Catalogue Number: C.536
Year Information: Scalextric 400
The Scalextric 400 offers a super length racing circuit of 21 feet with two top class Super Formula Racing Cars. Lotus are perhaps the most successful of all the world championship racing teams and it is fitting that a Lotus model is included in our popular Scalextric 400 set. The second car offers the unique excitement of Scalextric racing on six wheels which has grown tremendously popular since the Scalextric six wheel March Ford was first introduced in 1978. The basic circuit is a figure 8 shape which gives both cars the advantage of an inside lane at one of the bends. High speed banking curves are included as well as skill testing flat curves and also the fearsome skid chicane to heighten the tension and drama.
