FEATURES
18 HEAD TO HEAD
Narrow tyres and lots of power don’t
sound a good combination, but can
a modern slot car make them work
together? We put two versions of
the classic Maserati 250F to the test
and compare them for looks and
performance.
24 REVIEW 1960S SLOT CAR BOOK
They say if you were there you can’t
remember the 1960s. One man who
can is Oliver Brandt and he has
produced the biggest slot car book
we have ever seen. We spend many
happy hours recalling the slot icons,
and discover several almost unknown
cars and parts as well.
28 SLOT FESTIVAL 2015
The annual gathering for
manufacturers, retailers, racers,
builders, clubs, and anyone interested
in slot cars. Everything old and new
on show to see, test, or buy. What
were the highlights?
40 AUSTRALIAN UPDATE
Our friends ‘down under’ are possibly
the most pro-active supporters of
Scalextric, and this year their efforts
have hit the jackpot with many new cars.
Sir Jack Brabham and V8 Supercars
are well known around the world,
but what about a re-issue of the fi rst
Scalextric special editions?
44 POLICAR LOTUS 72 DEVELOPMENT
After creating so much excitement
when it was announced, the Lotus 72 is
taking a long time to reach the shops.
We fi nd out why perfection takes
so long.
58 REVIEW SCALEXTRIC BOOK
Now in its 8th Edition, the Scalextric
Ultimate Guide has doubled in size
thanks to new co-author Adrian
Norman. We look closely to see if
anything has been missed out, but
get carried away with the hundreds
of colour pictures.
WORKSHOPS
12
FERRARI 500 MONDIAL
How we build a classic slot car for a
classic event. This one has real wire
wheels and a quickly refurbished
bodyshell. Building is one thing, but
what happened when we got it onto
a track at one of the biggest classic
events on the calendar?
36 CHAPARRAL 2K INDIANAPOLIS
Ace car builder Phil Insull tries the latest
Ostorero kit of the Indianapolis winning
Chaparral 2K and shows us how to put it
together for a stunning model.
