Additional Info About Kevan
Bio:
I Raced R/C cars since '78 and knew two or three of the slot car guys who used to come to our club.
I always thought slot cars weren't real racing unlike our R/C cars (little did I know) and never had the inclination to visit the Manx Slot Car Club.
One day we were running our IoM championships in the old Summerland complex in Douglas and remember walking past the slot car club room, the door was open but I walked past noticing the big track.
Wind forward to 2015, I got in touch with the MSCC secretary to visit the slot car guys with a view to getting both clubs together in one building. I'd never driven a slot car before, was given use of a few cars and controller, loved it...and never went back to the R/C club.
Having used a pistol grip radio for the R/C cars I was used to using my left hand for throttle and right hand for steering and this is how I raced slot cars for about a year.
However I'm right handed and wondered if I'd be naturally quicker with my better hand, it took a few weeks to get up to speed but would now struggle to race left handed again, yes I can drive quicker right handed.

Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 type 256

The Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 was made between 1938–1952, versions of which were entered in the Monte Carlo Rally and Mille Miglia between 1939 - 1952

Resin printed, chassis printed in CF-PETG

I have two chassis made, one IL the other SW.  The SW setup will need narrow tyres, 8mm.

I don't enjoy detailing at all but I do try to make it look good.

...this is on my 'favourite cars' list, a beauty.
