Record Breaking Fun with Top Toys

A world record was set last weekend, for the world's longest slot racing track; and by slot racing I mean the beloved Scalextric. It took place as part of the filming of James May's Toy Stories and the Pendle Slot Racing Festival.

The event was held at Brooklands, the site of the world's first purpose built motor sport circuit, of which only one of the original banked curves remains.

Hundreds of volunteers put together over 20,000 sections of track to make the record beating 2.75 mile circuit.

There were some great pictures on The Daily Telegraph website and the BBC show should air a little later this year.

Another world record record attempt takes place on Monday 24th August 2009. When James May and volunteers try to re-open a dis-used railway line between Barnstable and Bidefordwith 00 Hornby track.
