Scalextric

James May subjects traditional toys to supersize challenges. Here, he attempts to build a three-mile-long Scalextric track at Brooklands in Surrey.

James May continues his quest to show what is possible with old-fashioned toys by using them on a scale never seen before.

James attempts to build the biggest Scalextric track in the world, nearly three miles long, on the site of Britain's oldest grand prix track at Brooklands in Surrey. The track will have to go through people's gardens, over ponds and rivers and even negotiate a business park. Who will win the race of the century, the plucky locals or the team of Scalextric experts?
