Scalextric Rally / Rallycross

Next years Scalextric releases have been announced - Audi Sport quattro, lancia Delta S4, More Mk1 and Mk2 Escorts (the Mk2's obviously being the best cars Scalextric have ever made ), RS200 and a 6R4 - Lawrence Gisbsons 6R4 to be precise - how good is that?

Sadly no proper Rallycross Cars announced in the 2015 range today, but there is the 1979 John Taylor Haynes rally Escort, that is often displayed in the Paddock at Lydden.

And they are producing a 205 T16, so come on scalextric how about a special edition of Matti Alamaki cars, now you have moulds for both a 205 and S4.

If several people wrote to Scalextric you may be surprised by the result. To your point once they have the mould it is only a matter of licensing issues. I couldn't identify the new rally 6R4.

There is a guy who makes custom rallycross cars on ebay and he has made some really good cars in the past. I have a lot from him (I am so sad!) including an Alamaki Delta S4

That is actually Spanish Scalextric, SCX. Known as Scalextric in Spain only, but SCX everywhere else.

I work for the UK, original, Scalextric and we do have a Rallycross effort this year!

Also just seen this, watched Rallycross since the late 1980s, my first ever exposure to motorsport was a windy day at Croft watching a British round. So yeah, we know who that is ta

That's good news, could do with a Hansen or Trevor Reeves version to race against it. (but guess that's being greedy!)

A couple of years back there was a "Rosie" Pat Doran's RS200 listed, but I don't think it was ever released. Any chance of one in the future, fingers well and truly crossed!

It wasn't no, pre order numbers were sadly very low against it, hence the cancellation. I doubt it will make a come back therefore.

Hansen's BP Sierra however....

Thanks!

That's a shame, I've got the Schanche and Hopkins RS200's along with the Gollop and Gibson 6R4's - would have been good to add another RS200.

There's a guy selling a lot of custom made rallycross slot cars on ebay - everything from Schanche Escorts through to Godfreys Fiesta, Doran and Carnegies Fiestas. Impressive but pricey!

Blimey a BP Sierra would be good...

Really surprised about "Rosie" though, and wasn't aware pre-orders determined if a model was produced or not. Is that customer pre-orders or shop pre-orders?

Have to say I would of thought the Pat Doran RS200 had everything going for it. Firstly you already have the tooling. Its "GROUP B", the car has a name "Rosie", unlike many, in that colour scheme its body shape matched the rally version, though she did sprout all kinds of wings and splitters when Pat brought her back to Rallycross. With Liam at the wheel she probably did the most impressive lap around Lydden last year of anything that took to the track. And unlike many of your models, the car is still active today so can appeal to a range of generations for those that saw her race in anger to those that watch her demo in the present day, and she often features at the sell out Goodwood Festival of Speed. If anything I would of thought it would of sold better than the "Hoppy" version, as would appeal to those that saw her race in Europe as well as UK. Oh well.......... at least there has been an XR3i in John Welch STP colours, the Steve Palmer and Barry Squibb Escorts, the Gollop and Gibson 6R4's and the Schanche and Hoppy RS200's, and a Quattro that looked very similar to Arnesson's scheme, and the Herbert Breiteneder Sport, so Rallycross hasn't done too badly over the years.
