News from SRC;Special Edition GP France 1979 Box Set
Limited edition of 750 units
Anyone who has long memories or is even old enough may well remember the titanic battle between Rene Arnoux and Gilles Villeneuve at the 1979 French Grand Prix, (if not check it out on you tube - below)
. Live on the BBC all those years ago. Murray Walker went into meltdown as the two drivers banged into each other in the closing stages of the race held at Dijon. It wasn't even for the lead but for second place and in the end it was the French speaking Canadian Villeneuve that won the battle crossing the line in his Ferrari just a few tenths of a second ahead of Arnoux's Renault.
SRC have decided to recreate this piece of motorsport folklore with a limited edition set featuring the two protagonists. Just 750 numbered sets will be available.Image and text [I](edited)

The Porsche 962 was a sport-prototype racing car, designed to replace the Porsche 956, to race the WSC Group C and Americans IMSA competitions. The main difference from the 956 model was the chassis, modified according to changed FIA safety rules.
This Group C racer from Porsche was one of the most succesfull racing cars ever, its palmares including:
- World Sport-Prototype Championship: 1985, 1986
- Le Mans 24h: 1986, 1987, 1994
- IMSA GTP Championship: 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988
- Daytona 24h: 1985, 1986, 1987, 1989, 1991
- Sebring 12h: 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988
Two were the versions of this car: "962" for IMSA Championships, "962C" for Group C races.
In 1990, the Team's principal and driver, Walter Lechner, entered the Interserie Coupe Super Sports with a Porsche 962C KH sponsored by Walter Lechner Racing School and Jim Beam.
Lechner won the fourth race of the Championship, held on the historic Brands Hatch circuit.Info and images as supplied by Slot.it
