Test Track is our new monthly blog that takes a look behind-the-scenes of the Scalextric Development department, tracking the development of Scalextric products often many months before release, and taking a closer look at new technologies.

In this edition of Test Track, we go inside the garage to take a look at some upcoming models, Mike takes us through his first two top picks of the year, and we have just enough time to pop back to our offices in Margate for a special event!
Episode 9 of Test Track sees a brand-new feature as we enjoy a 50 lap race with Oscar and ask him about the 2019 Range. We also pick out some of our favourite bits from the announcement as well as look at some fantastic BTCC/Scalextric news!
Test Track episode six is here! Looking at the new Sunset Speedway Set, with its handy wireless controllers, we also check in with the brand-new Scalextric game on Xbox and Nintendo Switch plus look back at the amazing day we spent with Chelsea FC!
Test Track Episode 5 wishes the Ford Escort a happy 50th birthday as we try to capture as much of its history as we can in 50 seconds. We also pop 'Inside the Garage' and look ahead to an event just around the corner.
With the 2018 season of the British Touring Car Championship coming to a close, Simon was in attendance at Brands Hatch to witness the close of another thrilling year.
