Family Fortunes host and TV personality Vernon Kay showcased his Scalextric skills at Toy Fair this week.

Kay took to the tracks to test out the Scalextric Arc One set, taking on members of Hornby's Scalextric team.

He explained that he used to play Scalextric a lot when he was younger, and was keen to have a go having kept many of his old sets in his attic at home.

The Arc One allows users to wirelessly create and manage races and Kay, likely too tall to enjoy life-sized cars, deemed the tech as “seriously cool”.
