MRE website and slot cars

UK slot car retailer MRE have extended their Club Price Discount scheme to members of SlotRacer Online – offering a 15% discount off the RRP of cars, spares and accessories on the MRE website: www.mre.co.uk

How does the discount work? On each product listing there are three prices available – a standard MRE Mail Price, the Club Price and a Star Price. The Club Price gives 15% discount on the RRP. This is extended to 20% by spending £500 in the previous 12 months. Full details are here: www.mre.co.uk/about_us/pricing

The example above shows the RRP and three price points for the 1/24 scale Carrera Pink Pig Porsche 911 RSR.

How do I register for the Club Price Discount? When you register for an MRE account, you’ll be able to add your SlotRacer Online membership details. The MRE team will then verify you are an active member here and unlock the Club Price discount.

It’s as easy as that.

A very big thank you to Gary at MRE for adding SlotRacer Online to the MRE Club Price Discount scheme

The Library

Published by JasonB on Aug 1, 2019 in Features, Media, Updates

The SlotRacer library is a growing collection of catalogues and magazines dating from the very beginnings of the hobby, right through to the present day. We have everything from official brand catalogues, and brochures, to independent periodicals, and magazines covering a wide range of slot racing, and modelling subjects.

These are the magazines that have shaped and promoted our hobby for 60 years, and we’ll be adding more to the collection regularly.

So if you have a little time on your hands, why not pop over to the library, pick out a publication, and settle down for a read?
