Scalextric Books ...

Post by Luke »

When I got back involved with the 1:32 slot-car world in 1999 - catch sight (online) of Scalextric Books ... by Roger Gillham.

Here are recorded names of (all the known) books published & so happened, got myself copies of (and by coincidence) the 5th. Edition & the Scalextric 50th. Anniversary - A Race Through Time ;)

An Enthusiast's Guide to Scalextric Cars and Equipment, Past and Present 1981 Book by Roger Gillham
Scalextric: Cars and Equipment, Past and Present Book by Roger Gillham - Fully Revised New Edition
Scalextric: Cars and Equipment, Past and Present Book by Roger Gillham - Fully Revised New Edition
Scalextric: Cars and Equipment, Past and Present 4th. Edition Book by Roger Gillham
Scalextric: Cars and Equipment, Past and Present 5th. Edition 2001 Book by Roger Gillham ***
Scalextric: The Definitive Guide 6th. Edition Book by Roger Gillham
Scalextric: The Ultimate Guide 7th. Edition Book by Roger Gillham
Scalextric: A Race Through Time - The Official 50th. Anniversary 2007 Book by Roger Gillham ***
Scalextric: The Ultimate Guide 8th. Edition 2015 Book by Adrian Norman and Roger Gillham
Scalextric: The Ultimate Guide / Tracks and Accessories 9th. Edition 2021 ~ a series of 10 Books by Adrian Norman
Note: The spine of each of the 10 books, bears a letter of the word SCALEXTRIC ... https://slotracer.online/community/show ... p?tid=2152 ... for example: Volume 1 has the letter 'S' and volume 2 has the letter 'C' etc. The 10 volumes are A4 size and weighs approx. 2lbs. plus books may have a page count of 250 to 350 pages.

By extension, there are books by other persons and got (the 2 below) by D. Chang but unfortunately (these 2) were destroyed by flooding-waters in 2012.

Gordon,

Those 4 model cars featured on (the front page of) your Vintage Slot Cars book ...

Looks really GR8 and reminds me (so much) of your Vintage Slot Car collection :D

Surprise you didn't get a copy the DIGITAL Slot Car Racing (hand book) by Dave Chang ...

It's probably pointless now though because you're most likely very knowledgeable with all that was written 8-)
