just watching reruns of the British 1960's tv show The Avengers, famous for the Emma Peel character played by Diana Rigg. In the first full episode after the Emma Peel character left, and was replaced by the Tara King character, the episode "Game" starts with a small 1/32 scale Scalextric oval set with one F-1 car (lotus?) that speeds up and eventually crashes. Now to finish watching and see if there are more slot car scenes.

Slot cars were everywhere. Hard to believe there never was a slot racing superhero. "The continuing adventures of

Slot Man and Trigger Boy. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! Someone flew off in the bank. Able to marshall three cars

at once! Faster than a speeding G-7 car! Guardian of honest slot racers everywhere! Hunting down cheaters with

his trusty pal Trigger Boy! "

Please remember the time frame - the side kick would have been "Thumb Boy"

I thought there was the clip somewhere on here, but haven't found it yet.

 

Here's a discussion of movies with slot cars:

and some more clips, from a French forum

Ernie- the slot car scene is in the very beginning of the episode. That is the only slot car scene in the episode. Still cool though. The best slot car scene in a 1960's tv show is the huge 4 lane home set in the Batman TV show.
