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.
During the recent Bank Holiday, we set about working on some new pit mechanics. As we will have quite a long pit road, we want lots of different coloured pit crew to fill up the pit lane and make it look really interesting and busy.
We were happy to recently receive the latest BTCC offering from Scalextric, in the form of C.4015 Honda Civic of Chris Smiley. It was even more fitting that just a few days later, the sister car won the first race of the 2019 season at Brands Hatch.
We were very surprised to see a new Scalextric release from the 2019 range had hit the shelves already when we noticed the latest BTCC car was available. Knowing how fast the previous Pirtek BMW flew off the shelves, we were quick to dip into the Slot Car Club wallet and get this car into our hands before it was out of stock.
Today we are pleased to see the new range for 2019 from Scalextric. So is it good news for our members at Slot Car Club or will it be another year of mid-table mediocrity for our racers? Read on and find out all about the new range.
