Does anyone know where I can buy a small lead that adapts the scalextric sports plug to the 3 pin plug that they use at club racing??

I have some proffesor controllers with sports plugs I need to keep these for my home track but would like be able to use them for the club track as well.

I need two of these so any links would be great.

Thanks
James

Matt Tucker's method is unbeatably practical.

But jimgym brings up a point I was going to make anyway.
Isn't it WAY past time that the 'standard' 3-pin club plug was replaced by a modern type that is readily available off the shelf instead of the obsolete and hard to find things still currently in use?

I got 10 plugs on eBay for £10.00 - 6 male and 4 female plugs.
There should be more of them out there!

just ask them for a 2amp mini 3 pin plug, none of the major places do them e.g b&q,wickes all them, you have to get them rom an electricals supplier, but seing as you require and adaptor, pendle do one for £4
