Porsche 917 Le Mans Raceway

Porsche 917 Le Mans Raceway

You’re either going to have to love your kids a hell of a lot or have more money than sense to add this absurdly brilliant Porsche 917 Le Mans Raceway to their toy chest (which it clearly won’t fit in. Or through the front door). Costing over £100,000 (possibly, I think) it’s certainly more expensive than the Scalextric set that I had as a youth. To be fair, however, the cars on this one probably don’t come flying off the rails LITERALLY every time you press the button on the controller. And it is housed in a replica Porsche 917 from the Le Mans race. Again, something that my Scalextric was not. It was housed in various different bits of my bedroom in parts. Not as visually impressive, safe to say. I’m pretty sure if I had hours to spare, any semblance of creative talent, DIY capabilities, patience, the inclination and the requisite knowledge of the Le Mans race course, I could knock up something similar. And sell it for about £50 or so. Interested Toys ‘R’ Us? You know where I am.
