33rd Scalextric Club (11th June 2013)

The broad and powerful Classic and Can-Am class combines nostalgia with sheer grunt at the London Scalextric Club tonight.

It’s one of my favourite classes as Steve lends me a short wheelbase Porsche in a Gulf livery. It’s a zippy little thing but very easy to control and super agile on the fiddly green lane

We used 5 lanes and each race was 3 minutes long.
