At long last - The Italian Job set

Just spotted an advert for this when checking out from Ebay.
Hornby official issue, not sure if it is restricted to John Lewis.


Only red and blue minis and no special features, but the price seems fair/attractive. Diehards like myself have been waitingsince 1968 for this

Was not sure where to post this, apologies if not spot-on. I have no allegiance to the vendors.

Kinde regards, Leo

I have the boxed set. I have a 3 lane wood track and we race these stock. Slow but fun.

Found this pic of mine on the track. I have added a square of lead to the bottom and since they are racers I removed the interiors. We leave the cars on the same lanes and rotate drivers.

and as I drive a Fit aka Jazz I have these two plus a Yaris. They are mounted on the larger Mini chassis.

I paid around $85 Cdn for the Mini set

Nice to see these actually being raced, but then I know that you are a Mini fanatic !


Shows what I know. I did not realize they ran in that order. Hmm maybe I should drive the Red one all the time and mess with the timing system so I win all the time?

They do look nice sitting in the case but I have a roomful of Earnhardt diecasts to look at. Slot cars are made to be raced.
