GALLERY: Scalextric Tyrrell 002

Scalextric Tyrrell 002
C3482A, Francois Cevert, 'Legends' F1 series

The Tyrrell 002 makes for another stunning classic F1 release from Scalextric in their newly introduced 'Legends' range.  Presentation on the track is fantastic, Scalextric have put a lot of effort into capturing the detail and their efforts are appreciated.  The large intakes in the front wing make the car look particularly unique and the blue elf livery looks great on the track.

Performance is also very pleasing with my model turning some fast and competitive laps straight from the box.  You'll be happy to know that Scalextric have fitted the Tyrrell with their small button magnet (just forward of the rear axle - see below photo) allowing the slot to drift at time when pushed through corners.  

I must apologise for the quality of the photography, my 7D is on the blink so these have been taken with my iPhone.  :)  The Tyrrell is limited to just 3000 units, availability will be short term so make sure you secure one if you have the means.

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.'
