Set Year Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1982 This neat oval track circuit includes chicane curves and track borders. Combined with the turn around action of the two Banger Minis it provides fun and excitement for both competitors and spectators alike.
One of the fastest growing spectator sports in the country Banger Racing is becoming more and more popular. Many circuits provide action and amusement for the crowds as drivers race around the course in their battered machines.
The objective is to complete a set number of laps before your opponent. This is achieved by various means including both straight racing and crashing into other vehicles in an attempt to hinder the progress or eliminate them completely. The Scalextric Banger Set contains 14 pieces of track, together with 8 track borders. The cars Mad Hatter and Mini Ha Ha are decorated as typical bangers and feature the turnaround action that allows them to spin and race back in the opposite direction whilst cornering on flat curves. Standard hand throttles are used thus allowing other conventional cars to be added to the circuit later on. An Aeromotors hanger tunnel is also included in the set to provide additional excitement. Stop inside the tunnel and if your opponent is not concentrating he may fail to recall the direction in which you are facing and you will have the opportunity to catch him unawares. These features combine to make this an ideal starting set to begin Scalextric racing.
