Been a fan of Scalextric since they were first released and my brother and I had one of the first "Tin plate" sets, regrets not still having it.
Started collecting again in the early 70's but that collection mysteriously disappeared when I moved house at one time.
The passion was rekindled about 6 years ago when my grandson convinced me (not really difficult) they we really needed to buy a "Super Cheap Bathurst set" with Murphy51 Commdore and Lowdnes Better Electrical 888 Falcon.
Since the humble start we have been collecting alsorts probably have 30+ V8's some in need of repair, old Motorcycle & sidecars, Moto GP's Mini's and old lemans cars.
Curently have first layout set up on a 3.6 by 1.2 table, have the 6 car digital set up, had a 4 car one but grabbed a 6car one as you can run analog as well, was not happy with the way the 6 car digital performed so went back to analog. I have since found out most of the problems was with the tracks them selves so this is fixed and I really want to try and build a larger track of Winton or Darwin time permitting, perhaps this will be some thing for a future post.
