> Scalextric News - ARC AIR & BTCC Updates
Posted by JEXY1 - 5-02-16 17:33 - 18 comments

News from Scalextric;

Test Track is back following its recap of 2015 right at the start of the year. In this edition, the focus is on ARC AIR with the Powerbase release only hours away. There’s also a number of images showing off the latest developmental work from a number of popular releases due in 2016 – be sure to let us know what you think!


Last year we launched our revolutionary slot car system, ARC ONE, allowing you to wirelessly create and manage races with a smart device and the ARC app.

Now we take App Race Control to the next level with the launch of ARC AIR. It has all of the features of the original ARC ONE system with exciting new features such as wireless controllers, plus new app features such as weather conditions and race incidents.

Just plug the Powerbase into any analogue Scalextric set, download the ARC app and you're ready to race!

For a more in depth look at the system take a look at the latest Scalextric Test Track Blog

BTCC Development

Also sent to us today is an update on some of the BTCC cars;

As always the Development team have been hard at work and we’ve got a number of updates to show you on some cars you may be interested in. In fact, we’ve got loads but rather than bombard you with everything we’ll try to spread out some of the updates as we hit our development milestones.

Here we have three of the upcoming BTCC cars that I know we’re all buzzing with excitement about. The Honda Civic Type R (C3783), VW Passat (C3737) and MG6 (C3736) are popular members of the BTCC and we think you’ll be pleased with the images below. We always need to stress that these aren’t fully finished examples but we’re very happy with them none the less.

> NSR News - Latest Ford GT40 and Renault Clio
Posted by JEXY1 - 5-02-16 17:07 - 8 comments

News from NSR;

Two new NSR releases due this month are the classic GT40 MkII 1966 Le Mans Test car and the welcome return of the Renault Clio.

Ford GT40 MkII
Le Mans Test 1966
Ken Miles
Ref; NSR0008SW
Retail £69.95

The GT40 was used at the Le Mans Test day during the Month of April in 1966 and although the model has Ken Miles listed as the driver, the Holman and Moody prepared Ford was also driven by amongst others, Bruce McLaren, Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart! I think the car looks stunning in its original white and black finish. This is before the Ford hierarchy decided to throw out the tradition of running cars in their nations colours (the US being white), and bringing their factory MkII's to the race in June in 8 different bright colours.

Renault Clio Sport
Piet Mondrian edition
Ref; NSR0009AW (NSR0009iL & NSR0009SW also available to order)
Retail £69.95

This cheeky looking car is the first Renault Clio offered for a while and is based on the artwork of the Dutch modernist artist Piet Mondrian. Although listed above as an angle-winder (AW) the Renault will also be offered in in-line (iL) and side-winder (SW) chassis configurations as well.
