NEWS: Scalextric Tyrrell French GP 1971

Scalextric Tyrrell French GP 1971
C3482A, Limited Edition of 3000

Ok so you've already heard me refer to 2014 as the year of the classic F1 in our fantastic world of slot cars.  We knew it wouldn't be long till we started to see these stunning pieces of history being released and it looks like Scalextric will be getting the ball rolling with the Tyrrell F1 from 1971.  I'm pretty sure you'll all agree that this slot is going to be a must have which presents a bit of an issue as Scalextric will be limiting this release to just 3000 units.  Needless to say, preorder one if you're after one for your collection.  

From Scalextric: 'The 1971 French Grand Prix took place for the first time at the brand new Paul Ricard circuit in the mountains outside Marseille. Jackie Stewart gained pole position from Clay Regazzoni, Jacky Ickx and Graham Hill.

From the start, Stewart streaked ahead, setting fastest lap on lap 2 and pulling out a 10-second lead by lap 7. It was a 1-2 success for the Tyrrells on a tricky circuit, the Ford engine providing extra power down the very long Mistral straight. Cevert, having qualified 7th, fought his way to a 2nd place finish behind team partner Stewart.'
