TWO MODEL pre-war cars — a 1929 Bentley and a 1933 Alfa Romeo — will soon be able to relive past glories on Scalextric circuits. Following continued requests from enthusiasts. they are making a welcome return to the Scalextric model motor racing stable after an absence of more than a decade. The Bentley (catalogue No. C305) is t. supercharged 4/’.litre model. The Scalextric model, in green liver, is meticulously detailed,
with many parts vacuum-plated. ‘The Alfa Romeo ,0000 is the famous 8C-2300-B sports model which won Le Mans in 1932, 1933 and 1934. The painstakingly reproduced Scalextric model is in blue livery and is based on the car which finished second in the 1935 race.
These models am not recommended for use on layouts which include banked or inner curve track sections but many enthusiasts are expected to buy them for their superb looks and the sense of nostalgia that they evoke when racing around the track. The retail price of each is £12.95. — W.B.
