Set Year Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1981 FORMULA 1
2 Super-fast cars and a testing layout, offer all the thrills and spills of World Championship racing.
All the thrills and excitement of World Championship Formula 1 racing can be captured and recreated with this superfast circuit. Together with the turbo charged Elf Renault and the 6 wheel March Ford cars this set contains approximately 21 feet of track including high speed banking at one end, a skid chicane and a flyover bridge. The basic circuit is a figure 8 shape which gives both cars the advantage of an inside lane at one of the bends.
CIRCUIT LAYOUT
Approximate Size: 297cm x 100cm (99" x 33").
1982 The Skid chicane included within the 21-foot circuit of the Formula 1 Set makes careful driving on this layout an absolute must. An up-and-over extended figure of 8 circuit offers both banked and flat curves and the two well detailed super formula cars make this a fast and exciting set to race with.
The 6-wheel March Ford and the turbo charged Elf Renault are well matched competitors in any Scalextric Formula 1 championship and are supplied completely decorated in their full racing livery.
A hazardous circuit consisting of 22 pieces of track and making a circuit length of over 21 feet provides fast straights and the inclusion of the two sorts of curves both banked and flat means that extra driving skills will be required. A skid chicane and tight bends will put any competitors abilities to the test. On real racetracks around the world Formula 1 cars can achieve speeds of about 185m.p.h. along the fast straights and on some circuits can average approximately 140 m.p.h. Scalextric Super Formula cars as included in this set can achieve similar scale speeds and a speed calculator is included in this set to enable the drivers to monitor their performance and see how they compare with world championship drivers.
