Those crazy Germans; mayonnaise on chips, leather shorts on grown men, Hasselhoff in the charts and now go-karting in a briefcase.Although our initial enthusiasm was curbed when we realised this wasn't a Scooterman-esque ride-on briefcase, we did perk up when we discovered it actually contains a fully laid out, mini version of that childhood favourite: Scalextric.In its considerably scaled down state it still manages to cram in a couple of hair-raising hairpins, a tight S-bend and two collision inducing cross-overs. Two mini Fernando Alonsos are included along with a nine volt battery, good for five hours of diddy-racing pleasure.We were all set to order one, until we noticed the decidedly full-scale price.
