Slot Car Magazine September 2019


Marc and Ric have been busy over the summer, bringing us issue 51 of Slot Car Magazine - a magazine for racers, collectors and builders. Produced by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, written by contributors from all over the world, covering scenics, kit building, driving, reviews and of course racing.

PROXY MUSINGS. Gary Cannell on the art of driving somebody else’s car without hurting it.

KING OF THE ROAD. Ric Woods investigates the Harrel slot car track system and discovers a quality build.

COMPETITON PAGE. It’s the Formula 1 giveaway courtesy of Slot Racing Company. Really, just send us an email and you could be a lucky winner!

A MÉNAGE OF ESCORTS. When Tony Di Pastena said he was in need of an escort, we were a little worried. Then he told us he just had to have three...

A HARD ROAD TO TRAVEL. There’s nothing more exciting than a new track system, especially as we were sent a Policar set to test in the offices at SCM.

THE WORLD OF DILWORTH. Strange lights, metallic craft and little green men. Maybe Mulder and Scully are still looking into the members of West Hamley.

As always, the magazine is available from Pendle Slot Racing here for £4.50. There will also be some copies for sale at the Havant Scalextric Fair and Fun Day this Sunday (22 September). The ebook is available from Lulu here for £1.30.
