NEWS: Ferrari 156

Scalextric C3033 Ferrari 156
#8 1961 Belgian Grand Prix

Scalextric really are in love with classic F1 releases and who could argue with them? Due for imminent release, the Ferrari 156 driven in the 1961 Belgian Grand Prix. The 156 is a fantastic looking slot car with its aggressive and infamous 'sharknose’. I have the Phil Hill boxed 156 (C2640A) and it is a stunning slot car up close, very small particularly in overall width and stunning on the track.

The new yellow 156 looks very impressive, especially the green tinted engine cover behind the driver. I'm a little concerned however that the driver has thrown out his neck or is suffering from whip lash!
