A series of Scalextric catalogue covers

British Manufacturer

Scalextric is one of the most famous and long lived manufacturers in slot car history. The brand was born when engineer Bertram “Freddie” Francis converted his Scalex range of clockwork metal cars to use electric motors in 1957. Scalextric went on to become one of the pioneers of mainstream slot car racing, and it's name has been synonymous with the hobby, particularly in the UK.

The company produced the first edition of it's annual catalogue in 1960, and the publication continues to this day.
