Scalextric C3896A Ford GT40 1968 – Gulf Triple Pack - Limited Edition

1968 saw Ford continue their successful attempts at the world’s greatest and oldest active endurance race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. 2018 marks 50 years of Ford’s third successive win, and the first for a car sponsored by Gulf Oil, who’s famous blue and orange colours would soon become as synonymous with motorsport as the race itself.

Despite two of the three entered cars failing to finish, the winning machine of Rodriguez and Bianchi triumphed by a number of laps over the second and third place Porsches, with the race proving to be one of attrition with only sixteen classified finishers.

This set combines all three of the Gulf entered cars, as a perfect way to commemorate the first win at Le Mans for both Gulf and the Ford GT40 MKI, with the MKIV Ford and the MKII being victorious in both 1967 and 1966 respectively.

Race: LeMans 24Hrs
#9: Pedro Rodriguer & Lucien Bianchi
#10: Paul Hawkins & David Hobbs

Scalextric C3946 Ferrari 412P Brands Hatch 1967

Scalextric C3946 Ferrari 412P Bonds Hatch 1967 7th, drivers Richard Attwood and David Piper
The Ferrari 412P was a “customer version” of the 330 P3 race car, which was built for independent teams. One of these teams was Maranello Concessionaires, who purchased the 412P designated 0854.
Racing in the iconic colours of this famous race team, Richard Attwood and David Piper finished the 6 Hours of Brands Hatch in 7th place, valiantly driving the car throughout the 500km distance. Ultimately, though, they were unable to match the pace of the winning Chaparral.



Scalextric C3949 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 1986 No.93 - Red

The Chevrolet Monte Carlo was first produced in 1970 as a two-door coupe. It has since been through six generations, last rolling off the production line in 2007. The 1986 Chevvy Monte Carlo was the fourth generation of the popular car, which had a number of variations from previous iterations.



Scalextric C3969 McLaren F1 GTR - Gulf Edition

1995 Le Mans 24hr, drivers Mark Blundell, Ray Bellm and Maurizio Sandro Sala

Having returned to endurance racing at Le Mans 1994, Gulf Executive Martin Allerton made the popular decision to take the blue and orange of Gulf Racing into GT racing for the 1995 season.

Until then, Gulf had been racing with the Kremer Porsche, that is, until Allerton met with ‘gentleman driver’ Ray Bellm who had recently persuaded McLaren to build a racing variant of the F1 Sports car. So impressed was Allerton that he signed the deal even before McLaren designer Gordon Murray had completed the designs for the new car.

With fellow ‘gentleman driver’ Thomas Bscher purchasing the first off the production line, Bellm snapped up the second and won the BPR Global GT title with Gulf Racing in 1996.
