40 years ago this autumn, the first episode of the beloved TV show Knight Rider aired – introducing the world to David Hasslehoff as Michael Knight (“the world’s greatest role” according to the actor), and the talking car K.I.T.T. To celebrate this momentous occasion, buckle up for the latest Scalextric battle with the brand new Back to the Future vs Knight Rider Race Set.
Combining stylish retro Scalextric branding with the superbly detailed vehicles – K.I.T.T. is styled with iconic pulsing red strobe light – the set is packed with an array of amazing features rigged with cool new functions.
“Knight Rider’s become a legendary series that still lives on,” Hasslehoff said about the iconic show in The Times. “The car was souped up and they would grease up the tyres so they would slip around the curves. They would say: ‘Action, go for it David!’ and I used to go: ‘Are you kidding me?’ I’d just take off!”
Now you can too with the Back to the Future vs Knight Rider Race Set, with the patented magnatraction system that helps the car to stay on the track, with powerful magnets in the chassis provide extra traction and downforce, reducing the amount of skidding and crashing; take the opportunity to knock your opponent off the track or try to avoid a side-on collision at the two straight hairpin track side swipe; finally, dodge the ‘danger zone’ to avoid full impact or try to knock your opponent off the track at the dual lane crossover with yellow chevrons. Action, go for it!
