Fads come and go, but some things are timeless. Slot car racing falls into the latter category.

With origins dating back to 1912, slot car racing has well and truly withstood the tests of time. It was in the 1950s that slot car racing really gained traction, and by the 1960s even celebrities like Elvis Presley were hooked.

Nowadays, it is still a much-loved hobby among children and adults alike.

So, what is it about slot car racing that makes it so enduring?

1) Slot car racing is for everyone

Irrespective of whether you are six or 86, the activity appeals to all ages and abilities. At Race Party, the game can be tailored to players, from young kids having their first go to seasoned hobbyists attempting to break the lap record. Moreover, slot car racing doesn’t require any pre-existing skills, so anyone can have a crack and refine their technique as they play.

2) It’s great for families, friends and corporates alike

When the weekend rolls around and the kids are feeling restless, a session at the slot car track is the perfect solution. Aside from being a family-friendly outing, slot car racing is also a great social game for friends and a fantastic corporate team-building exercise to motivate and engage staff.

3) It fulfills the fantasy

Many slot car venues use models of actual race cars and circuits inspired by real tracks, which makes the experience extra exciting for motorsport enthusiasts. At Race Party, participants can compete on one of two state-of-the-art tracks, Albert Park and Monaco, featuring 40m of twists and turns, eight lanes and two 360 degree loops. The winners then celebrate their glory on the podium.

4) It’s simply fun

Slot car racing takes you into the fast lane, creating an entertaining and challenging atmosphere to test your skills in a high speed arena. Once the action begins, the excitement in the air becomes palpable as the cars race towards the finish line and the commentator revs up the spectators. The only downfall is that it’s addictive.
