The photo is of the Jagermeister Team Slot.it car that finished 2nd in the Verbano 24 hour race last year.

Maurizio will be the first to tell you that a 956 long-tail never raced in Jagermeister livery, only the short-tail version. But he liked the colours and did a great job of it too!

I believe that Maurizio used DMC decals, which are made for the TrueScale 1/32nd scale Porsche 962C.

Kind regards

I think that they will all be well worth waiting for Wankel, although you may want to save your money for the Nissan!

I've already pre-ordered the Le Mans 1984 Rothmans 3-car P956 set from Sean, so I'm not sure that I'll be able to afford the others (and get away with it, if you know what I mean!)

The 962 releases, hopefully all this year will be:-

SICA03a Porsche 962 Blaupunkt Le Mans 1988
SICA03b Porsche 962 Repsol

Additionally, some 956C's:-

SICA02c Porsche 956C #8 Spirit of America
SICA02d Porsche 956C #18 Boss Le Mans 1983

And the SICA02z Porsche 956 unpainted.

"Le Mans Winners" limited editions:-

SICW01b Porsche 956C 3-car Set Rothmans Le Mans 1982
SICW01a Porsche 956 NewMan 1st Le Mans 1984



Hopefully also this year, SICA04a Nissan R390 GT1 and SICA04a Sauber Mercedes C9.

On the Nissan, I understand that the prototype was tested under race conditions last night at the Soragna club circuit. It was built up entirely from test-shots and acquitted itself rather well -- the driver's personal best lap time had been a 16.21 with a Slot.it P956 sidewinder, and he did a 15.75 with the Nissan after only 20 laps of practice. In the race he set a new personal record of 87 laps with the Nissan, versus 84 with the P956, finishing in 2nd place -- which for a non-club member is almost unheard of...

Sounds promising!

Kind regards

Russell
