Trans-Am super special! Two of the most popular Camaros are on sale now! Limit two per customer. No dealers.

 

Scalextric C3431 1970 Camaro, Tony DeLorenzo (C)

After leaving the Penske Racing team in 1968, Warren Agor formed Agor Racing Enterprises. As a race car owner, builder, and driver he set many track records and won numerous SCCA and IMSA races including the 25th Trans-Am race victory for the Chevrolet Camaro at Sanair International raceway in Canada (the only race track in the world with a name that sounds like the naming rights have been bought by a garbage collection company or a room deodorizer manufacturer). Agor, of Rochester, New York, bought the car from Marshall Robbins in late 1971. He changed the color to Hugger Orange and the number to 13. Hoselton Chevrolet sponsored the car for the three years that Agor drove it. At the time of his retirement from racing in 1973, he had accumulated more points than any then-active professional driver participating in the Trans-Am series. Agor now runs a company providing mobility solutions for the disabled.

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!

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.

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.

This week’s slot car special deal:

MRRC MC0035 Ford Mk IV presentation car 1967. Only $39.95 for a limited time. Only one to a customer. No dealer orders.

 

MRRC MC0035 Ford Mk IV presentation car 1967 (C) (E)

1/32 scale slot car, ready to run on all 1/32 scale slot car tracks. This model is said to represent the livery in which the Ford MkIV was first revealed to the press. We understand that the car was never actually raced in this livery.

This car uses the MRRC/Monogram Sebring chassis. The Sebring chassis is an excellent universal 1/32 scale chassis for use with body kits and for kitbashig and scratchbuilding projects. It can be set up to handle well in both magnet and non-magnet racing. It has an adjustable wheelbase and is compact enough to fit almost any sports car, GT, or sedan body and to allow the use of wide wheels ad tires within even a relatively modest body width.

MRRC and Monogram cars using the Sebring chassis come with a variety of different wheels and tires. All of them use the same “slimline” motor which provides more than enough power for most home and club racing. They are ideal “donor cars” to provide a complete running chassis for the body of your choice at a cost often lower than purchasing the needed components separately.

$44.95 $39.95

For a limited time only.

Slot It SICA13D Jaguar XJR12, #36, LeMans 1991

Motor: FC130

Easy, low-cost performance increase for Slot It GTP/Gp. C cars racing with magnets on plastic track…

Install SIPT06 19x10mm silicone slicks (a pair of these comes as extra tires with most of these cars) and an SICN07 racing magnet. The tires slip onto the rear wheels and the magnet snaps into the chassis in place of the original magnet. These two simple changes make a huge difference in the handling of the car and produce much faster lap times.

Special Prices on select SRC cars coming in early August:

 

SRC 00203 Porsche 907 K 12H Sebring 1968 Siffert-Herrmann—PRE-ORDER NOW!

The introduction of new rules by the FIA in 1968 had a negative effect on the 12 Hours of Sebring and all other endurance races of that year. Big bore cars were no longer part of the Manufacturers Championship, placing now emphasis on smaller displacement cars (5 liters or less). Porsche showed up at Sebring with a “short-tail” version of the 907, which overshadowed Ford and Ferrari entries.

A Trans-Am race was included within the 12 Hours. This was at first criticized for the number of GT and Trans-Am cars in the field, but finally this event is now considered as unique in Sebring history for its two races in one format.

During qualifying the 907 driven by Hans Herrmann was fastest.

The Race started as predicted, with the Porsches pulling out to a safe lead and then fighting with various challengers, wearing them down.

The Scooter Patrick/Dave Jordan Lola challenged early but soon set aside due to an engine failure. The Hobbs/Hawkins Ford GT40 was in contention until an accident with the all-female AMC Javelin of Janet Guthrie (later to become the first woman to race at Indianapolis) and Liane Engeman, made them retire.

One of the most popular cars in the race was the turbine-powered Howmet driven by its creator, Ray Heppenstall. It was fast, but it needed to stop for kerosene fuel every hour. At the end of the race its suspension could not withstand the tough Sebring circuit and retired after running as high as third.

While two of the four factory Porsche 907 entries dropped out early in the race, the remaining two dominated the final half of it. Hans Herrmann and Jo Siffert drove to a eleven lap victory in one of the most dominating wins in Sebring History. The Vic Elford/Jochen Neerspach 907 finished in second place.

The Porsche effort was impressive. The 8 cylinder 2.2 litre engines in the light 907 chassis produced speeds nearly equal to the 7 litre Fords of the previous year. Also, the 911 S of Alan Johnson and Alan Kirby won a special GT Class Price for a meritorious seventh position.

SRC 00701 Alfa Romeo 33 TT 12 L 6H Watkins Glen 1975 Bell-Pescarolo—PRE-ORDER NOW!

