Ahead of our visit to Avant's display, we caught up with them a few days prior to the show and are pleased to present their 2012 range and info.

Before we get to the models some words from Alberto Ranz - CEO of Avant Slot;

"State of Art"

"After six years in the market place the winds of change arrive. Nobody escapes
from these troubled times and it's not easy to keep focused on a hobby when your
thoughts are far away. That's the moment to stop, wait and think. We must find
deep in our heart the machine that moves us, wake up this feeling and let it free."

"Here at Avant Slot we are working to build your dream cars for collectors, racers
and home users, it doesn't matter which you are."

"In the 2012 collection you will find the new state of the art cars made by slot
enthusiasts for the slot enthusiast. We do not have a general marketing manager
working with a calculator, just a team that put their hearts into each product.
If you can imagine the engine noise while you have one of our cars in your hand,
welcome to the world of Avant Slot."

"Finally I'm proud to say that we have come back home. Models will be made under
strict parameters in our Spanish factory."

Here are photos from the Avant Slot stand. Alberto Ranz very kindly showed us what he had planned for 2012.

The exciting news is that they will be bringing production back to Spain. Short run production and re-runs will now be possible. They will keep every car in the catalogue for about two years and if successful and if there is demand, they may re produce a certain car at a later date.

A new UK distributor AEC, will bring the cars to the UK from now on.

Here are photos. Text and details will follow.

I know I keep harping on about this, but how about the GrpN Subaru body with a Toshi Arai livery ? He's been flying the flag for Subaru in GrpN for years. I favour this livery from Cyprus in 2009...

Produce this one, and I promise to buy two. I can't say fairer than that.

Stuart.
