Ross Brawn today took hold of the very first model of the new BRAWN GP Scalextric Limited Edition slot car before it races onto the shelves in June. The beautifully presented 1:32 scale car is the first of many exciting products to be released by Scalextric throughout 2010.
The new Limited Edition pack features the car raced by Jenson Button at last year’s Brazilian Grand Prix where he claimed his title as the 2009 FIA Formula One World Champion, driving the Brawn GP team to further success as the Constructors’ Champions in only their first competitive season..
Scalextric’s ongoing work with the team which is now known as MERCEDES GP PETRONAS, provides them with the image rights to represent Nico Rosberg and seven-times World Champion, and motor racing legend, Michael Schumacher. This continues Scalextric’s association of working with the very best in Formula One, including a continuing partnership with Vodafone McLaren Mercedes.
Paul Chandler, Scalextric Marketing Manager, comments: “Brawn GP took the racing world by storm by winning both Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships in their first and only competitive year in 2009. Scalextric are proud to be able to continue the exclusive partnership with MERCEDES GP PETRONAS and we are looking forward to the release of some exciting products over the coming months.”
Priced at £44.99, fans will need to hurry as only 4,500 of the Limited Edition presentation packs will ever be available worldwide!
