Item Year Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1979 This totally new Scalextric car is the latest development from Elf Team Tyrrell who are noted for their Grand Prix innovation and pioneering ideas. Ken Tyrrell began designing and constructing his own racing cares in 1970 and soon proved his skill when Jackie Stewart won the World Championship in 1971 and 1973. After pioneering six wheel racing in 1976 and 1977, Tyrrell returned to a conventional four wheel design in 1978 with the 008. The Tyrrell Team use computers to help design their cars and the 008 is the first car to carry electronic recording machines during practice sessions. The readings are then analysed by the computer.
1980 The real life ultra light 008 marked Tyrrells return to conventional 4 wheel design. In its first appearance at the 1978 Argentine Grand Prix Patrick Depailier drove the blue and white 008 into 3rd place before a crowd of 100,000. The 008 achieved championship points for its drivers on no less than 12 occasions during the 1978 World Championship including a 1st place in the Monaco Grand Prix. This eye catching model will make a fine addition to any collection.
1981 This car was the ninth design produced by the successful Tyrrell Racing Organisation. It achieved a fine 3rd place in its very first appearance at the Argentine Grand Prix in 1978 and later on a 1st place in the Monaco Grand Prix that same year.
1982 Produced by the Tyrrell Racing Organisation the 008 was the ninth design to be raced by the team. It was driven into 3rd place in its first outing at the Argentine Grand Prix in 1978 and subsequently achieved a fine win at Monaco in the same season.
This particular model from Scalextric is presented in the racing livery of the First National City Bank once Team Tyrrell's sponsors. The blue and white colours contrast well with the engine section at the rear. With good stability at higher speeds and great cornering abilities this model is often used by enthusiasts at club meetings thus proving itself a highly competitive car.
