Andy Rouse is regarded by many people as one of the most successful drivers ever to appear in the BSCC. His 60 overall wins in the category was the highest total by any driver for many years, until being overhauled by Jason Plato at Brands Hatch in the opening round of the 2011 season. The BTCC underwent a revised structure for the 1990 season and catered for GpA-specification cars in two classes; up to 2000cc and over 2000cc. Rouse finished 3rd overall and 2nd in class in the 1990 British Touring Car Championship.

Frank Sytner's BTCC career started in 1982 when he started racing a Rover 3500S for Team Sanyo Racing, after a season of mixed results Frank naturally gravitated towards BMW and started to race for Grace International Racing. Solely driving BMW's from then on, Frank achieved his first overall BTCC win in 1988 and became British Touring Car Champion – a title he would earn again in 1990 in the up to 2000cc division with the BMW M3s enjoying a 27 race/class-winning sequence. Frank Sytner took the class honours, with five wins in the division in total.

Growing up we had a lot of Fords, notably Sierras and aspired to the RS500 with its iconic 'whale tale' spoiler and imposing grill... Here's to still living in hope!

cool

the BMW M3 is the better of the two cars in terms of racing as it is very fast and very good at corners and grips very well. the ford isn't as grippy but is more fun to drive as it is easier to skid without coming off than the M3. If your going to crash cars a lot buy a car that you don't mind damaging rather than this one as I've already broken the backewheel on the ford. overall both very good for the amount of money you buy them for.

Nice, with reservations.

Beautiful evocative models, run very well. It's just a shame Scalextric have removed the interior detail and stepped backwards in order to appease the 'club racers' who don't mind hacking their cars to bits anyway?

Door handle to door handle

Epic set and BRILLIANT addition to the classic touring cars.

These latest models are poles apart from the 90s models and the finish and detail is superb...the only downside being that Im finding this latest range particularly addictive.

On track the Sierra is a wonderful smooth runner, with excellent (bit not too much) grip. They look fabulous when running together on my circuit and handling is very good. I don't run magnets, so carry too much speed into the corner and expect to lean on your fellow driver if side by side, or if not, 2 wheels and rolls will not be too far away. However carry just the right speed in and accelerate out and controlling the tail happy rear ends into the perfect exit with a little slide whiles away hours!

A slight niggle is the narrow front track on the M3 Scalextric - the beautiful gold wheels sit too far inside the arches. I will fettle my model, and I love them both so much I can't give anything but a 5* review!

More Sierra liveries please!
