With Christmas only a few weeks away, we review the Scalextric Back to the Future vs Knight Rider Race Set.

Get ready for the ultimate Scalextric battle with the new Back to the Future vs Knight Rider Race Set. Buckle up as the iconic Michael Knight racing K.I.T.T or imagine travelling in the Back to the Future Time Machine as Doc or Marty McFly. Combining retro Scalextric branding with the high detailed and functional film inspired vehicles, as well as everything you need to begin your Scalextric journey in one box.

Two of the most iconic film cars ever go head-to-head in this brand-new set from Scalextric! Will you be Michael Knight in K.I.T.T.? Or Doc or Marty McFly in the Back to the Future Time Machine? Whether you are doing 88MPH or chasing down bad guys, red LED lights flashing on either car is a guaranteed winner on the big screen, small screen or Scalextric track! This set contains everything you need to race Scalextric, including two cars, power, over 5.3 metres of track including a crossover, side swipe and 2 easy speed limiting hand controllers.

What’s in the box?

The box contains the Back to the Future Delorean Car, KITT car, 2 hand controllers, a transformer, a powerbase, 20 Track pieces and a braid pack.

Final Thoughts

This new set brings together two of the 1980s most iconic vehicles, K.I.T.T. and the Delorean.

The attention to detail on both K.I.T.T. and the Delorean is amazing – K.I.T.T. is being driven by Michael Knight and the Delorean is being driven by Marty McFly (just as they both should be). K.I.T.T. has a working red strobe light and the Delorean has front and rear lights, including a working Flux Capacitor.

Putting together the track was simple and fun, and the anticipation of getting to race these two vehicles was high, to say the least. There are instructions that give you some ideas of the track layout, or you can just make your own track too!

This set utilises Scalextric Magnatraction, which basically means it helps keep the cars on the track. There is nothing worse than racing and the cars just keep coming off! That said, there are a few parts of the track that if you time it just right you can knock the other car off – now that is fun!

There is also a dual-lane crossover part of the track which gives you the opportunity to literally knock the other car flying!

The Scalextric Back to the Future vs Knight Rider Race Set is available now priced around £159.99 and it would make a fantastic Christmas present for any fan of the 80s! I’m off to play with it again!

You can learn more from the Scalextric website.
