Driver’s View:

Scalextric’s range of Trans-Am cars has been one of the most consistent sellers in slot racing for the past 15 years or so. When they first appeared, the Camaro and Mustang electrified both sides of the Atlantic and remain at the core of a well-matched class of muscular sports saloons. At Farnham the king of the hill for many years has been the Corvette L88 but new challengers are plentiful.
