Whether you’re racing slot car Minis from The Italian Job or James Bond’s latest car from Spectre it’s a wire tangling job to get up and put your car back on the track.

However, Scalextric’s new ARC AIR system not only does away with cables with its wireless controllers but uses an app to track lap times and trigger weather, fuel, tyre damage and oil spills.

The only down side it that it’s not out until January 15th, so maybe you should save your Christmas spending until then to be able to compare it to the likes of Anki Overdrive and Real FX.
