Hello everyone

I have been trying to find a slot forum for ages, and only after reading Tuckers Tips on the GS website did I come accross this one. I still couldn't find the bulletin borad though, too busy looking at all the layouts in the resources section.

Then I clicked the banner thinking that would go the the homepage, and behold, it brought me here.

An short introdcuction;

My name is Gary and I live in the West Midlands. I recently bought myself a Scalextric Sport set, after becoming frustrated with my ancient Le Mans set failing to work. I enjoy racing Ninco cars most, allthough my Scalextric GT40 is very nice, as are (surprisingly) two F3 style scalextric cars I got for a tenner each.

I'm currently looking for clubs in my area (solihull), at the moment the nearest I can find is Wolverhampton. Do any of you know of a closer meet?

Thanks, and I look forward to discussing racing in the future.

Hello mate, a Dudleyite here. I go to the Collingwood club on Friday nights in Great Barr (when I can, the twin hazards of work and decorating have kept me away from the place for a month or so) which might be easy for you to get to since it's only a couple of miles from the motorway junction along the Queslett Road.

Have a look here http://www.gamingcrypt.co.uk/ and follow the links the the Our Clubs. Steve (club and shop owner) has a good stock in his shop as well.

Welcome, LMP04!


QUOTE anything overseas was disallowed..

Sooner or later, those with brains will find SF. You think "overseas" is a bad limit? Try "next door neighbour"! Me?... bitter? Nawwww....


Came here, and was amazed that the entire world gets treated as one. Can't get rid of me now!

No, didn't get booted (but then I tend to hold back emotion...
), but like many boards, ignored for not being in the "right place". Here? No one cares where we come from - we get treated with respect. Frankly, I'm still in shock from that and still getting used to it! Happily!

I pity the Canadians. At least us Brits have 3000 miles of water between us and the U.S.
Shouldn't complain though - it's not every country that can claim the status of being a 600 mile long stationary aircraft carrier for Uncle Sam


Only joking guys, before I ingratiate myself to half the members here!

I like America, you can play with big V8s and guns. Some of the scenery is breathtaking and most of the people are friendly. Also without the UK sending those pilgrims over to the new world, we would never have had the Dukes of Hazzard, A-Team, Airwolf and Knight Rider.


WHOOPS sorry. Turning into general chat area.

Mark.

Diff, you almost had me believing your sincerity until you said that!


The US gave us pro slot racing, which, in reality, brought considerable awareness and credibility to what we do, on a scale we didn't previously enjoy. Gotta give em a
for that, at least!

Don`t give them any credit cos it goes to their head! Next thing you know Mel Gibson will be starring in `Slot Heart` covered in WD 40 and trying to convince us " how we beat the English at Slot racing whilst discovering the Enigma machine and fighting all the baddies in WW2 who were all SS and equipped with Tiger tanks"


I love em the World would be a lot less interesting without them
