Life in the fast lane for professional events organiser
Business leaders will be able to settle their differences on the track after professional event organiser, Gable Events, acquired one of the largest Giant Scalextric sets in the country from Scalextric International to offer for hire at corporate events.The monster 24 ft x 10 ft track – one of only very few tracks that feature eight lanes – comes with a selection of over 100 vehicles including Formula 1, Le Mans, Lotus 7, Dodge Vipers, Porsche, Mini Coopers, Motorbikes, Trucks, Vintage Cars, four wheeled drives and many more, including race caravans, horses and chariots.
Complete with PA, compere and race marshall, the track has a selection of three different backdrops: F1, Newmarket Racecourse and an Alpine option with working train and chairlift. Extra powerful magnets minimise the frustrating problem of cars flying off the track on corners.
Gable Events’ managing director, Merklyn Hauck, said: “This Scalextric track is outstanding; the track and car reliability is superb, the range of vehicles and surrounding scenery is vast and the circuit is very quick. We are expecting this to be one of the most popular activities with our corporate clients this year.”
