The History of the National Scalextric Collectors Club | Brian Rogers, Jeremy Naylor, and the NSCC
The National Scalextric Collectors Club (NSCC) is currently in its 40th year of existence, founded in January 1981 (not 1980 as their website would have you believe). It is almost certainly the oldest such enthusiasts club in the world and its magazine is the longest continuously running English language publication devoted purely to slot cars anywhere.
It has never had a huge membership but has consistently punched above its weight and been responsible for several of the things we take for granted these days. As with all such clubs it has had its fair share of ups and downs but has survived financial crises, committee upheavals and even the rise of the internet so I thought it time to document its full story.
