32nd Scalextric Club (21st May 2013)

Gran Touring cars grace the track at the London Scalextric Club this evening.

There’s a big grid so all 6 lanes are being used for 2.5 minute sprint races.

Tony let me try out some of his Moslers made by NSR. Each one has different components and layout so it’s a bigger variety than you might think.

I selected a slightly older one with a small transverse motor. It’s mounted at a very slight angle to give the axle some clearance. Very nicely balanced with strong corner speed and a lot of straight line performance.
