Here`s the Scaley & Jouef Go-Karts alongside each other.
Both are approx 1/24 scale.
Whilst it was a bit of a leap in size for Scalextric, it was huge for Jouef whose cars were normally in 1/40 scale.

The Scaley Kart was first released in 1963 & the Jouef version in 1973.

Whilst the Scaley Kart has better detailing it is badly let down by it`s poor handling & lack of grip.
The Jouef Kart flies round the track & is very stable.

The Scaley Kart is quite a rare item, however with only a handful remaining the Jouef is rarer still. They were only available for a very short time & never released as part of a set. As a result it is one of the most sought after items by Jouef collectors.

Cheers,
Kev.

I haven`t got any Ninco Karts..very nice, but a bit too modern for me!
You wouldn`t believe the job I had getting hold of the Jouef Kart.
Great info Phil !

Here`s the Jouef Kart on my Jouef layout next to one of their 1/40 cars.

Lovely Bernard.
White E Type with black hardtop Phil? That`s the rarest colour of all for the hardtop version.
Sorry I haven`t been in touch lately Phil, loads of cr*p going on with ill parents. I`ll be getting in touch with you next week.
Cheers
Kev
