Scalextric Seat, a closer look

Seat Leon WTCC

Reference No: C2704
Class: Road & Rally

Race 9 of the 2006 World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) fell to race victor Jordi Gené for SEAT Sport. Gené had a great start from the front row. On lap 6 Gené was clearly closing on the lead man and reduced the gap to just 0.198 of a second over the following three laps. The Spaniard didn't let the opportunity go to waste; squeezing through to take the win at the Curitiba circuit in Brazil.

Race picture: The Scalextric car is based on this car. Shown here are team mates Muller and Thompson in identically liveried cars.

The Scalextric model
The Scalextric model replicates the car driven by Jordi Gene at the first race of the WTCC season held at Monza, Italy. The Scalextric livery is exact in almost every respect and displays just how good a Scalextric livery is compared to our competitors. The quality of livery painting and sponsor graphics is of the highest order. Hornby Scalextric is the only manufacturer to offer the more desirable current livery of the 2006 WTCC season car.

The Monza 2006 livery shows the correct Telefonica, Betandwin and ADVAN sponsorship graphics of the 2006 WTCC car.
