Year Information: The Scalextric rally range has been carefully selected to include all the variety of real motor racing. The true life versions of these models can be seen participating in major events all over the world. Included within such events are endurance races e.g. Le Mans, Production Saloon Car Races, Touring Car Races and World Rally Championships.
Generally speaking rallying cars can be classified within one of five groups depending on the type of car and/or what modifications have subsequently taken place. The cars are classified in order to provide fair competition within each group.
In one of these groups, and racing in the RAC British Sallon Car Championships a new contender during 1980 arose in the form of the Rover 3500. This new model from Scalextric has been seen in events throughout the country competing against Ford Capris, BMW's and other similar high performance saloon cars. Hold your own saloon car championship and see just how fast this new model really is.
