How about some Ascari toys?
Banbury based supercar manufacturer has set its sights on a new race track by venturing into the world of slot car racing. The launch of the Ascari A10 and KZ1R slot car from NINCO, manufacturers of the ultimate 1:32 slot racing system is on its way this year.
From mid-2007 all slot car enthusiasts across the world lusting over an Ascari A10 or the KZ1R GT3 race car can add a 1:32 scale model to their collection for a fraction of the price of its road-going counterpart.
"We have experienced considerable excitement from potential customers of the Ascari slot cars." said Andy Coles, Export Manager, NINCO. "Enthusiasts are waiting with baited breath to see one of the worlds fastest and most exclusive sports cars hit the slot car tracks."
Jason Cairns, Financial Controller, Ascari explains, "Slot car enthusiasts who have seen the Ascari KZ1R on the GT3 circuit in UK and Europe can now recreate the race atmosphere in their own front room."
The Ascari A10 and KZ1R will be compatible with the NINCO NDigital track system that enables up to eight cars to race on a circuit at the same time. The cars will be available in over 25 countries in specialist professional hobby stores.
Jason adds, "The interest in the Ascari brand has been fantastic, we are continuing to raise our racing profile and are really pleased to be considered by NINCO for inclusion in their state of the art slot car system."
