On the right side of the start/finish line are a pole with start-lights, a grandstand for the race organizer, and a pit stop with oil drums, a fire extinguisher and a tool rack. The barricades bear the Octan logo.

The two racers share the same design and feature spring suspensions and large rear spoilers. They are labelled with the numbers "2" and "4".

Among the six included minifigures are the two race drivers (including Eddie Octane), two race crew members (one with a walkie talkie and one with a checkered flag) as well as a male and a female spectator.
