Enthusiasts from as far away as London and Suffolk attended.

Dealers sold models ranging from the most recent releases to those dating back to the 1950s.

A member of the cricket club’s committee, Mr Roger Barker, who is also a member of the National Scalextric Collectors’ Club, organised the event.

Mr Barker (48) of High Street, Collingham, fell in love with the slot car racing game as a youngster after visits to Mr Ken Coyne’s toy shop on Middlegate, Newark.

Mr Barker said he hoped a similar event could be held next year, possibly on a larger scale involving other motoring interests such as custom-made and classic cars.

He said the club wanted to use its facilities to hold events that generated a community spirit in the village and surrounding district.

“We want to make the club more of a village focal point,” he said.
