Testimonials

Our links with motorsport have resulted in the GamePod range being the BEST range of game seats on the market today!

Developed in conjunction with professional racing drivers the GamePod has been designed to replicate the authentic driving position of today’s race cars.

Like today’s modern race car, all GamePod’s are manufactured using only the highest quality materials and components, which are manufactured here in the UK.

We believe the GamePod range is simply the best range of games console furniture on the market. But don’t just take our word for it, have a read of what the professional race drivers think about the Game Pod range.

Quotes from the Press

It is not just the racing drivers who think our GamePod range is something special. Below is a selection of quotes from the motorsport and gaming press.

Jason BradburyJason Bradbury

“Certainly one of the most realistic I have tested

GamePod is by far the best driving simulation rig out there. I don't know what it says about me, but I've tried them all - including designing and building six virtual car set-ups for the Renault Forumla 1 roadshow; I only wish I'd known about GamePod sooner.

The chair is the real deal, its high quality powder coated metal framework gives you the kind of rigidity you need for a solid steering wheel assembly; and the supplied wheel is tough and responsive.

I take my simulation seriously: I've had a fully hydraulic flight chair in my time, a miniature sit-in car and a five screen 747 simulator and GamePod is up there with the best of them. And when it came to challenging ex F1 driver and Le Mans veteran Tiff Needel on Gran Tourismo, I made sure I had my weapon of choice to hand... GamePod”

TV presenter – Channel 5’s The Gadget Show

Customer Feedback

“Very impressed with the attention to detail and overall quality of your GamePod. What a great product. I definitely made the right choice.”
D Adams, Birmingham

“Hi, Ash. Just wanted to say got my GamePod today and it has more than met my expectations. My girlfriend told me that I was not allowed to have it in the lounge, but now she has seen it, she loves it as much as me and it now takes pride and place in our lounge. I think we are going to buy another one so we can race each other. Keep up the good work.”
K Mitchell, Leeds

“I just wanted to say that I love the GamePod and it has totally transformed my driving sim experience. I have posted good feedback on the driving sim forum sites I am a member of. How did I ever get on without it? Many thanks.”
A Ford, Northumberland

“The Gamepod is a Totally Awesome bit of kit and the bucket seat fits me great. Build quality is fantastic and it is also very very solid. I have fitted my G25 wheel to it and it totally rocks. This is definitely the BIG DADDY of racing simulator seats!!! Keep up the good work Ash.”
C Manders, W midlands

“Dear Gamepod Team. I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know how pleased we are with our GamePod purchase. We bought it for our son for his birthday and it was worth every penny just to see his face. My husband built it up the night before and found it very simple to build. We looked at a number of similar products and although yours was not the cheapest (and not the dearest) we are more than happy that this was money well spent. The build quality and construction is first class and is very solid. And we are very pleased that we chose your product. So just wanted to pass this on as it is not very often these days we compliment people. Keep up the good work.”
S Daniels, Scotland

“What a fantastic game seating furniture. More better than I expected. I am very pleased with purchase.”
F Deveraulx, France

“I have now received my Gamepod as described and in Kit Form. I like assembling things in Kit Form (sad for an Adult in his seventies) but I think the Gamepod has beaten the lot. I have to say I wasn't expecting something so robust and well made. Of course you described it as such but even so it excelled my expectations. It is a great product and now I have it installed it looks great and will be the envy of all my sporting /computer game playing type colleagues. I describe it as having a Ferrari in my computer room. A considerable amount of thought must have gone into the product and you can be proud of the end result. Yours impressed.” 
M Bird, Lincs

“Hi guys. GamePod has arrived. Many thanks for sorting out Saturday AM delivery. Just wanted to say the GamePod looks fantastic. It is so well made and you can tell it has been designed by a proper designer as the attention to detail is superb. Good work.”
G Hall, Northampton

“The Gamepod GT2 is now set up with my G25 wheel, gearshift and pedals. And can report that I am very very very happy with it. It is so solid and well made but above all it just totally looks the part. My mates have cheaper race seats and they are all jealous of my new Gamepod GT2. So hopefully you will get more sales from my mates.”
R Harper, Lincs

“GamePOD has arrived. Now built and it is absolutely fantastic. Delivery took 10 days to get to Spain (due to Spanish holidays) but was definitely worth the wait. Have several Ex-Pat friends who are now interested in buying one.”
D Gibbs, Spain

“Hey Ash and Team. Just wanted to say the Gamepods have arrived and been assembled. They look awesome sitting next to each other and are now linked so can race each other. I am glad I found you guys. Will keep in touch and send you pics.”
G Brendon, USA

“Very solid. Great build quality. Looks amazing. Definitely the best game seat on the market, and you can quote me on that.”
D Lett, Northants

“Hi Lee. Many thanks for sorting me out the seat upgrade to the Monaco seat. The gamepod with the Monaco seat just looks absolutely fantastic! It now takes pride and place in my games room. Have passed on your details onto my gaming mates for you, so I wouldn’t be surprised if you get more sales from this.”
C Watson, Notts

“Great product. Great service. Delivered when you said. Frame is very solid and well made. It looks amazing. Keep up the good work.”
C Maldon, Notts

“Delivery received and seat assembled – WOW!!!! You will definitely get more orders as all my mates love it”
W Hatton-Jones, Poland

Hi Guys, Just wanted to let you know the Gamepod has arrived and it looks amazing. Everything is so well thought out and I can see why it cost the money it did now. Was thinking that it was a bit expensive for what it was, but I am now thinking it was money well spent and definitely worth it.”
G Harris, London

“Gamepod arrived and built. Frame is very strong and solid and works great with the G25 wheel. I like the fact you can bolt the wheel and pedals down so there is no movement when playing. Top marks!”
D Williams, Surrey
