SlotRacer Newsround - 6 August 2022


There's plenty of slot car product news around at the moment - and although most of it is included in the Slotracer Digest each Monday, it really needs to be shared on the forum too. Instead of a lot of brief posts - or updates to old threads - I'm going to condense the news into one weekly thread. In fact, it can just be copied and posted from the draft Digest that Jason and I are working on - as below. Some weeks, it might have a looser format and bigger pictures. It'll never be a comprehensive list, so if you'd like to add anything you've seen or heard, feel free to post it below!

Here are the latest cars to arrive and news to break over the past few days - with links to more details, either on the forum, other websites or Facebook posts...
