NEWS: Impala Nascar 2009

Scalextric Chevrolet Impala Nascar 2009
C3003 Dale Earnhart Jnr No. 88 and
C3004 J Johnson Lowes No. 48

Nascars anyone? Hell yeah, Scalextric have released two exciting new Chevrolet Impala SS Nascar liveries; the Dale Earnhart Jnr No. 88 (C3003) and the J. Johnson Lowes No. 48 (C3004).

This from Scalextric: "NASCAR has been a very popular theme in the Scalextric range for over 10 years and has built up an excellent reputation for providing high quality build cars, the very best level of decoration, robustness and exciting performance.

The simple side-winder chassis design, rugged body exterior and detailed interior make this car a joy to race. Scalextric has also released two liveries of Dale’s 2008 team car. The National Guard livery (C2958) and the AMP sponsored car (C2895). The very colourful NASCAR cars are also a very popular theme for collectors."

If you have some of these then you'll know just how well they perform on the track and just how much fun they can be when competitively raced! Exterior detail levels (great interiors) are a little lower than your usual Scalextric slot but they more than make up for that deficiency in decals and track performance and of course Nascars don't have real lights.
