Set Year Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1993 Contents: Mains Power Pack Included.
MegaSound hand throttles each require 2 x Ever Ready HP7 batteries (not supplied). The batteries are required to provide the sound. They are not needed to operate the cars.
The fastest production car in the world challenges the Italian giant of road cars in this new MegaSound set from Scalextric.
The beautiful Jaguar XJ220 decked out in racing livery comes bumper to bumper with the equally "war painted" Ferrari F40. It is a race that will last for many laps where there can only be one winner. Will the Jaguar be all supreme or can the Ferrari reclaim the crown?
Each vehicle is modelled to a very high standard which is in keeping with cars of this calibre. They both have fitted head, tail and brakelights as well as Magnatraction.
The circuit is designed to challenge both cars and drivers with its banked and flat curves. Built for-speed the track layout provides equal distance for both cars so winning is entirely up to the drivers skill and their respective cars.
Add to all this MegaSound hand throttles connected to the new Power Base and you have all the excitement of Endurance Racing right in your front room.
May the best car win.
1994 Contents: Power Base and mains transformer Included. MegaSound hand throttles require 2 x Ever Ready LR6 batteries (not supplied). The batteries are required to provide the sound. They are not needed to operate the cars.
The cars and circuit in this set help to recreate the rigours and challenges of endurance racing. The Jaguar XJ220 and the Ferrari F40 are more than a match for each other as they battle it out on nearly 20 feet of race track. Can the Ferrari, with its headlights blazing, fend off the challenge from the metallic blue Jaguar? 'Brakelights on both cars light up as they approach the first bend, and aided by the race proven Magnatraction, fitted to both cars, they hold their own racing line.' Tail lights are standard equipment for both cars, as is the fast change Easi-Fit guide blade assembly.
But the fun does not stop there. This set includes the fabulous MegaSound hand throttles with their evocative sounds of racing. The Jaguar Challenge - Racing at its best.
1995 CONTENTS: Power Base and mains transformer included. MegaSound hand throttles require 2 x Ever Ready LR6 batteries (not supplied). The batteries are required to provide tine sound. They are not needed to operate the cars.
Jaguar and Ferrari two great names in one great set.
Both the Jaguar XJ220 and the Ferrari F40 are fully equipped for endurance racing. Headlights, brakelights and tail lights are standard to each, and so too are the Easi-Fit guide blades. Also fitted to both vehicles is the all important Magnatraction feature, so necessary for improved ground effect.
The long straight accommodates the Power Base where the wonderfully atmospheric MegaSound hand throttles are connected. The straight culminates with a banked corner so that maximum speed can be achieved, but early braking is recommended, otherwise disaster will strike.
1996 Contents: Power Base and mains transformer included. MegaSound hand throttles require 2 x Ever Ready IR6 batteries (not supplied). The batteries are required to provide the sound. They are not needed to operate the cars.
The world famous 24 hour endurance race held in Northern France forms the basis of this set. Every summer the elite of the various classes of Endurance racing come together for the ultimate battle of the giants. Group C are always well represented and two of the top class Group C teams are the main protagonists in this super Scalextric set.
Both the Porsche 962C and the Sauber Mercedes are equipped with brakelights as well as headlights, so as day gives way to night, racing can continue without let-up. The replacement of pick-up braids as the race progresses is a simple task taking only seconds before the cars are back on the track. Magnatraction is a feature of each car which improves their ground effect. However, be warned, it is no substitute for controlled driving, as the over zealous can quickly crash out of the race.
The fabulously evocative MegaSound hand throttles add to the excitement. Each throttle has a built-in speaker from which the noise of a car being started, idling and racing through the gears can be heard, which all adds to the racing atmosphere.
A quantity of track wedges are provided so that banking can be incorporated into the circuit for even faster laps.
