Item Year Information

1985 Designed exclusively for the world of sports car racing, the M1 was built in limited numbers for standard road use in order to qualify for racing events. The elegant lines of this performance car are faithfully reproduced on the model and the attractive black and gold livery make it an absolute must for the discerning Scalextric driver looking for that extra touch of style.
1986 The classic lean and hungry look of BMW sports cars is faithfully reproduced in this low, track-hugging model.
1987 The characteristic radiator grille ‘nostrils’ and badge of BMW (Bavarian Motor Works) will be found depicted on this handsome replica.
1989 All the Scalextric Rally Cars are fitted with a standard type motor, rear axle contrate drive gear and pick-up system.
However, they have different driving characteristics due to varying centres of gravity, wheel/tyre sizes, weight, wheel track etc.
Thus rallying with mixed car types will be as interesting as with real cars and, of course, the design of the track circuit will have an influence on the result.
1992 Rally cars tend to come in all shapes and sizes. Some are sponsored by large consortiums with professional drivers, others are private entries whose sponsorship relies heavily on the drivers local business acquaintances.
There are various types of rallies which are raced in all parts of the world. Some are raced over rough terrain, others on normal tarmac roads. Many of the lessons learned during these gruelling drives are later incorporated into the normal standard family saloon giving greater safety and reliability to the driving public at large.
The Scalextric Rally Cars shown are typical of the cars seen competing in all ports of the world.
