Set Year Information

1995 CONTENTS: Power Base and mains transformer included. Pole Position Control Centre requires 3 x 'AA' batteries (Not supplied).
In the real world of Formula One it has become more and more important for a driver to achieve the fastest lap time during the practice days before a Grand Prix. If a driver can do this they will have 'Pole Position’ on the start line, which in turn means that the advantage of having the all important racing line will be theirs.
Now for the first time in Scalextric history, the new Formula One set can recreate the complete drama of a Grand Prix weekend with the help of the Pole Position Control Centre. This Clever piece of equipment conceals a multitude of features and splits the racing excitement into two modes.
1996 Contents: Power Bose and mains transformer included. Polo Position Control Sound Centre requires 3 x 'AA' batteries (not supplied).
In recent years it has become very important to gain Pole Position at a Grand Prix. This is because most modern circuits have been constructed to make it increasingly difficult for cars to pass each other. This fact is also exacerbated by the cars in the leading teams being more evenly matched than ever before. The advantage therefore of having 'pole’ is that the leader always has the racing line which, in turn, means that whoever wants to pass them has to race harder and faster than the car in front.
