A series of pages and covers from Airfix

British Manufacturer

The origins of Airfix slot cars date back to the founding of Model Road Racing Cars in 1951. MRRC moved from rail racing to slot cars, and Airfix Motor Racing was launched in February 1962, after Airfix took over the smaller company.

Airfix continued producing their 1/32 scale slot cars and track until 1981, and although the company collapsed and was never to produce slot cars again, MRRC continued independently.
