Welcome to ManicSlots'
Slot Car Movies

My wife in all her tolerance for my love of this insane hobby where a 1,000 slots will never be enough, produced this video as a joke with the kids one weekend. The photos had been quickly taken with an iPhone while I wasn't looking and the video put together in 30 minutes and then presented to me as the kids laughed along! Personally, I loved it and asked if I could provide some better photography to improve the video so I could share it with all the collectors out there - "A Thousand Slots is Never Enough" was born, I hope you enjoy it.

Want to see Jeremy Clarkson test racing a Mercedes SLR McLaren 722 GT?

This YouTube video has some of the best (perhaps also the craziest) driving I have ever seen!!

For those of you lucky enough to own a Playstation 3, Sony has recently released Gran Turismo 5, a game 6 years in the making with over 70 tracks combinations and 1000+ cars to collect!!

Below is the opening movie featuring the song 'Planetary (Go)' by My Chemical Romance which show cases just a small taste of the action that GT5 offers. Now if you get bored with the start factory scene and just want to skip to the action then fast forward to the 3 minute 20 second mark.

A word of warning however, be sure there's nothing sharp on the ground under your jaw!

'The Run', getting a little old now with the release of the 370Z but still a FANTASTIC movie. Featuring a 2003 model 350Z being driven in a high-speed run through the narrow cobblestone streets of Prague in the Czech Republic at up to 200 km/h (124 mph).

Enjoy this great movie of the new NSR GT40 MkII, enjoy!

Derek Bell behind the wheel of a 1966 model GT40 Mk.I built by Pathfinder Motorsports doing a demonstration run at Sebring International Raceway's 24-hour course.
This is an excellent quality movie, hdmi output to your TV and stereo if possible. I dare you to turn it up above -5dB with the subwoofer cranked!
OMG!!! Aston Martin's £1.2 million supercar!
