The Scalextric banner will race with the son of multiple world-champion John Surtees, throughout the 20-race championship season.
Surtees Jnr said: “It’s great that Scalextric have continued to put their trust in me by sponsoring me again this season; let’s just hope I can do as well as Hamilton and have my own car made into a Scalextric model in the near future.”
Frank Martin, Hornby’s CEO said: “Henry was fantastic in 2007. His debut season turned a lot of heads and there are big things expected of this young star’s future. His move to Manor Competition is great news and we are delighted to announce that we will continue our sponsorship of Henry in 2008.”
"Linking up with the prestigious Formula Renault UK and Henry - who looks a bright prospect for British motorsport - provides us with an excellent opportunity to promote our brand to both young and old audiences alike," Martin said.
