The Elektra GP rounds off the (Scalextric) motor racing calendar
“Some say, that even with your crash helmet on, the sound alone will leave you grinning for days.”
“Others say, the 400bhp flowing through the rear wheels is an unrivalled experience only enjoyed by a special, select, privileged few.”
Although Sebastian Vettel has been crowned the FIA drivers champion, there is still one race left in the motor racing calendar, the inaugural Elektra GP.
Like Bahrain, the circuit has been constructed within a luxury hotel complex and the only difference is scale: Well, 1:24 to be more precise as this prize will be awarded to the best driver of the “fastest lap competition” held on a Giant Scalextric circuit that will form part of the entertainment at this year’s Elektra Awards.
To be in with a chance of doing your best impression of “The Stig” by getting behind the wheel of a real V8 360 Modena Ferrari at Silverstone all you have to do is book a place or preferably several tables at this year’s awards.