This car culminated several seasons of prototypes developed since 1969, evolved as experience was accumulated and regulations were modified.

Designed by Carlo Chiti, was based on a multi-tubular chassis, from there its name TT (Telaio Tubular in Italian), with a 12-cylinder engine in a 180° angle, four valves per cylinder, it achieved 500 HP and allowed the vehicle to reach a top speed of 330 km/h.

Six units were built only and usually three cars were taken to the races, two to compete and one to as reserve for breakdowns or accidents.

The Italian manufacturer experienced one of its best years, wining seven race out of nine. It leaned on the German’s pilot Willy Khausen’s team, who recruited for that season half a dozen Formula 1 drivers that rotate themselves in the driving positions.

For this race, that was the last one of the calendar that season, very early indeed, as it took place on 12th and 13th of July 1975, the drivers were Derek Bell, that after half dozen seasons in F1 without too much success he focused on resistance competition, on which he obtained great results; and Henry Pescarolo, who alternated Grand Prix with resistance, spending one more year afterwards driving single-seaters.

The race had over 50,000 spectators and 36 teams registered for it, out of which 32 turned up for practice, that was tough, as only 17 cars classified for the race.

Our protagonist achieved the third fastest time in practice, 1’45 “450 thousandths. Its race ended up once covered 826.083 kilometres after 6h, 01’23”, obtaining the first place.

The manufacturer after 1975 amazing season conducted a strong media campaign on the markets in which it already had presence.

LOOK WHAT’S NEW FOR 2015!

Most of the model car racing manufacturers introduce the products that will be shipped in 2015 at the Nuremburg International Toy Fair in early February. We’ll have more information in next week’s newsletter but we do know what Scalextric will have for 2015. As soon as part numbers are available we will have the cars listed on the website—click on the right sidebar heading “Future Releases”, then click on “New Releases 2015 Scalextric”, so you can Pre-Order to be the first to get yours (and to avoid missing any of the limited production items). These are the all-new cars but there are dozens more with new paint schemes:

  • 2014 World Champoinship Formula 1 Mercedes F1 W05
  • 2014 Formula 1 McLaren Mercedes MP4-29
  • 2012 BMW Z4 GT3
  • 2013 Aston Martin Vantage GT3
  • 2014 McLaren P1 supercar
  • Brabham BT26A-3 (to race with the Tyrell, Lotus 49 and McLaren 1968-1973 F1 cars)
  • 1968 Lotus 49 with low duck tail
  • 1/32 scale Go-Karts
  • Peugeot 205 T16 Rally car

The two Scalextric BMW Z4 GT race cars and the two McLaren P1 street cars will be fitted with a high-performance chassis for 2015 called PCR. The PCR chassis has a Slot.it anglewinder motor pod, motor, gears and wheels with plug-in electrical connections and the chassis are Digital Plug Ready so you can also plug-in the Scalextric C8515 Digital Plug to convert the car to Scalextric Digital.

The 1969 Sunoco #6 Trans-Am Camaro is coming back with a DPR-ready chassis for quick conversion to Digital.

Slot Cars at the Greystone Mansion!

May 20, 2014 by

Comments Off

Slot-Cars-Greystone-Mansion13

The 2014 Greystone Concours d’Elegance took place at the historic Greystone  Mansion in Beverly Hills on Sunday, May 4. This year celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Porsche Speedster and well as the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang.

The car show included  an awards ceremony and a fashion show. Food, drinks, and various auto  exhibits were present throughout the mansion grounds. The Greystone Mansion was also open for people to see its many rooms and history of the Doheny family who once lived there.

We had a great time introducing slot cars and slot car racing to some and rekindling the love affair for others. We had 100’s of cars on display and a great track set up for racers of all ages.

It was a great day all around!

Below are a couple of videos and lots of pics. Enjoy!

New (old) manufacturer announces first release

Policar R01A Ferrari 312PB, Monza 1972

Policar R01A Ferrari 312PB, Monza 1972. Preorder now! – $59.99

The old Policar name is being revived with this car, which looks to us very much like the Slot It Ferrari 312PB under a new name and offered as an RTR instead of a kit.  Time will tell, but we suspect Slot It is farming out some of its older tooling to produce cars at a lower price point.  The info provided to us says the cars will have Slot It running gear and be made to Slot It standards.  So, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…

1/32 scale TransAm cars race at LeMay Museum

The LeMay America’s Car Museum scored a solid success with its firs organized slot car racing event, the ACM Miniature TransAm Challenge, on October 19 and 20.  A field of 28 Scalextric and Pioneer 1/32 scale TransAm cars competed in two classes with close, hard-fought battles in both classes.  Two 4-lane Scalextric Sport tracks, nearly equal in length but different in design, challenged the entrants with racing on two different track configurations as they rotated across the tracks’ 8 lanes.  With only limited practice drivers had to adapt quickly to track designs they had never seen before arriving at the event.

