These fascinating photos tell the story of 60 years of Scalextric which grew from humble beginnings into a British institution. <br />
<br />
When enterprising Freddie Francis launched the car racing toy in 1957 at his factory in Havant, Hants, he could never have known they would still be a household name 60 years later.<br />

Today, Scalextric are produced by English toy maker Hornby Hobbies and demand for the much-loved slot cars is still as strong as ever.
