Scalextric G1072 Team GB Velodrome 2012: Track Cycling 1:64 Scale Race Set

The first and only Team GB Velodrome Cycling Set

Cycling has featured in every Summer Olympic Games since the start of the modern Olympic movement in 1896. The award-winning London Velopark was built for the 2012 Summer Olympics, the first instance of the games to see men and women compete in the same number of events in all cycling disciplines. Scalextric's Team GB Velodrome Cycling set follows the traditional slot racing format, but instead of using cars there are two miniature cyclists. The set features a banked oval track, with two challenging chicanes to test your nerve. It features two Team GB Olympic cyclists and is an official product of Team GB.

The Velodrome Course

2.72 metres of track (requires 105 cm x 61 cm of space)
Banked turns
Team GB display trackside feature
Official Team GB artwork

Super Resistant Team GB cyclists

The two bicycles have different coloured bases so racers can easily identify their cyclists. The bicycles function the same as slot cars in other Scalextric sets (in fact both are even built for Easy Change Pick-ups and include Magnatraction) and are controlled using standard Scalextric controllers supplied in the set.

The bikes have revolving spoked front wheels
Both bikes are fitted with track-gripping magnets
Both bikes have quick-change braids



Why choose Micro Scalextric?

Micro Scalextric was designed with the youngest racers in mind. The super resistant vehicles are built to withstand the odd tumble and are fitted with extra strong magnets to reduce the odds of them coming off the circuit on corners taken at speed. The track in Micro Scalextric sets is more compact and is easier to connect and disconnect too, making for easier assembly and packing away. Micro Scalextric is the perfect introduction for young children to Scalextric, offering the thrill of the original range while amply accommodating the abilities of those taking their first steps into the world of slot car racing.

    Received this as a gift this Xmas. As a cycling nut I was pleased but also a bit sceptical that it could be made to work - wouldn't the inside rider get an unfair advantage? How could we do any more than simply do a "scratch race"? OK so there are things you can't do with the set like a full-on Keirin but with a bit of creativity it's a lot of fun:

    - start riders half a lap apart and run a pursuit until one catches the other;
    - simulate a sprint with the use of the countdown timer on your phone: set it to say five seconds, set both riders off together and disqualify one if they complete the first lap before the timer beeps, and then let them sprint the second lap to decide the winner;
    - simply run a scratch race over a set number of laps.

    Yes the riders have to be handled carefully and therefore if this is for children they need to be reasonably careful but we didn't have any of the issues reported by others. Maybe we were just lucky. But spare riders at a reasonable price would be a good idea. Also how about making one of the riders an Australian say, just to make it a bit more like the real thing!

    Oh and the inside track is slightly trickier to navigate owing to the sharpness of the turn so evening up play reasonably well.

    This s a simple oval based on the smaller scalextric format. It is easy to assemble, works well and is great fun. A lap counter would be a welcome addition bu other than that it is perfect.

    Kids might get bored with this quickly nowadays, but it is a great souvenir of the 2012 Olympics. The Scalextric brand should last well and the adults enjoyed playing with it too!

    Ok,calm down calm down.Read the poor reveiws then read this.The set is really an adult toy,or one that needs sensible,firm adult supervision.It is a very clever and nicely made set.Yes of course its delicate but what do you expect,Hornby fine detail locomotives are just as easily busted.I have used this set with the cycles coming of the track enough times with no damage.The set is not bombproof,but what do you expect for 34quid(through Amazon)At full price the 2 star reviewers may have a point.As for the critisim of the carboard centre oval and the trackside " billboard " again what do you expect for the money.They are substantial enough and very nicely printed.If you are going to give this to a child,particularly a boy,and expect it to last,then dont.This should be regarded as an adult toy to be used by children under strict supervision.I am going to buy another set to extend the track and have spare cycles and controllers.I like this set,its novel,nicely made and original.Buy one and use it carefully, I`m certainly not dissapointed, and I dont think you will be either.

    Very basic set but liked the idea. Unfortunately my eight year old crashed his bike on the first corner and broke the one millimetere bit of plastic that holds the bike on the motor. That was it as its no good without the bike. The other bike sticks a lot as i noticed in other reviews. My son totally disappointed Christmas day with this product, so Hornby, shame on you. How is the designer of this product still in work? and how did it pass testing and quality control? Not fit for purpose and will definately be going back.

    Paid £20 for this as my son wanted it for Christmas. Read previous reviews about its lack of durability and thought it might be worth £20, if not the original rrp. It did survive Christmas, but only just - the corrugated cardboard base is rubbish and quickly gets dog eared and torn. Don't bother
