Rally Scalextric is amazing

Apologies if this is old news to some of you, but we've just discovered WRC Scalextric and it's amazing.

A combination of regular Scalextric and lovingly crafted train models, remote control fans create long special stages that are like Colin McRae Rally brought to life.

Just how long it takes to create these environments is anybody's guess - months? years? - but like their real-life equivalents, it makes WRC Scalextric a more enjoyable spectacle than its circuit racing counterpart, where the cars often move so fast as to be invisible.
