Scalextric supported the slot car event as headline sponsor for the third year in a row, at the British Motor Museum.
Visitors were invited to compete for the fastest lap on the newly launched Scalextric ARC AIR layout, which adds an interactive dimension to racing. There were over 100 entries, with Jamie Pleasance clocking the fastest time on Saturday with 0.59 seconds and Josh Howley managing an impressive 0.49 seconds on Sunday.
The state-of-the-art ARC AIR gameplay features presented drivers with the option of recreating adverse weather conditions and race incidents with the added ease of wireless controllers. Cars can be calibrated with the free downloadable ARC app to take full advantage of the features.
As in previous years, there was a meet and greet on the Scalextric stand where enthusiasts discovered the company’s new products for 2016.
