Welcome to the OnTracks Scalextric shop

In 1952 a small company called Minimodels Limited introduced a range of metal bodied model racing cars which contained a unique type of clockwork motor. The inventor of these cars was Mr B Francis and the trade mark known as SCALEX.

By 1956 the novelty of such cars was flagging and so Francis began to seek new ways to update the product. Whilst witnessing a demonstration of electrically operated cars running on a track Francis instantly recognised the potential for his own products and modified his cars to take an electric motor. He also devisied a rubber based track system with two parallel grooves in which metal rails carried electric current thus guiding the cars by means of a \"gimbal\" wheel suspended beneath them.
Over the last 50 years, this system has developed into the Scalextric range of 1:32 scale cars and accessories - allowing you to Race for Real!
