Item Year Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1991 The worldwide coverage of Formula 1 racing on television has opened up tho spectacle and sound to every home.
Scalextric reproduces the top cars in immaculate detail for you to study and admire. Then you can race them yourself and find out what it is all about.
The cars featuring Magnatraction are well matched in specification. It is up to you to become the champion by superior racing skill and judgement.
1992 Millions of televisions all around the world are switched on virtually every other Sunday, during the season, to have their screens filled with brightly coloured Formula One cars. The TV speakers vibrate with the sounds of powerful engines as the cars reach maximum revs on the Startline after the warm-up lap.
The lights change from red to green and they're off. The cars 'scream' away heading for the first bend, the drivers jockeying for position!
The Scalextric Formula One cars ore superb models representing many of the top constructors teams.
Many of the cars feature Magnatraction like the new Ferrari F1, whereas the Williams and lotus are also fitted with 'Turboflash', simulating the excess fuel being burnt off as the cars decelerate.
So it is up to you to choose your car and race, to be the winner.
1993 For the first time in over a decade and a half the World of Formula One racing has a British World Champion, Nigel Mansell. The chemistry between himself and the reliable Williams car was all domineering. His racing exploits up to and during the 1992 Hungarian Grand Prix kept all who watched that superb race on the edge of their seats. He is a truly remarkable driver and a worthy champion.
The Formula One drivers of tomorrow need not wait for the chance to drive these thoroughbreds of the circuit. Their chance can come the moment that they pick up a Scalextric hand throttle. Each Scalextric Formula One car is finely tuned to give the driver optimum performance. The majority of them are fitted with Magnatraction to give super roadholding but the ‘Red 5’ Williams also incorporates Turbo flash which creates the illusion of excess fuel being burnt off in the exhaust with a quick flash of light from an LED positioned at the rear of the car.
The superb detail can be seen on all the cars highlighted by the careful spraying and printing of sponsorship logos. This is shown to its fullest on the new Minardi F1 and of course on the Williams.
