2020 announcements for Scalextric & Carrera
#1

   

Despite some gentle nudging, both Scalextric and Carrera UK are remaining very tight-lipped about their 2020 slot car ranges. However, we do have dates for when the news will be announced...

Scalextric - The 2020 Scalextric catalogue will be launched on Monday 6 January with the complete range presented online at Scalextric.com. Scalextric Club members will all receive their 2020 catalogues (and 2020 club car) in the post during January. In addition, some new sets will be launched with a media fanfare at the London Toy Fair on 21 January. We plan to have coverage here on SlotRacer Online from Margate on 6 January and the London Toy Fair on 21 January.

Carrera - As usual, the new Carrera range will be unveiled at Spielwarenmesse (aka the Nuremberg Toy Fair) on Wednesday 29 January, with the 2020 slot car catalogue published online soon after. With a bit of luck, we hope to have coverage on SlotRacer Online from Nuremberg via one or other of our friends who will be attending.

Other manufacturers - Quite a few other slot car manufacturers will be exhibiting at Spielwarenmesse and will hopefully have lots of exciting news, prototypes and pre-production samples of their 2020 releases. We'll be bringing you that news as we get it.

Not long to wait...

We do know of a couple of 2020 releases. There is the Tyrrell P34 six-wheeler that appeared in a recent Drive Tribe video...

   

There’s also the Camaro IROC-Z that starred in the BBC documentary James May’s Big Trouble in Model Britain...

   

Another new livery was spotted in that programme - the Denny Hulme / Lloyd Ruby Ford MkIV from Le Mans 1967. Everything else is speculation...

The IROC should be available early in 2020. I shot this video about this time last year when i visited the office in England for the annual product meetings.

This popped up on the Scalextric website just before Christmas in the Pre-order and Gulf sections. Doesn’t link anywhere yet, so we’ll have to wait and see what the other two cars in the set are. The ROFGO collection does offer some rather nice choices of Gulf-liveried cars: https://www.rofgo.com/

Intriguing...

Not long to wait until the big unveiling on Wednesday...
