After what feels like a very short amount of time, the Scalextric 2023 range announcement was upon us once more. Scalextric have really upped their game for this year with a huge number of cars scheduled for release. Overall, the new range has been well received by the customer base, although sceptics would note that some of the 2022 cars have still not been released, so will we actually see all the proposed new cars this year?
With another year flying by, it gets harder and harder to keep up with the new releases. In fact, we have not even purchased the cars we wanted to get from 2021, so the fact that Scalextric are also running late with their release schedule is helping us.
Another year has passed and Scalextric have released their 2021 range already. Not bad when you consider the world has gone through a pandemic and the wheels of manufacturing still seem to be turning and keeping to schedule.
Today, we are pleased to receive the Volkswagen BTCC car of Bobby Thompson.
Yesterday, Scalextric announced their new releases for the upcoming year. So how did our predictions fare and will we be happy racers this year? Read on and find out all about the new range.
It has been a mixed year for Slot Car Club in 2019, as progress was made and a circuit saw the light of day (well the light in the garage) until the flood of 2019 washed it all away. Off track the collection has grown, with the addition of some lovely BTCC cars and a couple of new F1’s.
We have recently added two more Scalextric cars to our F1 stable, which will be classed as the British American Racing team (BAR). They will use the Earth car which was raced by Jensen Button and Rubens Barrichello in 2007.
We have added to our BTCC collection with the Blue/orange Dual liveried MG of Rory Butcher.
Pre-season testing for Slot Car Club’s 2019 season was affected by the heavy rain forecast last Monday as SlotCarClub found itself 5 inches under water.
We were greeted by a fantastic surprise today when the brand new Harrods McLaren F1 GTR was delivered.
