Vernon gave the App race control system a test drive, completing several laps of the track as he pitted his racing skills against those of the Hornby Scalextric team.

Vernon explained he used to play Scalextric when he was younger, and was keen to have a go having kept many of his old sets in his attic at home. This was the first time he had seen the new ARC One which allows users to wirelessly create and manage races including elements like tyre wear and fuel loading using a handheld smart device.
