Slot Car Photos
- You may be aware of the fabulous photos of Doug Johnson, or fotodoug as he’s known, but here’s a fantastic way to get a big fix of his work, all in one place.
- Rally-Sprint Proxy Event Jan-Feb 2021 – Info & Sign-up
At the end of January and through February, Worthing HO Racing will be expanding their socially-distant mail-in proxy racing to a 1:32 scale format – the WHO Racing Winter Rally-Sprint 2021.
The event will take place over twelve ‘special stages’ mostly running on Scalextric Sport, Scalextric/SCX Classic and Ninco – but there will also be a taste of some off-road track and a small winter-themed routed ‘super-special’ stage.
- Team Slot Ford Escort MKII RS2000 X-Pack Martini – Limited Ediiton. This UK-exclusive limited edition car was announced by Staffs Slot Cars UK last year and is finally on its way from Spain, along with two Escort X-Pack road cars in Daytona Yellow (TMS13001) and Venetian Red (TMS13002).
I don’t often put anything in the Digest without a descriptive category heading, but this video defies all my attempts to apply a snappy title. It’s got Range Rovers, British Majors with moustaches and double barelled surnames, and mud, lots of mud. In spite of that, it’s quite interesting, especially if you like watching people pushing and pulling cars through the jungle whilst smoking, in the 1970s . If you don’t like this sort of fantastic, educational material, well don’t worry, you’re probably not alone.
But who will be the first to produce a slot car recreation of the journey through the Darien Gap?
