The UK Slot Car Festival, sponsored by Scalextric, returns to the British Motor Museum on 11 & 12 May.


The event showcases a wide range of major slot car manufacturers including Scalextric,, Carrera, SCX, NSR, & H0 AFX and a large retail area selling everything a slot car enthusiast could need, from one-off collector items to newly launched products.  Organisers are expecting a record attendance of up to 5,000 attendees, making it one of the most highly anticipated events on the slot car racing calendar.

The Slot Car Festival will also provide visitors with the unique opportunity to meet the faces behind some of the best-selling and most beloved Scalextric products.

Visitors can also enter a number of thrilling competitions and activities, including a fastest lap competition that will put racers' skills to the test. For younger attendees, a colouring competition will spark creativity and imagination, with the winning design immortalised as a one-of-a-kind Scalextric car.
