Slot the track together
The Olympics are coming to London in 2012? WTF?! Oh alright, unless you’ve been hiding under a pile of rubble for the past few years you can’t have missed the sense of growing excitement around the Nation’s capital. But how to break the anxious, sweaty-palmed tension? With the GB Cycling Micro Scalextric Set
, of course!
Take control of Team GB Cyclists Matt Crampton and Chris Hoy
(the resemblance is uncanny) and tear around the track as you compete for the fastest times. Sure, the track offers little in the way of twists, chicanes and loop-the-loops. But then: adventure, excitement? An Olympic athlete craves not these things. For them it’s all about speed and perfect technique
Everything you need to recreate a miniature velodrome in your living room
Crampton vs Hoy – who will win?
Race your friends or time yourself around this Micro Scalextric interpretation of London’s Olympic Velodrome
