Hi all. My name is Ian and im from the peterborough (uk) area.10 years (!) ago now i use to have a small set and do a bit of carpet racing but nothing special, so now at the age of 24 , i thought i would give it another go and it looks like iam in the hobby for the long term!
. I think my wallet has just heard me say that as it has just legged it out the door!
so for now, i need to get it back, once that is sorted, i will be then able to get some more done to a small analog layout that i have just started

Hi "slotdriver" and welcome to the forum, really surprised that handle hadn't already been taken

Welcome Ian - compared to most hobbies your wallet won't take as much of a beating.

If you want to check some club racing out you'd be most welcome at Wellingborough, a couple of our regulars come from Peterborough so lift sharing could even be an option

Greetings from the other end of the world. Welcome to the madness.

It is possible to enjoy this hobby without taxing the wallet too much, but it ain't easy. It takes an awful lot of 'won't' power. And the odd binge occasionally when the won't power collapses under the stress is ok, isn't it? Isn't it?? Please tell me it is.

Hello. My name is Ember and I'm an addict. It's been 3 weeks since my last new slot car.... Ok.
I'll come clean. It's been 2 days since my last slot car purchase. I'd hoped second hand didn't count. I couldn't help myself. It was there so shiny. And an E-type. You know I can't resist them.


Be warned. Dealing with addiction can be hard work.

I'm also in Northampton so not far if ever you want to meet up.

I've also got a fair bit of spare track if you want any second hand.

I never knew there was some people close as this. I take it you know the area well, if you do, you may know of a place called oundle, i live just down the road from there! thanks for the offer for the track but i have as much track i can fit into the space i have at the moment. I think i will finish my first layout, other wise things like the tv and sofa could be scraped to make way for a very large layout!
