I got my 6 year old (no self interest whatsoever :wink: ) one of these for Christmas.

Having had a TCR and a scalextric BITD and having thought the former was pretty useless, I wasn't sure what to expect

I have to say that progress in this case is a good thing. We had four people racing round the track, overtaking like mad. It's absolutely brilliant with 3 or more drivers. We had to prize the adults off it to let the kids have a go. Suprisingly little damage to the cars as well considering the smashes they've seen.

I can thoroughly recommend one, and just keep telling yourself and your wife it's for the kids...though apparently she did take a picture of four adults hogging the thing.

I got a foot long leather tassle key-ring (just think of an S&M cat'o'nine-tails whip type thing, but for your keys). The reason? It was in the Mulberry sale!

I'll get a pic up asap as it has to be seen to be believed. It'll be impossible to lose my keys with this dangling on the end of it, but I will probably get funny looks from security every time I go through the airport x-ray machines
