This distinctive circuit features long stretches to build up acceleration, as drivers compete through a hairpin curve leading into a side swipe and a bridge leading into a change-over curve. It's a challenging course befitting two of the most famous World Rally Championship cars – the Mini Countryman and the Ford Fiesta RS – both of which are super resistant to withstand collisions on this varied 6.5-metre circuit.
The Mini Countryman WRC (officially known as the Mini John Cooper Works WRC) debuted during the 2011 World Rally Championship season as the first rally car to bear the Mini label in top-level rallying since the 1960s.
It joins the Ford Fiesta RS WRC, Ford's successor to the oft-victorious Ford Focus WRC, a fellow entrant in the 2011 WRC Championship season. Both slot cars are super resistant and have Magnatraction and easy-change pick-up braids.
Scalextric 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 slots cars you own to digital.
Most standard cars are digital plug-ready (DPR), including the ones 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 an advanced and exciting experience for racers, whether you're new to Scalextric or seeking to build on your analogue sets and cars. The following accessories are required for this set to go digital: C8516 Digital Plugs, C7002 Digital Hand Throttles, power base, and C7036 Track Pieces.
If you find that one of your Scalextric vehicles is not steering correctly, it may mean that the braid plate is loose (this can be caused when vehicles are crashed together). In order to refit or replace the easy-fit braid plate on one your Scalextric vehicle, please follow the steps below to get your car up and running again:
1. Ensure the tail of the braids are facing towards the rear of the vehicle, not the front.
2. Place the braid plate onto the rear of the blade.
3. Pull the braid plate over the front of the blade.
4. Sliding the plate onto the blade, ensure you push the plate until it clicks into position.
