Team Slot Alpine A310 V6 GTP Le Mans 1978
#1

   

Team Slot TS-12802 - Alpine A310 V6 GTP - Le Mans 1978

There is some excitement brewing about a new Team Slot car due to be released soon. There have been some very nice Alpines in the Team Slot line-up over the years - mostly rally versions - but this car promises to be a perfect partner to the previous A310 Le Mans GTP release. Steve at Staffs Slot Cars - Team Slot's UK distributor - sent us these pictures of samples of the bodywork. Pictures of the complete car will be posted next week.

         

The two Team Slot models of the A310 Le Mans GTP are of the same car, but different liveries - Alpine employee Bernard Décure entered his Alpine A310 GTP in the Le Mans 24 hours in both 1977 and 1978. Team Slot have already produced the red and blue Poisson Dieppois #87 car from 1977 (TS-12801). The car qualified 55th and retired from the race after 137 laps with a water leak. Returning in 1978 with the blue and white #73 livery plus Behar sponsorship, Guy de Saint-Pierre and Marcel Mignot sadly failed to qualify for the race. However, it wasn't all bad news for Alpine - Renault finally won the race with the mighty Renault-Alpine A442B sports prototype.

Recent Team Slot Alpines have featured the TS12 long can 22k rpm motor in an inline configuration, a brass pinion and improved plastic crown gear in a 9/27 ratio, aluminium rear wheels, brass bearings and a sprung guide. RRP is £54.99.
