formula 1 Simulator

Formula 1 racing game, which is just as famous for it’s cover in Spectrum circles, recognised by most who knew the machine in contemporary times, with it’s dramatic depiction of a racing pile up. Certainly one of the best selling budget titles for the machine.

The game itself is a reasonable attempt at a cockpit eye view of the racing action, and other cars to race against.

This was a re release of Formula One by Spirit Software, and included a cardboard steering wheel, which had to be rolled on the top row of Keyes to steer the car. Of course it did not work, and did not last too long either.
