Hi all. 

I bought a used micro scalextric recently and it arrived today. There was a car included but not one of the ones from the set. On closer inspection, iim pretty sure it isn't a scalextric car but i can't find anything about it anywhere. Do any of you have any idea what it is? 

Thanks in advance, 

Moofenstein

Very nice! That is a Micro Scalextric car - or rather a Scalextric Micro MR1 car - from 1994. The chassis is the original MR-1 version that Scalextric released when Scalextric Micro was launched in February 1994 -  25 years ago. Although the MR-1 chassis and track system was changed a year later to the Micro Scalextric system we know today, some MR-1 cars like this Sasol Jordan was available individually for a few more years.

 

The car will run on Micro Scalextric track or you can swap the body onto the current ‘narrow’ Micro Scalextric F1 chassis. Spares for the MR-1 cars are getting hard to find. That car in good used condition is worth in the region of £25 to £40. I really like these 1990s Micro Scalextric F1s - I have them all :-)

Wow! Never expected that! It came with the MR1 set i bought. Never seen one before so really appreciate the info. The track has a few damaged pieces and i have managed to buy some track on ebay to replace it. Sadly the 30 degree banked curve i need to replace the damaged one is proving  a little harder to find but i keep looking. Thanks again!
