MCR85 Model Car Racing Magazine, January/February 2016

The pros and cons of all five different brands of digital racetrack systems are examined to of help you decide which one is best for you. There’s also information on which aftermarket tire will give best performance on your track. The quickest sports and GT cars have chassis with a separate pod for motor and rear axle. Now you can fit these super-performance pods in most other 1/32 scale race cars. You cannot buy a 1/32 scale replica of 2014 and 2015 Williams Formula 1 cars but you can paint and decal one using the step-by-step techniques in this issue. There are full reports on the prototypes’ racing background, specifications and the performance and details of the 1/32 scale models of the 1969 Trans-Am Camaro, 1986 Peugeot 205 T16, 1987 Peugeot 205 T16 “Pikes Peak”, 2010 BMW Z4 GT3, 2012 Aston Martin Vantage GT3, 2014 BMW Z4 GT3, 2014 McLaren P1, and 2015 Williams FW37 Formula 1. The cars you can buy to recreate most of grid in the Modern GT Class (FIA GT3) in 1/32 scale. There are step-by-step techniques you can use to lay the copper or braid pickup strips on your own wood tabletop racetrack. You can see the mile-long 30 x 30-foot Scalextric track that Martin Brundle designed for Skysports TV coverage. There are plans so you can assemble a 4-Lane Indy F1 Circuit on a 7 x 12-foot tabletop and on a 7 x 18-foot tabletop using snap-together plastic track.

Scalextric C3657A Legends – Team Lotus 72-Limited Edition

Limited Edition Size: 3,000

The 6th Race of Champions, run to Formula One rules, was held in March 1971 at the Brands Hatch circuit in Kent, UK. The race was run over 50 laps. Three Team Lotus Ltd cars were entered against other manufacturers including Williams, BRM, Tyrrell, Brabham, McLaren, March and Ferrari piloted by Stewart, Surtees, Hill, Gethin, Hulme, Fittipaldi, Peterson and others. Unfortunately, the relatively unknown Tony Trimmer was to enjoy only 5 laps before his Team Lotus car expired with a broken fuel pump.

Scalextric C3589A Winged Legends-Brabham BT26 & McLaren M7C-Limited Edition

Limited Edition Size: 3,000 The Winged Legends of the 1969 Grand Prix Championship.

Sir Jack Brabham’s race team built the Brabham BT26A/2 and was one of the first to experiment with aircraft-inspired wings to create increased downforce. The Scalextric version models the No.8 car raced by Jack Brabham in the International Trophy race at Silverstone, March 30th, 1969. Non-Championship races were often used to test developments on Grand Prix cars and in these early months of 1969 the negatives were yet to outweigh the positive aspects of high mounted aero-wings as the Lotus 49B cars would discover at the Spanish Grand Prix. Bruce McLaren, fellow Antipodean and friend of Brabham, was also running a high wing on his McLaren M7C No.6 car at the Spanish Grand Prix of 1969. During the race both Lotus 49B cars driven by Graham Hill and Jochen Rindt crashed heavily after the high wings failed. The potential for these wings to fail with a high risk of injury to drivers and spectators was of grave concern and after just a few brief months of an exciting innovative development, such wings were banned by the FIA authorities. Bruce McLaren finished in 2nd place behind Stewart and ahead of Beltoise, Hulme and Surtees – the only drivers to finish the race!

Scalextric C3638 Lancia Delta S4

The Scalextric model is a recreation of the Lancia Delta S4 that Dario Cerrato, with co-driver Giuseppe Cerri, finished in 2nd place only 30 seconds behind Markku Alén in another Delta S4 team car in the Rallye Sanremo in 1986. The driver pairing lasted for over a decade and were firmly linked to the famous Italian racing team Jolly Club. The Lancia Delta S4, a Group B rally car, competed in the World Rally Championship in 1985 and 1986, until Group B cars were banned from competition by the FIA.

Both cars retired from the event.

Scalextric C3656A Legends – Team Lotus 49-Limited Edition—PRE-ORDER NOW!

The 1968 Monaco Grand Prix was held on May 26, 1968. It was the third round of the 1968 Formula One season. The race was won by Lotus driver Graham Hill, who started from pole position. At the start Servoz-Gavin took the lead but after three laps he suffered a driveshaft failure and crashed. This left Hill in the lead and there he stayed for the rest of the afternoon. The first few laps saw a number of accident with Oliver and McLaren colliding on the first lap, Jochen Rindt (Brabham) crashing on lap nine while trying to pass Surtees. Brabham, Dan Gurney and Siffert all went out with mechanical trouble while Beltoise broke his suspension running over a curb and Piers Courage (Reg Parnell Racing BRM) stopped because his car was handling so badly. Surtees then disappeared with a gearbox failure and on the same lap Rodriguez crashed and so only five cars were left by the end of lap 16. As a result the excitement was limited although third placed Hulme stopped in the mid-race to have a driveshaft replaced and dropped to fifth, leaving Bianchi to finish third behind Hill and Attwood with Lodovico Scarfiotti fourth in the second Cooper-BRM.
