I`ve been promising to treat myself to Tonys`(superhornets) book "Electric Model Car Racing In Britain" for some time now.
But it`s one of those things that I`d just never got round to, until last week.
I`m really pleased I got this book. Priced under £20 it really is excellent value for money.
The book is hardback bound , & the (plentiful) photos & illustrations are printed on 190 pages of high quality paper.
The chapters are well laid out , interesting & easy to follow.
There is something in this book for every slot fan whether you are a collector like me, or an out & out racer.
There`s even a cool photo of Derek Cooper looking like something out of Procol Harum!
Cheers,
Kev.









Derek Cooper....cool dude.....

Kev,

I agree; Tony's book is a great read--I've got a copy here in my office. The history probably means a bit more to those who know these folks in person and have built and raced with them, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Cheers,

This must be around '70-'72 so Derek would be 21ish
Long term girfriend in those days was probably one you had been out with for more than a week!

Derek has told me that when he asked girls parents if they could go away with him for the weekend to play with toy cars they had no problem at all, guess they thought he must be harmeless if he was still playing with his toys at 21 years old!
