The National Scalextric Collectors Club is currently in its 40th year of existence. It is almost certainly the oldest such enthusiasts club in the world and its monthly magazine is the longest continuously running English language publication devoted purely to slot cars anywhere.
The club has never had a huge membership but has consistently punched above its weight and been responsible for initiating many of the things we take for granted these days such as swapmeets, limited edition cars and the UKSF. Several of today’s major slot car suppliers such as Pendle and MRE can trace their foundation directly back to their membership of the NSCC.
Ex journal editor Brian Rogers is in the process of documenting the history of the club, from it’s very beginnings, through to the present day.
