Hi all,

We should shortly be hearing news of what Scalextric has to offer in 2022. What are you hoping they announce?

I think if you pay attention to the Advent Calendar, particularly todays you may see some clues......

And the delays have not affected new tooling. Reliveries yes, but not new tooling items :)

I'm still waiting for the Esprits I pre ordered for 2021. Doesn't look like they'll be forthcoming this year.

So based on the advent calendar, we're getting a new BTCC car with Jade Edwards livery then

1. The revival of Scalextric's "Race-Tuned" sub-brand. A modern version of it, with cars fitted with decent wheels and bearings as a minimum. Slot.it, NSR, Scaleauto, Sideways, Thunderslot and others have shown that there's a market for it and that plenty of people are prepared to pay £55+ for a decent slot car.

2. An announcement that the person responsible for the spelling and punctuation errors in this year's advent calendar has been sent back to school, and that someone will proofread the remainder of the calendar before more windows are opened. Seven days down and three errors so far. That dreadful lack of attention to detail perfectly sums up the current Scalextric.

No chance of race tuned cars. I know how many the race pro cars manufacturers make, and with us for our margins etc, it just doesn't work out. But, as said before, we are working to make our cars handle better and perform better.

I shall speak to the online team regarding the written word!

But i am sure some of you will be delighted on Jan 10th, others less so, but thats life! Sadly still no Chevron B8 yet for me, so il join those patiently waiting. Expect more teasers (or teazers, or malteasers) on the advent calendar

Agree with you about the Chevron B8 , as a youngster reading his weekly fix of Motoring News it was one of my favourite race cars.

It would be awesome if you could do the GPX Racing Porsche, but given Porsche being a stickler for the correct model with the correct livery, it would mean that you would have to do the Porsche GT3R. I am all for that, as there are so many great liveries for that model.



You could also do the "Grello" Porsche...




Simon, I have to say, the improvements that Scalextric has made to their cars in the past few years have resulted in some much better running cars. On my home track I simply change out the tires and they run pretty well. I'm sure that people who run at clubs have a much different opinion, but that is definitely not your key audience anyway.

Keep up the good work.
