The excitement of endurance racing is captured in this extended figure-of-eight circuit with 8.5 metres of track with a lap counter that counts down from a maximum of 999 laps. Racers can practice their skills or just engage in sprint races, too, with an added timer that records the fastest lap time for each lane to the nearest tenth of a second (up to 99.9 seconds) and has a clear LCD and sound.
The P9200 Transformer Power Supply (not included) can be connected so that power can be independently provided to each lane for improved power, making the banked curves, bridge and lane crossover sections even more exciting to traverse. With that in mind racers will also benefit from the special Dynamic Braking feature. Dynamic Braking allows a driver to stop their car almost immediately by fully releasing the trigger--like an emergency stop. Complete with high detailed slot cars of the Peugeot 908 HDi FAP and the Lola Aston Martin this is one of Scalextric's most high-octane sets.
A prototype racing car, Peugeot built the 908 HDi FAP to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race, which it won in 2009. Its slot car counterpart comes with that of the British multiple race-winning Le Man rival, the Lola-Aston Martin B09/60. Both are painted with their official colours and sponsor logos and have all the aesthetic nuances you would expect from the high detail type. With easy change pick-ups, Magnatraction and headlights and rear lights to boot, these are two of the best Scalextric cars available in any set.

Digital allows you to race more than two cars at the same time and perform amazing, realistic overtaking and braking manoeuvres on your opponents. By pressing an extra button on the digital hand throttle you can make your car switch lanes on special sections of track, allowing you to overtake or strategically block your opponents' cars at key moments in the race. Each set comes with digital cars and more can be bought separately, and you can even convert analogue slot cars you own to digital.
Most standard cars are DPR (Digital Plug Ready), including those in this set, and can be converted to digital in under a minute just by slotting in a digital plug (also available separately). Digital layouts are fully compatible with standard Scalextric track pieces. Scalextric Digital offers the most advanced and exciting experience yet for racers, whether you're new to Scalextric or seeking to build on your analogue sets and cars. Below are the accessories required for this set to go digital.
