Victory Lap
Victory Lap Slot Car Racing

If you’ve ever wanted to race a fast sports car like a Porsche Boxster, Audi TT, or Dodge Viper, here’s your chance! Drive some practice laps and then run a one-minute race against 3 other drivers. But watch out! If your car deslots you’ll be out of the race.
Slot car racing is great hands-on interactive fun for the whole family. It can involve not only the racing itself but also car building and modification, track layout design, race organization, mechanical and electrical principles, and experience with competition, sportsmanship, strategy, team building, and other valuable practical skills.
The track will be in action all day long, and, from time to time we’ll pause the racing for a few minutes to demonstrate some super-fast slot cars driven by a championship-winning driver. You won’t believe how fast these cars go!
Fun for ages 5 and up!! Not just for kids – moms and dads will have a blast – and maybe bring back some fond childhood memories, too!!

Victory Lap is pleased to be a part of the WHO Convention and we invite everyone attending to come by and get in on the fun!
