CLOSED: Win a Real FX radio-controlled racing game worth £100, plus a VIP race day

Race at home and then watch the pros for real

Real FX Racing and Honda BTCC hospitality competition



REAL FX is perhaps best described as a cross between slot-car racing (such as Scalextric) and radio-controlled cars, with a splash of video game technology.

As with Scalextric, you build a racetrack out of individual sections. Each car is fitted with infrared sensors that read the track 200 times a second and boasts “artificial intelligence”, allowing it to drive around the circuit on its own. Add a second vehicle to the mix and you’re set for a multiplayer, human v computer race with the “slotless” format allowing racers to overtake anywhere on track.

Virtual hazards, from tyre blowouts to oil spills, can add a number of wild cards to the track battle.

We have three sets to give away, plus, for one of the winners, a VIP British touring car championship hospitality package with Honda Yuasa Racing.


The prizes

We have three Real FX Racing sets to give away, each worth £100, Visit for more information, and in case you don’t win you can find it for sale at Argos.
