On the right the Porsche 962C raced by Jr and on the left the 956LH raced by me last Saturday on a 3 hrs race(25 minutes stints), on the Northern Slot Club of the City, a track with medium straights(+-5 mts) and good race rithm, a really nice race in which our p6 and p7 results tasted sweet as we beated many of the local racers with +5 years on the circuit.
Cabalistic numbers uh! (917.61)
Nothing like a good endurance race for the weekend, with Slot it Porsches😀…
These 2 are my Le Mans Miniatures Dauer Porsches. The yellow road car is missing its steering wheel and is on Slot It plastic wheels on the rear. The 1994 LM test car is just missing a mirror. These are the cars that put me off LMM cars as the interior was glued to the chassis with its own paint and so was a real nightmare to reassemble when I only wanted to change the wires over on the guide. Funnily enough the factory wired them to run in opposite directions, as 1 run in the direction required without needing any work. Also, the front axle is kept in place by the body as there is nothing on the chassis to hold it. They look good but not upto Slot It performance and quality in MY opinion (please feel free to have a differing opinion, no one is wrong).
Similar in quality to LMM's models, the Le Mans 1971 Gulf longtails from Viktor di Natalie's MMK concern below. These are not only aesthetically rather beautiful, but also perform exceptionally well. Lots of power and good sticking performance straight out of the box.
A much-published picture of Ferry Porsche at the age of 11 in his first car, a Christmas present from his parents in 1920. The car would do 30moh around the garden but, with solid rear and front axles, it tended to push its front tyres off the rims during hard cornering.
Ah, joyous news. Mrs Grumpy is out carousing with the similarly minded this very evening and won't return until the morrow. Marvellous. It means, of course, that I can spend another evening at the Mess enjoying my toy cars, starting with this 917, which hasn't been exercised of late.
And, I intend to drink a glass of Scotch when that drunken, useless git, Haddock, removes his derriere from my chalice. A vos sante.
