Been posting on these boards for a while now, but didn't bother to introduce myself as I have been posting for much longer on a similar board that most people frequent...

Anyway, the reason I decided to introduce myself is a post I read on the digital board; "What happened to SCX?". At the bottom of the page 1 moped rider and integrali began talking about the lack of young racers these days. Don't know what part of the country you're from but I'd say the there are plently of young'uns, and to make matters worse, they're beating the old'uns!

Our current club champion is 21, but won his first European GP at 17 I believe, his brother was European Champion at 18, and we have recently had a couple of GPs where the 6 finalists average age is below 20.

Just wanted to put this forward as I want the 'teens to be acknowledged, they are out there....

Back to the introduction,

Lotus03:

My name is Andy, I am 18 and from London. I enjoy all typical 18 year old hobbies; drinking, eating, sleeping, watching motorsport and competing in motorsport. Although competeing is stricly limited to breaking all manners of traffic laws in my Fiesta... and slot racing.

I have been racing for nearly 6 years at Eastcote Scalex Club and West London Scalex Racing Club. Both plexi tracks, one smoother than the other... I enjoy racing GT cars and F1 cars without magnets, and for the life of me cannot think why anyone would want to add a manget to a slot car (not starting the arguement again). I compete in the club championship at both clubs, a couple of annual 24hr, 12hr and 6hr events, and also in the London GT series, and the European Grand Prix series where I finished 6th last year (don't mean to toot my own horn, lol).

Lotus03; because you can't find better handling sports cars for that price... and that's when I signed up.

Thanks for reading, sorry for moaning and see you all around,

Lotus (Andy)

If you think that's bad:

I used to have a Nova...

(Un)Fortunatly a kind taxi driver drove into it, but that's another story...

Anyway, what car did you have when you were 18? eh?

Guess what! SCX are bringing out a Fiesta!
Not like my mk 3 but it's got to be better than the Scalextric offering.

Also seen a C2 VTR, 307 Coupe and loads more!

Check out MRE, loads of advanced previews.

Shame no-one ever never made bubble cars or the old 240Z (or did they?)
