Built to take part in the recent Classic Le Mans themed event at the Wolverhampton Scalextric Club, this model has been built using an A2M resin body from Spain. Chassis is Penelope Pitlane in-line comp; motor is nsr evo 22k and running gear is slot.it. Wheels are the wonderful work of Mr Peter Seager-Thomas.













Thanks for looking.

What a beauty!
And a very clever solution putting the driver on the motor too!

One day, I will try my hands on a scratch-project too. Being an absolute newbie to slotracing, I´ll stick to driving ready made cars for a while. The next step will be "tuning" out of the box cars.

Cheers

Superb work and of course Dave is far too modest to have mentioned that he won concours with the car at the Wolves Le Mans race.

Could you tell me what the A2M shells are like to obtain from Spain and how much preparation they need?

Stunning, and great idea to have the seats and driver "blend" into the motor.

Thanks for showing us this work of art.

David - I can only give Juan at A2M my warmest recommendation. Try him - I am sure you will not regret it.

Juan is a really nice guy and his service is superb. As is his resin shells, I have by now 9 of them in my collection.

Absolutely beautiful Dave, brilliant job.

Just a historical correction to a couple of the comments: putting the driver on the motor is an old trick in slot racing (especially in the days of big block engines in small or low cars), but rarely has it been done so nicely...

Well
Inspired by davids Xk finally got my one finished and took some piccys of
Hope you like it
I did it not based on any prototype but more of a gentlemans carriage that could be used during the week and at weekends for going on the odd club rally





Enjoy

Cheers tony
