Disney/Pixar partnership will see firm launch products based on characters from the new movie.

Scalextric has created Micro Scalextric and Scalextric Start race sets, which are due to launch from July this year, alongside the release of Cars 2 in cinemas from July 22nd.

Paul Chandler, Scalextric marketing manager, commented: "We are thrilled to be teaming up with Disney/Pixar again for Cars 2. Just like Scalextric, Cars 2 is pure entertainment for all the family.

"Fans of any age can experience the excitement of taking part in a race, pitting themselves against Lightning McQueen or his latest rival."

The Micro Set features Lightning McQueen and Nigel Gearsley, the iconic British racer, which can be raced on the UK, Japanese and Italian World Grand Prix circuits. The set is complete with a selection of backdrops, which allow racers to recreate scenes from the movie’s World Grand Prix.

The Scalextric Start set allows racers to put Lightning McQueen against his new arch rival Francesco Bernoulli in the race for the title. The set gives players to race in hot pursuit on nine alternative track layouts – including one in the shape of Lightning McQueen’s iconic number 95.

Cars can also be purchased separately.
