Starting Your First Scalextric Set

If you have a need for speed, Scalextric sets are a fun way to get your fix! Whether you’re a budding F1 or rally driver, there’s a set and vehicles to suit all your requirements.

The best way to start is to get a complete set, that is track, cars and controllers, and there is a wide variety to choose from, depending on whether you want your vehicles to be replicas of vintage or modern racing cars or perhaps you’d like some of the fantasy sets so you race your favourite superheroes and villains!

Whichever you choose, most sets include an oval or figure of eight track which can be expanded by the addition of extra track pieces, available in packs. These can be simple straights and curves or even four-way crossings – race your opponent to be the first to cross without crashing into each other!

The great thing about Scalextric is the huge variety of vehicles you can add to your set beyond what comes in the box – choose from famous rally or F1 cars, or the vehicles based on those used in your favourite films and TV shows!

There are also junior versions of Scalextric for younger racers which are a little easier to use.

Whichever set or vehicles you decide on, we can offer advice in store and online.
