Most people remember Scalextric slot cars as those cool racing track cars in the form of the latest Formula 1 car or saloon racers in the United Kingdom and Australia. Kids thought this was the neatest thing and rushed home from school just to speed through the homework to have a go at it with their friends.
They actually did a great job in changing with the times and adapting to what kids want. They have actually started a renaissance. There are many people who were only lads when they started with two mini coopers and a track their father fastened to a wooden table that could be folded and hung on a wall when not in use that still have them today.
They have become a gift of great memories to hand down from generation to generation. Scalextric slot cars show no sign of slowing down!
