Product Description

Product Description

The Lap Counter and Timer makes Scalextric racing more exciting than ever before. The unit counts down the number of laps remaining in your race, from sprint challenges to endurance racing (up to a maximum 999 laps). The timer also records the fastest lap time for each lane to the nearest tenth of a second (up to 99.9 second lap time displayed). Featuring a clear LCD and sound. Suitable for use on Standard Scalextric layouts. For Digital layouts see C7039 Digital Lap Counter.

Manufacturer's Description

Adding a lap counter brings a whole new dimension to your races. You can set it to count down from up to 999 laps. It can also time your laps to the nearest 1/10th of a second so you can set your own lap records! Features both an LCD display and audible signals and is suitable for both Sport and Classic track layouts.

Scalextrix has entertained generations of people since its launch at the Harrogate Toy Fair in 1957. Scalextric has become synonymous with slot car racing the world over and is an established British institution and iconic 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!

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.

This is the second new scalextric product we've had recently and both required modification with a stanley knife before they would work as expected. In this case, the moulded channel for the cars was not a channel at all, so the cars just got stuck. Rather than send back and disappoint my daughter, I spent 15 minutes cutting out the offending plastic so the cars could pass un-obstructed. It now works great, but surely such a basic defect should be getting picked up before getting to the customer.

My second issue with Scalextric is that there is absolutely no response from their customer service email address, other than an automated acknowledgement. So if you have any problems, don't expect Scalextric to sort them out.

This and other recent experiences with Scalextric have totally put us off buying any more bits from them.

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.

This is an essential bit of kit for any one who has a scalextric set. It is amazing and makes playing with scalextric 1000% better than it normally yes it is that good. There are a few problems however it does not always pick up when car completes a lap, there is a limit on lap time to 99.9 seconds which is rubbish is you have a very long track.

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.

Great to be able to automatically count down the laps when racing. Works as described and adds a bit of edge to the racing fun.
