My simulator was - I thought - pretty much complete. At least, that's what I thought. Yet when I proudly shared my rig on my social channels the other day, I had to conclude that I was missing something. It didn't feel "finished. Fortunately, I knew what I was missing: a Speedy Rugs sim racing carpet ? My sim feels complete now and how incredibly happy I am with the end result! Check out the transition below and judge for yourself.
If you are active in the world of sim racing, you can't have failed to notice that many simulators feature these super cool carpets. I had to have these, I thought! And I don't regret that for a moment. The guys at Speedy Rug sent me one to test and asked me to write an honest review of their products.
Speedy Rugs: who are they and what do they do?
Speedy Rugs is a relatively young company from Germany. It is a company born out of pure passion: motorsports. The company specializes in selling high-quality and handmade sim racing carpets. With this, it offers people an easy way to bring motorsports into their homes. And of course, that includes your sim racing simulator!
Sim Racing 'Teppich'
Tobias and Fabian's young German company has gained notoriety mainly for their super cool sim racing 'Pit Lane' and Nürburgring carpets. All carpets, or 'Teppich' as it is so nicely called in German, are designed in Germany and produced in Belgium. With this they deliver high quality and varying styles, colors, patterns and sizes. Get inspired with the images below!

Speedy Rugs makes a variety of products:
- Sim racing carpets / mats
- Play mats
- PC mats
Material and quality
The carpets are designed in Germany and are thus characterized by "Deutsche gründlichkeit. In other words: good and solid quality. And it is. The material feels very fine, soft and comfortable. The carpet is quite thin, but that does not detract from the quality. The super nice designs give your simulator a fantastic look.
The carpets are all made in Belgium and consist of 100% polyamides. I had to look up exactly what this means myself, but this material ensures the highest quality and means that even after intensive use, the carpets will not show signs of wear. A sim racing mat from Speedy Rugs is therefore a sustainable investment. Some features:
- 100% polyamide, which feels like soft velour
- The back is made of rugged grip rubber
- Tested to the latest standards
- Oeko-Tex certified
- Suitable for underfloor heating (!)
- Easy to clean with warm water
- Fire resistance class: Cfl-s1 (flame-retardant)
The big advantage, the robust grippy rubber, is also directly the big disadvantage. It took me an enormous amount of effort to position my sim rig on this. My sim rig is quite heavy and not equipped with wheels. Therefore, this was a - frustrating - challenge. So make sure your Speedy Rugs sim racing carpet is positioned correctly right away. Sliding and shifting is tremendously difficult. Fortunately, the end result is and was more than worth it! ?
Maintenance and cleaning
I myself have no experience with it yet, but Speedy Rugs itself says that the carpet is easy to clean. For this you only need warm water. So do not use harsh cleaning agents. Regular vacuuming will keep the mat in top condition.
