4.0 out of 5 stars Not as simple as it looks
Bit of advice to any potential buyers: look carefully at the connections shown in the picture...as the manufacturers want this to be compatable with both classic and sport track, you can see the fasteners are not the same on both sides.

The way this connects to your track is by a "converter" piece which transforms what seems at first glance to be a half-length...

1.0 out of 5 stars false advertising
The product is not branded scalextric. It is manufactured by hornby and works fine with the sport track but it is not meant for the UK mainland.
The seller is not interested in providing a UK scalextric version when I complained so I would avoid especially since its only a few pounds more to purchase direct from Scalextric (at least you know what you are...

This review is from: Scalextric C8215 Lap Counter/Timer 1:32 Scale Accessory (Toy)
Bit of advice to any potential buyers: look carefully at the connections shown in the picture...as the manufacturers want this to be compatable with both classic and sport track, you can see the fasteners are not the same on both sides.

The way this connects to your track is by a "converter" piece which transforms what seems at first glance to be a half-length accessory to the size of a full length track piece. For some sets with few or no customisable straights (a figure of eight track, for example) it can be challenging to find space for it without a big rethink.

Due to restricted space I ended up having to cut/file away fastenings from a couple of mis-matching pieces and super-glue them together.

So, don't make the same mistake as me. When planning your track, allow a full track length for this accessory!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lap Counter - A useful addition, 5 Jan 2005
By A Customer
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Scalextric C8215 Lap Counter/Timer 1:32 Scale Accessory (Toy)
The lap counter is great for keeping tag of what is happening on the race track.
The cars move so fast and if they do happen to leave the track, it is often difficult to work out who has done how many laps - not now.
Not only does this accessory count down the laps (which can be set independently for each lane, therby introducing a handicap system) it also times each lap showing the fastest time for each player at the end of the race. This gives another "opponent" to beat.
The set also includes a convertor straight to make it compatible with both the classic and sport track sets.
Overall a great addition to any scalextric set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scalextric Lap Counter C8215, 27 Dec 2009

= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Scalextric C8215 Lap Counter/Timer 1:32 Scale Accessory (Toy)
This piece of kit is neccessary to know who's winning, it counts down the number of laps in the form of a digital readout. It also times a lap as well. Will fit older as well as newer tracks, has a half track to join on using the joiners that are different to your track, creating a full length with the same as your track joiners at each end. Needs batteries though, pity it's not powered from the track.

The lap counter is an excellent addition to the Scalextric set up. It's great for holding competitions as the counter doesn't lie!

I got the lap counter and timer to complement a Scaletrix Set we bought for my 9 year old son. Originally we didn't install it as we wanted to check the set worked fine. Today we added the counter and it has made a huge improvement! Have the timer beep with every completed lap adds to the excitement. Even if you are behind there is still the challenge of winning fastest lap. Would say this an essential for any Scaletric set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 21 July 2014

This review is from: Scalextric C8215 Lap Counter/Timer 1:32 Scale Accessory (Toy)
Works well with the scalextric C1297 circuit. Tracks fastest lap for each car and the number of remaining laps. It does not give you the overall time for all laps completed but it is good fun. Was easy to fit on the circuit.
