This custom-built slot car track was commissioned by Formula 1 and built by Slot Mods Raceways, based in Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A. Built out of wood to 1:32 scale to an original design, it was shipped to every Formula 1 Grand Prix during the 2018 season and used by patrons of the Formula 1 Paddock Club. Designed for two cars to be used and raced against each other at one time, the track has built-in electronic lap timing and on-track cameras, raising the stakes and adding a little competition to the fun!

Slot Mods has built tracks for both corporations and private individuals over the last ten years, including Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Audi, and Toyota. Hand-built in nearly every respect, each track is a labour of love crafted by artists and takes roughly three to six months to complete and costs well over $100,000, depending on the size and detail. This track features hand-painted race fans, bespoke buildings, foliage lining the circuit, and much more. It is incredible to behold, even more so to enjoy. The track can be disassembled into two modular sections for easy shipment, and Slot Mods can be further commissioned to provide after-sales service or installation should it be required.

Proceeds from this sale will benefit the Reaching the Last Mile Fund, inspired by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed’s global health campaign to eradicate preventable diseases, a joint initiative with the Bill Gates Foundation. His Highness is dedicated to eradicating preventable diseases affecting the world’s poorest and most vulnerable communities in the developing world, and His Highness has previously donated more than $250,000,000 since 2010. The campaign is focused on eradicating diseases in Ethiopia, Sudan, Chad, Mali, Niger, Senegal, and Yemen.

Numerous drivers and other important figures in the world of Formula 1 have used this slot car track at races last season, and purchasing this incredible track will add your name to that list and give back to a worthy cause near and dear to Formula 1.
