The UK Slot Car Festival is returning to the newly-refurbished British Motor Museum in May. The event, which takes place over the weekend of 14-15 May, showcases the world of slot cars and promises to be a great day out for kids of all ages.

Major manufacturers will be at the event, including Scalextric, Carrera, SCX,, NSR, Ninco & many more. New for this year is the slot car ‘wall of death’ competition and stunt show.

There will be plenty of interactive activities to enjoy, including tracks, rally stages, oval banger racing, a drag strip, Ho Scale tracks, and digital layouts. Best of all, visitors can also enjoy entry to the Spring Classic car gathering outside the Museum.

Tom Caren, show manager at the museum said, ‘The UK’s number one slot car event is always a fantastic hands-on weekend for all the family to enjoy. As well as appealing to slot racers collectors and car fanatics, the festival is a great opportunity for those new to the hobby to get an insight into what it’s all about!’
