Scalextric C3654 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray L88

June 15-16, 1974: Le Mans 24 Hours. Car no.51 was driven by French drivers Henri Greder and Marie-Claude Charmasson. No.51 Chevrolet Corvette was powered by a Chevrolet 7.0L V8. 253 laps were completed. The fastest Porsche Carrera now qualified nearly 10 seconds a lap faster, and the Ferrari Daytona 7 seconds faster than Greder/Beaumont. At mid race, the Corvette was in 27th position overall, while the first Carrera was 5th and the Ferrari Daytona 6th. Greder/Beaumont finished in 18th place after ignition, water pump and battery problems, as well as the loss of 1st and 2nd gear. With a 10th in the GT class finish, they were nearly 600 kms behind the class leader Grandet/Bardini with their 365 GTB4 who finished 5th. The car was sold in the US in 1975, #194679S706401 later came back to France, where its owner enters it from time to time for historic events. It still has the dark blue paint job with the Travelers Cheque and #51. Henri Greder has had the opportunity to drive with his old racer on several occasions, such as “Le Mans Classic”, and “Tour Auto Historique”.

Scalextric C3593A Mercedes 2014 F1 Lewis Hamilton-Limited Edition

Limited Edition: 3,000

The Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team unveiled the F1 W05, its 2014 challenger, at the Circuito de Jerez in southern Spain. Ahead of the first morning of official winter testing, Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton took the wraps off the first all-new Silver Arrow to hit the track since 1954. Designed from the ground up as an integrated project between the Mercedes-Benz teams based at Brackley and Brixworth, this new car marks an historic milestone in a landmark year when Mercedes-Benz celebrates 120 years of Motorsport and the 80th anniversary of the Silver Arrows.

Lewis Hamilton began his racing career in karting in 1993 at the age of 8 and quickly began winning races and Cadet class championships. Hamilton continued his progress in Formula A and became European Champion in 2000 with maximum points. His team mate was Nico Rosberg who would later drive for the Williams and Mercedes teams in Formula One; they would later team up again for Mercedes in 2013. In his first season in Formula One, Hamilton set numerous records, while finishing second in the 2007 Formula One Championship, just one point behind Kimi Räikkönen. He won the World Championship the following season. He is the only driver on the current grid to have won at least one race in each season he has competed in to date, with McLaren from 2007 until 2012, and with Mercedes since 2013. Mercedes won the Formula One Constructors’ Championship in 2014 and Lewis Hamilton drove the No.44 car home to take a Championship win with eleven 1st place finishes and, excepting retirements, was always on the podium.

Carrera GO! 1/43 scale cars, race sets, and track.

February 22, 2008 by  
Filed under Newsletter Archive 2008

New Product Line:

We have just received our first shipment of the Carrera GO! 1/43 scale cars, race sets, and track.  Go! is is especially effective as a low-cost way to get your children started in slot car racing.  The cars are more than a little toylike in their look, but they run well and the system as a whole delivers good value for the money.  GO! works well as a way to let your kids try slot car racing when you don’t know whether they will stay with it for the long term and you don’t want to invest a lot of money into a hobby that may just turn out not to be their thing.  You can use it to give your 5 or 6 year-old his own track and cars that he can play with when you are not around to supervise him as he runs on your "grown-up" track that you have put lots of time and money into. 

We also believe that 1/43 scale is beginning to evolve into a scale for serious enthusiasts, especially those who are limited spacewise but don’t care for HO racing.  Interest in 1/43 scale as a hobby rather than a toy is already developing, and we expect to see more scale appearing cars with higher performance emerging as time goes on.  We have no trouble at all imagining a truly cool 1/43 scale racing layout with scenery and structures adapted from O-scale (1/48) model railroading and parking lots and pit areas filled with 1/43 scale diecast cars.  GO! has many of the basics, including 2 different curve radii and an electronic lap counter, and we’re sure there is much more to come from Carrera and other manufacturers.  We will be adding all the new releases for 2008 as they become available and we will be actively seeking out other 1/43 scale products to add to our selection. 

Clik here for GO! cars, here for GO! race sets, and here for GO! track and accessories.
