Event description

Description

Get your engines revving for the F1 inspired Selfie Slot Car Racing Championship, taking place at Flitwick Library during half term 13 to 17 February 2018.

Join us to make a slot-car replica of your own car between 13 to 16 February and then take it to the track to race it at Flitwick’s own Grand Prix, on Saturday 17 February, for the chance of being crowned Selfie Slot Car Racing Champion 2018!

Paying homage to the 1970’s model-making heyday, Selfie Slot Car Racing Championship involves selfie sticks, glue guns, CCTV cameras and plenty of Scalextric to transform Flitwick Library into a Silverstone look-alike.

Selfie Slot Car Workshops: Tuesday 13 to Friday 16 February

Book a one-hour session to make the slot-car replica of your own car, ready to be raced on Race Day on Saturday 17 February 2018.

In the workshop, you'll start with the ultimate selfie, having photos taken of you in your car with a very long selfie stick. The photos will then get sent to our car-shrinking expert, ready to be made into a Scalextric car. Finally, you'll work with our Selfie Slot Car Team to complete the Scalextric version of your own car ready for Race Day.
