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.

Test Track episode 4 takes a look behind the scenes with Scalextric's most recent campaign 'Own the Track', as we speak to Mike, the man responsible for this exciting ad. There's also a wealth of reintroductions to discuss and our trip to Goodwood Revival 2018.
