News Slot Car Magazine May 2019 Issue 49

Slot Car Magazine May 2019 Issue 49

I see now just reading the Slot Car Magazine May 2019 Issue 49 that SlotRacer Online gets a mention in the opening credits.

Hopefully this will bring more people to the forums. Would be a chance to do a poll or similar asking where they saw/heard about SlotRacer Online.

Quick snip of the Contents page, not entire snip.

Slot Racer Online business cards were also handed out with every magazine sold at the UK Slot Car Festival - which was quite a few Sun

Marc and Ric can be a bit bashful when it comes to blowing their own trumpets about Slot Car Magazine. A bit like Slot Racer Online, the magazine is put together by enthusiasts for enthusiasts and on a not-for-profit basis. There is no subscription and the publishing model is good value and sustainable - the July issue will be the 50th.

The paper & ink magazine is sold via Pendles for £4.50 and also by the Slot Car Magazine crew at most of the UK slot car shows and swapmeets. It is also available as an ebook for the ridiculously good price of £1.30 (or local equivalents). Back issues are bundled into big ebooks for even better value. Here's the latest issue Johnno mentioned...

Slot Car Magazine

Slot Car Magazine has been selling all over the world, which means we could feature a much broader spectrum of subjects and skills than we had first envisaged. 

That the magazine is still around after four years is as much a testament to our contributors as it is to anything Marc Abbott and Ric Woods have done. For this book, we each made a list of our favourite features from past issues. Where our choices coincided, an article was immediately ‘in’. The remainder were decided on after a frank exchange of views and only as a last resort did we ever engage in arm-wrestling. 

If you are a regular reader, I hope we have included some of your favourites too. If you are new to the magazine, I hope this will whet your appetite for
