Just in time for Father’s Day, Slot Mods Raceways launched its Super Sport Raceway, a fixed 4’ x 8’ slot car track with hand painted surfaces and furniture grade wood accents.

Priced at $2,295 ($200 extra for track support legs) the Super Sport Raceway is the second in a series of more affordable tracks from Slot Mods. Its first track in the series, the limited “Origins” raceway, featured hand painted track surfaces, infield grass, and tire barriers. Designed in the spirit of raceways from the past.  Each track was individually signed, numbered and sold out quickly.  

“We wanted to give the guy who yearns for one of our tracks and doesn’t have the space or budget the opportunity to relive their childhood and fulfill their Walter Mitty racing dreams,” said Slot Mods USA founder and creative director, David Beattie.  “Our goal has and always will be to produce the finest quality product with unparalleled attention to detail while creating an experience that will leave you not wanting to put the controller down.”

Slot Mods Super Sport Raceway is configured to be equidistant in length, have tight and challenging corners and feature professional grade controllers for the more competitive racer who wants to brake late and accelerate hard out of a turn.  The Super Sport Raceway comes with two 1/32 scale, analog slot cars, a 1969 Ford Mustang and a 1970 Chevrolet Camaro both in liveries made famous in the Trans Am racing series of the late ‘60’s and early ‘70’s.  The track surface is carefully hand painted to replicate skid marks; the safety curbs are painted black and white and the retaining wall is made out of PVC.  The foundation for the track is made out of 13 layers of clear-coated birch veneer with LED accent lighting underneath the track.
