Here's a little challenge for those of you lucky enough to own a Scalextric track.
Below left is the design of a simple circuit. Hopefully you'll have enough track to make it yourself.
The challenge is this: time yourself doing 10 laps of this circuit. Fill in the form below and send in your best time.
You don't have to include your email if you don't want to, I just won't be able to let you know if you win if you don't.
Each challenge will last a few weeks, and at the end I'll publish the winning names and times (but not your email!).
The DriveArchive team will have timed the circuit, so if you send in a silly time, I'll probably disallow it.
But, hey, it's only a bit of fun, you wouldn't want to cheat, now would you, what's the point?!
