> FlySlot News - Martini Brabham BT44
Posted by JEXY1 - 16-04-15 09:10 - 13 comments

News from FlySlot;

Brabham-Martini BT44
German Grand Prix Winner 1975
Carlos Reutemann #7
Ref; FS062101
Retail £49.95
Available now

From Terry at Gaugemaster;
I first ran the idea of Fly doing this car nearly 10 years ago after their very successful March 761 release. I sent much info and livery suggestions over but it didn't seem to get any further. In frustration I started to build my own version using the mid-seventies Scalextric BT44 body as a basis and adapting it to the Fly March chassis. When I was asked over to Madrid to meet the new owner of FlySlot in November 2012, I took my prototype over with me in my hand luggage. It's funny how you can talk about something forever and nothing happens but put a model down on the table and suddenly everyone at Fly was excited about the project. It took a further year of them telling me that it could be a possibility and then Rafael Barrios Junior confirmed it at the 2014 Nuremberg Toy Fair. And here she is!

The high air box F1's made quite a stir recently when they appeared at Goodwood with both Autosport and this month's Motorsport Magazines giving plenty of coverage, so its release is well timed. Fly also based much of this model on their March chassis so now we have a perfect advisory for the great handling Fly 761.

> Slot.it News; Nissan R89C n.85 Le Mans 1990
Posted by JEXY1 - 14-04-15 10:32 - 4 comments

News from Slot.it;

Nissan R89C n.85
Le Mans 1990
Drivers: A.Olofsson, T.Wada, M.Sandro Sala
Ref; CA28b
Official selling date: April 16th

For the 1989 season, rather than relying again on chassis built by March, Nissan had developed the R89C model in conjunction with Lola. The car featured a kevlar and carbon-fibre based monocoque chassis fitted with Nissan's new twin-turbo VRH35 3.5L V8 DOHC engine which was mounted in a stressed installation for better chassis rigidity, delivering up to 950bhp.

Despite Nissan's efforts, the 1989 World Sportscar Championship season was rather unsuccessful for Nissan, as their cars lacked reliability and speed. The beautiful R89C was only able to score points in three races and finished the season in fifth place in the championship for teams.

This model raced the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1990. Its suspensions and aerodynamics were modified, as in the twin car entered by Courage Competition, but it was painted inthe distinctive silver-grey livery of its main sponsor Men's Tenoras. This was the sole Nissan R89C shod with Yokohama tyres.

Car numbered 85 was driven by A. Olofsson, T. Wada, M. Sandro Sala.

> NSR News - BMW Z4 (New model)
Posted by JEXY1 - 13-04-15 16:23 - 13 comments

News from NSR;
A new model and a new livery;

Test Car Silver
Ref; NSR1193AW
Retail £64.00

Yes you read that right, we will within the next week or two, take delivery of NSR's first totally new car for over a year and a half - the BMW Z4. Supplied initially in the NSR fashion of a plain Test Car, the first release will be in silver metallic finish. Liveried versions of course will follow but I think the news of any new NSR tooling will be welcome to the racers up and down the country regardless of its colour.

Corvette C6R
Zolder 2011
Ref; NSR1191AW
Retail £71.00

Being slightly over shadowed by this release, there will also be a red C6R Corvette from the FIA GT race at Zolder 2011 with this delivery.

The K2 was different version of the 935 built by the respected German Porsche tuning and race prep company Kremer, and Sideways have faithfully replicated the different body style of the prototype. The model as always features Slot.it running gear throughout.
