Year Information: 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.
