Jaguar Challenge Set

Item: Jaguar Challenge Set (Overall Item page)
Information: ---
Category: Sets
Category Details: Scalextric sets from all eras.
Year: 1996
Catalogue Number: C.707
Year Information: Contents: Power Base and mains transformer included. MegaSound hand throttles require 2 x Ever Ready IR6 batteries (not supplied). The batteries are required to provide the sound. They are not needed to operate the cars.
The world famous 24 hour endurance race held in Northern France forms the basis of this set. Every summer the elite of the various classes of Endurance racing come together for the ultimate battle of the giants. Group C are always well represented and two of the top class Group C teams are the main protagonists in this super Scalextric set.
Both the Porsche 962C and the Sauber Mercedes are equipped with brakelights as well as headlights, so as day gives way to night, racing can continue without let-up. The replacement of pick-up braids as the race progresses is a simple task taking only seconds before the cars are back on the track. Magnatraction is a feature of each car which improves their ground effect. However, be warned, it is no substitute for controlled driving, as the over zealous can quickly crash out of the race.
The fabulously evocative MegaSound hand throttles add to the excitement. Each throttle has a built-in speaker from which the noise of a car being started, idling and racing through the gears can be heard, which all adds to the racing atmosphere.
A quantity of track wedges are provided so that banking can be incorporated into the circuit for even faster laps.
