    This will be EPIC!


    Info says....The Top Gear presenter sets out to re-create the famous banked Brooklands track in Surrey, made entirely out of Scalextric pieces. Toy enthusiasts join James as he puts together 20,000 sections of track over the original 2.75-mile circuit, and local residents pit their racing skills against a team from the official Scalextric Club

    Excellent episode! The train one advertised is going to be a bit of a beast. 10mile long track :O
