Scalextric - This is the best-known Slot Car Brand in the UK, with a wide range of products designed for Children and Adults.

Carrera - Most consumers in the UK are unaware of Carrera, however Carrera is the largest slot car brand in the World - with great market share throughout Europe and USA. Their product range matches that of Scalextric and in several ways offers more (for more serious racers.)

- More Affordable

- Smaller Track is better for tight spaces

- Track is easier to assemble


- Better Quality

- Wider Track is better for Racing and allows larger 1:24 Cars

- Wider Track Slots (easier to put the car back on track)

- Track is stronger and better for raised sections

- Track connections are more secure

- Wireless Throttles are rechargeable and have their own charging dock

- Very easy to adjust car settings and start races, without the use of additional software or an APP

- Track can accommodate 1:32 & 1:24 Cars to offer two entirely different racing experiences

- Better functionality for serious racing (Sector times etc.)
