Catalogue Number: C.538
Year Information: Scalextric 500
The Scalextric 500 is the most exciting of the range of Scalextric sets. Running length totals a fantastic 28 feet and the track can be laid out in three different ways to offer tremendous variety. Included in the set is the Scalextric lap recorder which automatically records and displays the number of laps each car completes as racing progresses. For excitement on the track the 500 includes both a pair of crossover tracks and the chicane set. The 500 is the ultimate in Scalextric racing sets, but, with so much equipment contained in the set it is also the most economical way to buy a large layout.
Contents:

The Scalextric 500 Export (C.539) does not contain the power pack.
By placing two hump bridges or two skid chicanes next to each other a very interesting and novel section of track is created which is great fun to drive over and parallels situations which exist in the real motor racing world. Alternatively, you can experiment with the extension package by placing hump bridges and skid chicanes anywhere on the circuits.
