Scalextric on the road for more 2019 brand experience events

Published on: 21st August 2019

Scalextric will be attending this year’s CarFest South, taking place from the 23rd-25th August. 

2019 has seen Scalextric bringing a brand experience to events across the UK and in France. In May, Scalextric showcased the 2019 range to 5,000 slot car enthusiasts at UK Slot Car Festival at the British Motor Museum. In June Scalextric attended the 24H LeMans race, where over 250,000 spectators experienced the buzz of endurance racing, and those with families visited and raced Scalextric in the Kids Zone.

Scalextric confirmed its attendance at this year’s North and South CarFest, the annual music and motoring festival held in Cheshire and Hampshire. Scalextric had a very successful time at CarFest North and expects CarFest South to be just as popular with families at the Festival.

Across the weekends Scalextric will be demonstrating an impressive layout for racers of all ages to play for free. It will feature a five-lap competition around a six metre Scalextric circuit, using wireless hand controllers and the Scalextric ARC race management system to count and time laps. Racers will have the chance to enter the fastest lap competition running all weekend, where the winning racer each day will be given a Scalextric set. For the younger racers, also on display at the festival will be My First Scalextric and the Micro Scalextric Justice League set, where children will have the chance to race as their favourite Caped Crusader or the Man of Steel.

Scalextric will also be live at Bluewater Shopping Centre, Kent, near Christmas where it will be demonstrating Scalextric and holding a competition to win a Scalextric set – just in time for Christmas. Find Scalextric in the Lower Rose Gallery opposite Eat on November 23rd and 24th, and December 7th and 8th.
