Just had this delivered to the office as we're doing a few events around the Scalextric World Championship - tracks not as big as I thought it would be, but still fun smile



I used to be a Scalextric nut when I was a kid. Was always rather let down by my dad as he didn't convert the loft into my own personal den with rafter to rafter scalextric track.

Direct from the distributor as we're working with them.

The only retail place I've seen them in is the shop in Ibn Battuta that does all the motor sport memorabilia, books etc... up by the cinema end.

I'll find out where else if you'd like?

That's a great idea for getting no work done in the office!

Instead of racers, I prefer something that corners with a bit more drama...
