Orb Retro Handheld Console

This tiny console packs more than 150 games, with a couple of racing ones in there too. Styled on the Nintendo Gameboy, this console is even smaller and actually will fit in your pocket. An easy way to take yourself back to the early 1990s and the dawn of handheld gaming.

From £17.99 – I Want One Of Those

Citroën Bluetooth speaker

Citroën’s shop is packed full of stylish, practical products that subtly carry the two chevrons. This speaker is one of those products. Powered by a lithium battery, it’s Bluetooth and portable enough to take on a picnic or provide a soundtrack to your 2CV road trip.

From €59 – Citroën

Hudson Sport Bluetooth Earphones

Bluetooth earphones

These wireless earphones have been endorsed by our staff photographer, Lyndon McNeil, who swears by them. They’re sweat-resistant, and its in-built controls allow you to pause the music. The cord is tangle-free, too, so there’s no faffing about trying to get your earphones out. 

From £27.99 – Kitsound

Forza Horizon 4

Forza Horizon 4

While we’re still hooked to Gran Turismo Sport in the office, staff writer Samarth Kanal can’t pry himself away from Forza Horizon 4. This PC/Xbox One game features hundreds of cars from the 1930 Bentley 4.5-litre to the new McLaren Senna, with miles and miles of rolling English countryside and the streets of Edinburgh too in an open-world setting. The best driving game of the year.

From £49.99 – Microsoft

HTC Vive Pro McLaren Headset

Alonso McLaren HTC Vive headset

Lando Norris called this McLaren-branded virtual reality headset an “incredibly exciting technology that brings fans closer to racing than ever before.” In a limited-edition McLaren paint scheme, it combines audio and high-resolution VR visuals to bring your favourite racing game to life. It’s also paired with the McLaren Garage VR Experience, and a version of simulator RFactor 2 that includes classic McLaren Formula 1 cars. And it’s not cheap…
