REVIEWS
34 HEAD TO HEAD LOTUS 72
We do compare two cars but the
focus is on the new Policar Lotus 72.
Long awaited, the engineering and
performance exceeds expectations,
and the Gold Leaf livery is a super
contrast to the Scalextric Lotus 72
JPS release.
58 SRC CLASSIC GRAND PRIX CARS
Slot cars with real springs in the
suspension? And working side skirts?
And individual tyre set markings? These
are just some of the features of the SRC
Ferrari 312 T4 and Renault RS10 cars
just released. You can even recall the
famous French Grand Prix at Dijon 1979
with a special set.
WORKSHOPS
24 SLOTSTOX STEP-BY-STEP

52 LEGO RACE CAR

fi nds himself squeezed into another
Lego creation, this time a very small car
that delights kids of all ages to watch it
racing.
