Scalextric launches new multi-car lane changing app

Published on: 19th September 2013

Scalextric, owned by Hornby Hobbies, will this week launch a new and improved free Scalextric app named Scalextric Digital.Scalextric-App300

The Scalextric Digital app can be downloaded via the Apple Store and has a multi-car feature which allows players to race up to four cars at any one time. Players will experience real-life racing whilst being able to manoeuvre around a customised track at break-neck speeds. Players can change lanes to overtake opponents and block rivals, as well as comparing their statistics with fellow players.

The app is free, and players can upgrade for 69p which gives them more tracks, custom circuits and full access to an interactive ‘workshop’ where they can share, play and rate circuits with other racers.

Scalextric has worked with Rocket Licensing and produced this new app with developer Sabec Limited.

Dale Luckhurst, Scalextric marketing manager, said: “We are extremely pleased with this new app. Scalextric Digital takes players’ driving skills to the limit and gives fans of the brand Scalextric action on the go. It’s incredibly realistic and we’re certain Scalextric fans will love it.”

The new Scalextric is now available at Apple’s app store and soon on the Android platform.
