produced several national racing champions so they know a thing or two about racing.

With slot car racing having more than 60 years of history, we take a look back at some of the cars, drivers, and notable events of the past. Slot car kits are nothing new, Scalextric have tried them three
times but did they succeed?
58 HEAD TO HEAD

50 SENNA WILLIAMS FW08
The first car in a magical series including every Grand Prix car that Ayrton Senna ever drove has arrived on the 20th anniversary of that fateful day at Imola. Itâ€™s a new car to the slot racing world so we just had to have a close look.

How hard is it to build a car that can push others out of the way, take a few trips to the floor, and still keep winning? The Midlands Slot Stox guys show us some of the secrets of combining brute force and speed with a little skill and a soldering iron.
18 BUILDING AND RACING A RESIN CAR KIT
Almost every car that isnâ€™t made by a major manufacturer is available from one of the specialist resin kit suppliers. Donâ€™t think they are slow or delicate â€“ we show you how to build one with a laser-cut steel chassis and compete in one of the many events for classic cars.
