Bizarre.......I don't know what it is, but I never paid any notice to this era of GP cars until getting into slots, but they are rapidly becoming must haves. I love the sleekness of the cars......automotive perfection????

You can take you're carbon fibre, traction controlled, areodynamics and shove it.....i'll take a time machine and go back to watch cars like this in action anyday.

I have to agree with Mac, I've built up a few cars using his bodies.


I've also ordered the Cartrix Merc.

Looks like a fine model. Pity it costs so much, but probably worth it for its uncommon looks and collector value. Great to see Cartrix widening their production. I hope that other manufacturers start making these classic single-seaters with Cartrix and Scalex.

i hope to try my hand at scratch building soon...i've always admired mark gussins work ever since i began trawling the web for slot car info several years ago and came across his scratchbuilt examples

let's hope the trend in open wheel racers from that era conti nues though as there seems to be a niche in the slot market for these fine historic race-mobiles
