Scalextric proved to be a hit at CarFest North 2019
Those that were lucky enough to attend CarFest North this past weekend certainly didn’t let the weather dampen their spirits. Taking place at the remarkable Bolesworth Castle, Cheshire where Scalextric were pleased to provide a marquee full of activities.

British summertime has notoriously unpredictable weather and this weekend was no stranger to that. However, despite the rain and mud the event was a roaring success and it was amazing to see so many of you popping by the Scalextric marquee. We had a Micro Scalextric layout and 1:32 scale ARC Air layout, which both proved to be incredibly popular. The ARC Air layout was used for a competition where the fastest lap of each day would take home one of our impressive ARC Pro sets.

Festival goers enjoyed a wide variety of entertainment from musical acts to celebrity chefs and of course plenty of cars. Jools Holland, the Kaiser Chiefs and Clean Bandit are just a small selection of the musical lineup CarFest North had to offer. Dick and Dom brought the crowds to the Kid’s Kingdom as they proved to be a hit for the festival and when it came to the festival's name sake it did not disappoint, with an array of car displays and a 2.2km track that circled the entire event.
It was a fantastic weekend raising money for a range of UK’s children’s charities including the BBC’s Children in Need and we at Scalextric were honoured to be a part of the festivities.
Scalextric looks forward to doing it all again for CarFest South, where there will be music from Boy George & Culture Club, The Human League and the Kaiser Chiefs. Plus, you will have the chance to celebrate ‘Grand Prix Through the Ages’ with the brand new Motorsport Paddock. The event will take place on the 23rd-25th August and we hope to see you there.
