I strongly doubt that we will get 3 new cars (the Alfa's in january) on the same month ! (the reason for announcing all of them now could be tightened with a license issue)
BTW, it's quite obvious FLY has done with Alfa, otherwise why would have bothered to make the 147 ? Really boring ... When I think they could have brung the 33TT3 and the 33TT12 ... It's a really silly decision.
I've got a DVD trailer of the Vaillent film. It was included with the official programme on sale at this years 24 hour Race.
From the look of it I prefer McQueen's "Le Mans"....I still love to watch it.
The review says it's not a great movie save for the motor racing fans. The effects are said to be very very spectacular, the story being on the other hand very poor (but typical of any Michel Vaillant story).
I just thought of something.
Aren't those Alfa's front wheel drive?
And if they are, given Fly's trait of putting motors in the same place as 1:1 cars, I have to wonder if the motor is in the front, and if it will be...........dare I say.......front wheel drive? I supposed it's possible if done in a side winder arrangement at the front, or turn the motor around so that the shaft is out the front hooking to a crown gear.
Could be interesting to see how Fly develops it.....

Well, I don't what Fly is preparing for these cars... but when I was kid in my loft track we use to have races (can you imagine around 25 kids in the loft of your home?) and I remember two brothers that race with two Scalextric Minis with front whell drive
. This was in the midle of 70's and I think the cars was from the late 60's perhaps 1968 or 1969.
