Now we're talking, that's bloody brilliant, it's sure to encourage new business to the Scalextric brand.

(By the way, I'm from England and that was a positive comment.!!

Hi there all..

Well done Scalextric/Hornby, for bringing out this range of slot cars


This Scalextric "Cars" set, and the seperate "Cars" models coming out later in the year, are just perfect, to get youngsters intrested in slot cars and slot car racing, especially with the new "Cars 2" movie coming out soon.

Get the kids intrested in slot cars, at an early age, after all they are the "next generation" of buyers, racers and collectors.

All the best.. Martin De'Ath.

Another slot manufacturer will have the Mainland Europe/USA licence, possibly Carrera, who have made a few of the Cars characters in 1/43 scale

That's a great set, too bad it's not available in Canada, I know someone who'd love it.
So yes, I think it's great (That's a positive U.K. comment by proxy because I'm British but I live in Canada)
cheers,
Tom.
