Year Information: Six wheel racing cars have attracted tremendous attention and interest over the last few seasons and is is fitting that a six wheeler should be included in the Scalextric range. The theory of the six wheel March was that on conventional racing cars large wheels at the back of the car disturb air flow around the rear of the car and create 'drag'. However, to reduce them in size would mean less surface in contact with the track and a corresponding reduction in road holding and car control. March did reduce the wheels in size and compensated for the loss in tyre surface area by having four rear wheels instead of two!
