Category Details: Scalextric sets from all eras.
Year: 1982
Catalogue Number: C.660
Year Information: With the up-and-over figure of 8 circuit. Scalextric High Speed Banking bends and two high performance racing cars the Grand Prix set offers any would be racing driver a flying start into the world of model motor racing.
The real world of Grand Prix racing centres around ultra fast top performance cars reaching speeds of around 185m.p.h. on some sections of the racetrack. This sort of performance has to be achieved lap after lap if the car and driver are to have any hopes of winning a Grand Prix.
Continuous high speed running is just what this Scalextric set was designed for. The figure of eight layout ensures that both cars have racing lanes of equal length and with the banked curves at either end these cars can really be put through their paces. The dark blue Wolf WR5 and the red Brabham BT44B are typical of the highly engineered cars that can be seen in real motor racing.
A detailed transfer sheet is provided to enable additional decoration to be included on each car. This gives each driver the opportunity of adding his own personal touch to the presentation of the car at the start of the race. A speed computer is also included to enable each car's real scale speed to be calculated. Each competitors performance can thus be compared with that of today's world class racing drivers.
