 WEYBRIDGE, Surrey, UK -- Top Gear presenter James May and and 400 volunteers pieced together 20,000 sections of track over the original 2.75-mile Brooklands circuit -setting the world record for the Longest slot car racing track (longest Scalextric track).

Once the track was finished, local residents and museum volunteers raced against a team of Scalextric Club members and enthusiasts.

   The track, which opened in 1907 and closed in 1937, was the world's first purpose-built motorsport venue. The team had to cross a river and roads to complete the circuit.

    May was attempting the world record for the Longest slot car racing track as part of his new television show, James May's Toy Stories.

    The previous Guinness world record for the Longest slot car racing track measured 1.59 miles and was built in Berlin on 5 October 2007.
