• Sticky labels
Lots of people will have played Scalextric during their childhood, its time to reminisce and regress:
• Start by identifying how much track you have between you and bring it to BB. Think about who else might have some track and ask if you could borrow it (promise to return it safely!).
• Design the course layout.
• Build the track.
• The competition can now begin. You could time the fastest lap, an endurance race, a league, or a cup with qualifying rounds.
Tips / Advice:
• Make sure that you label to %t1om each piece of equipment belongs.
• Can you beat this world record? According to Guinness World Records a scalextric car ran non-stop for 866 hours 44 minutes 54 seconds and covered a distance of 2850.39 km, from the 2nd May to 7th June 1989. The event was organised by the Reverend Bryan G. Apps, and Church members of Southbourne, Bournemouth.
