Martin Brundle’s Ultimate 2015 Scalextric Circuit for Auction

Classic Car Auctions (CCA) is delighted to announce it will be auctioning Hornby Hobbies’ Ultimate 2015 Scalextric track at CarFest South on Sunday 30th August.

Designed by Sky Sports F1® expert Martin Brundle, the biggest layout the slot car track experts have ever created will take centre stage on Hornby’s stand at the festival.

Scalextric’s magnificent track is made up of 177 pieces and is 45 metres long.  It features the best corners, chicanes, and sections from the 2015 F1® calendar that fans can watch live on Sky Sports F1® throughout the season, including:

  • Italy and the Ascari Chicane
  • Monaco and the Casino Square
  • Canada and the Wall of Champions
  • Silverstone and the Copse
  • Abu Dhabi and the Marina Complex

Martin Brundle, Sky Sports F1® expert and former racing driver, commented: “The team challenged me to design my dream circuit using sections from the 19 F1® races in 2015, all of which will be live on Sky Sports F1®. I immediately wanted a figure of ‘8’ like our beloved Suzuka, and could only dream of driving a series of corners such as scaling the mountain up to turn one in Austin before falling through the ‘Senna S’ of Brazil and towards Silverstone’s fearsome Copse corner.

And that’s just a small section. Now amazingly, we’ve built a model and so I will revert to my childhood for many laps. It’s going to get competitive.”

Hornby Hobbies Marketing Controller Jim Proctor-Blain said, “We are delighted to be supporting CarFest again this year and are excited so many people will be able to enjoy the Ultimate 2015 track.”

“Martin’s design has mass appeal so we hope to raise much needed funds for Children in Need.”

Kindly donated by Hornby and Sky, the Ultimate 2015 track will feature as part of CCA’s auction and is offered with no reserve, with 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the track going to Children in Need.

Guy Lees-Milne, general manager, Classic Car Auctions said, “We’d like to thank Hornby once again for allowing us to auction this amazing circuit in our sale at CarFest. We’re sure there will be plenty of interest and hope to generate a fantastic sum for charity.”

To see and race on the track visit Hornby on stand W25 at CarFest South from 12pm to 7pm on Friday 28th August and 10am to 7pm on Saturday and Sunday the 29th and 30th August.
