The car pictured in the first post does not match the description. It is C3057W from set C3055A and raced at Le Mans in 2009, not 2010. It is identifiable by the Czech flag on the nose, black wheels and a few minor decal changes.

C3188 is the model that raced at Le Mans 2010, identifiable by the UK flag, silver wheels and minor decal changes.

Which one is on offer? The 2009 or 2010 version?

That means nothing. Don't forget that you're talking about a Scalextric "limited edition", not another brand's
. It might well have been that Scalextric had a load surplus that they needed to get rid of. Still, if it's definitely the English flag version, it's a tempting offer.

To be fair, it does say C3188 at the top.
I think Doug was just using some example pics.

Very good price - do these offers require a certain amount of people to purchase them at these prices?

As far as I know, the 'Group Buy' deal is subject to a minimum of 12 members placing an order for the products but the online shop will not just process your order at RRP if less than 12 people have applied to buy the car - you will get notified if the price is different from the offer.

They processed my order immediately. That was way too quick for 12 people to have applied. It appears to be for the lower sum. P&P was £2 in mainland UK.

Sorry, I used a photo from the review (set C3055A) - a slightly different livery, but essentially the same model.

The orders are processed as the minimum number of 12 is easily reached with a car like this. They don't all post here. It is assumed (from past experience) that at least 12 people will take advantage of this offer.
