Giant Scalextric Track and Slot Car Racing Hire and Rentals


Our Giant Scalextric (slot car racing) set allows up to 4 players to race at any one time using the mini racing cars. The Giant Scalextric track comes complete with a race marshal and a computerised lap timing system to work out exactly who is the fastest driver or team at your event. Race results are shown on the flat screen monitor and the track is illuminated by mini spotlights.

The Giant Scalextric track can be hired for a whole host of indoor events including Corporate Events, Promotions, Exhibitions, Company Family Fundays, Evening Events, Themed Events, Black tie Dinners, Christmas Parties, Parties, Weddings and just about anything else!

Our Giant Scalextric hire service is based on the Surrey/Sussex border but rentals are available throughout the Southeast to Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire, Essex, London, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire as well as further afield. Giant Scalextric hire is a great activity to use at themed events such as those with a motorsport twist or even for James Bond or 007 Nights as the Scalextric can be operated with Bond Aston Martins and life-size spy cut-outs.

Giant Scalextric hire is covered under our £10 million PLI policy and comes with full risk assessments. As with all of Altitude’s hire activities, the Giant Track is fully PAT tested for electrical safety and all rentals come with staff to oversee the activity during your event. Our 4 lane Giant Scalextric track is 12ft x 6ft in size and we need around 3ft of clear space around each edge to allow players to stand. The Scalextric tracks must be set up inside or under marquee cover (with solid flooring) and require a mains power supply. The Giant Scalextric tracks are transported in 3 or 4 large sections, each one measuring 4ft x 6ft so we need to be able to gain access for these. Please notify us in advance if there will be any difficulty with this which includes long distances, narrow doorways and stairs.

No, it can’t.

Can the Giant Scalextric be used indoors?

The Giant Scalextric is suitable for Indoor events. Please see specifications tab for unit and space dimensions.  The unit is large and awkward to carry so please let us know whether there are long distances to carry it or any steps/stairs/lifts/doorways etc to navigate with the equipment as complicated setup routes may increase set up time or require additional staff which will increase the hire costs.

Do I need to supply anything or does the Giant Scalextric come with everything it needs?

Other than providing an area to set up on, we supply everything required to run the game, including the cars, screen, cables and operator.

How long does the Giant Scalextric take to set up?

Depending on the ease of access, the Giant Scalextric will take our staff approximately an hour to an hour and a half to set up.


Does the Giant Scalextric come with someone to run the activity?

Yes, our staff (CRB/DBS checked and 1st aid trained) will remain with the game throughout your event. They will give all players a briefing of how the game works and run each game for you, recording scores where necessary.

How safe is the Giant Scalextric?

Sessions are run by fully trained, experienced staff member (staff are first aid trained and CRB/DBS checked). We also operate with £10 million public liability insurance and have full risk assessments (copies of which are available on request). All electrical items are PAT tested for electrical safety.


How much does it cost to hire Giant Scalextric?

We will tailor-make each Giant Scalextric hire quote to the specifics of an enquiry. The Giant Scalextric hire cost is dependent on factors such as your location, length of hire, date of hire and whether or not any other pieces of equipment are being hired for the same event, etc.

Are there any additional costs?

The quote we send to you is all-inclusive so there are no hidden extras to be wary of.

How do I book?

Give us a call or send an e-mail and we can check your desired date(s) for availability and give you a quote. When you are ready to confirm, we will send out a booking form, complete with the booking terms and conditions to check over.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the part your team played in making our event in September a huge success.

Mark and Luke did a fantastic job – they were like ninjas – swooped in, set up, and got up and running before I’d barely even noticed.  There was certainly some competitive racing going on!

Look forward to working with again in the future.
