The author, Oliver K. Brandt was born in 1957 in Frankfurt, Germany. He holds a master of economics and was working as a consultant and later as general representative for different banks in Frankfurt. He got his first slot car track from his parents on his 11th birthday. He immediately became fascinated with all the realistic vehicles, the technical parts and kits, the big commercial raceways of wood near to his home and the experience of active slot-racing. Many years later, he fell in love again with his slot-cars and re-discovered step by step all the other different international manufacturers, especially the American ones and their colorful varieties of products. Shortly after he re-started with slot-racing he began to collect like a real 'vacuum cleaner', all slot-racing stuff he could find in his region; still 'infected', he visited all the famous toy- and slot car-fairs in Europe; finally 'ebay' started in the World Wide Web and created the biggest market for vintage slot-car collectors. In the meantime he has one of the largest collections of 1/24 scale slot cars and one of the most beautiful 4-lane race tracks - which was even been published in Japanese magazines.
