Year Information: This totally new Scalextric car is the latest development from Elf Team Tyrrell who are noted for their Grand Prix innovation and pioneering ideas. Ken Tyrrell began designing and constructing his own racing cares in 1970 and soon proved his skill when Jackie Stewart won the World Championship in 1971 and 1973. After pioneering six wheel racing in 1976 and 1977, Tyrrell returned to a conventional four wheel design in 1978 with the 008. The Tyrrell Team use computers to help design their cars and the 008 is the first car to carry electronic recording machines during practice sessions. The readings are then analysed by the computer.
