BTCC Chris Smiley Pirtek Honda Civic breaks cover

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.

This car was definitely not at the top of our ‘wanted’ list of BTCC cars, although we still appreciate every car that gets released. We have to applaud Scalextric that even though the BTC Racing teams cars are not the most colourful, they have made a good effort with this car. They have managed to find a livery that had some bright colours on the roof and it really makes the car a lot more impressive. There is also a mixture of logos across the doors and bonnet which takes the attention away from the dull grey

As usual, it came with blank tyres with no logos, so we immediately set about putting some proper Dunlop tyres on the car. We are looking forward to racing this one. It will be interesting to see how it matches up against the other Civis in our collection.
