Year Information: The R.A.C. British Saloon Car Championships have resulted in some fine performances being achieved over the past few seasons from the 3500 V8 Rovers. Two of the leading contenders during this series, the Triplex and PMG sponsored cars have been included in this set. The highly detailed and authentic decoration on these models can be added to at the drivers discretion by the transfer sheet also included. In any saloon car event the handling of the vehicle is critical and these two Scalextric models have been designed to display the superb roadholding characteristics necessary for such special competition cars. The 16 feet of track includes the skill testing change-over track (2 pieces) thus ensuring that both lanes are of the same length and that neither of the drivers has an unseen advantage.
With flat curves at either end of this racetrack the driver's cornering skills are tested to the limit.