All the competitors came from the greater Puget Sound area except for one mail-in entrant, Arrold Martin of Nashville, Tennessee, who sent a Scalextric Mustang for each class and saw his efforts rewarded with a solid third place out of ten entries in the Modified class. 

Close racing was the order of the day with five positions being decided by less than one lap after 40 minutes of racing in each class.The Modified class saw Jim Berg of Duvall, WA pull out a fairly comfortable 10-lap margin of victory over Brett Harrison of Everett, WA with mail-in racer Martin’s car taking third less than a lap behind Harrison.  In Stock the margin of victory was just over one lap with Ray Bishop edging out Craig Rieland for the win with the day’s biggest winner, Jim Berg, taking third,  Less than 3 laps covered the top 3 finishers.

Scalextric cars outnumbered Pioneer Mustangs 23 to 4.  All the Scalextrics were 69 Camaros or 69/70 Mustangs except for one Dodge Challenger and one 70 Camaro.  A number of unique liveries turned up among the factory pint schemes, making for a colorful field and not too many look-alike cars, though we noted that George Follmer was entered 3 times and Bill Maier twice.  Here are some of the custom-painted entries.

Bob Novack, Scalextric Mustang,  Stock class

Bob Novack, Scalextric 69 Camaro, Modified class

Craig Rieland, Scalextric Mustang, Modified class

Craig Rieland, Scalextric 69 Camaro, Stock class

Gerry Brott, Scalextric Dodge Challenger, Stock and Modified.  This was the only car in the race that was not a Mustang or a Camaro.

Roger Fossum, Pioneer Mustang, Stock class

Pat Clifton, Pioneer Mustang, Stock class

Brett Harrison, Scalextric 69 Camaro, Modified class

And what race would be complete without a car in primer?  This Scalextric Mustang was entered in the Modified class by Dallas Dixon.

The event received solid support from several sponsors who supplied prizes, essential equipment, and valuable assistance in organizing and conducting the racing.

Pioneer Models sent cars, including its last two unsold Bullitt Dodge Chargers in North America.  The Bullitt Chargers have become significant collectibles.

Hornby America sent several of its latest Scalextric cars including the two newest 1970 Camaros.

Innovative Hobby Supply provided an attractive selection of its decals, sign kits, chrome trim kits, and wheel inserts.

Griot’s Garage, a manufacturer and retailer of high-quality car care products and the museum’s official car care products provider, sent bottles of its wheel cleaner and Speed Shine.

Electric Dreams paid out cash prizes for top-3 finishes by cars carrying its decals.  The Electric Dream Team also put in many hours of time and effort in the organizing of the event.

 

Fantasy World’s Bonus Bucks, good for merchandise at its Lakewood, WA store, went to the top 8 finishers in each class.

Professor Motor  provided two essential elements of the event, the controllers used with the two Scalextric Sport tracks and the Maxxtrac M06X handout spec tires used by all the cars.

Two Scalextric Sport 4-lane tracks made up the layout for the race.  They functioned as one 8-lane layout, managed by a DS timing and scoring system.  Race director Alan Smith provided one of the tracks.  The other came from Lighthouse Christian Center, a church in Puyallup, WA that uses its track for various church events.

The museum rented folding office tables to make up the platform on which the tracks were set up.  The original design of the 2-track layout, done on track design software, took into account the various sizes of tables available, enabling the table arrangement to be planned as an integral part of the layout design. Both the track layout and the table arrangement were designed entirely on a computer.   The layout had never actually been built before the setup day for the event

 

Here you can see how the table arrangement was laid out to fit the track plan and provide turn marshal access.

The finished layout fit the tables with only very minor adjustments and worked well for racing.  The only significant problem turned out to be the concrete pillar, at the left of the photo above, that interfered more than expected with the sight lines of two of the drivers’ positions.  Those two driving positions had to be moved to the opposite corner of the layout using extender cables for the controller cords.  The two tracks, though different in configuration, were within 6 inches of being the same length.  With two different track designs and one track running clockwise and the other counterclockwise the drivers had to learn quickly in the limited amount of practice time available.

The tracks were laid out so that the start/finish lines were adjacent to each other about 2/3 of the way down the longest straightaway,  A line of borders in the middle provided space for the ends of the light bridges and also kept the cars on the two innermost lanes from sideswiping each other entering the side-by-side straights.

The museum’s guest services manager, Jeff Keys, expressed great satisfaction with the event, which was understood by all involved in its creation to be something of an experiment and learning experience.  Its success clears the way for more slot car racing at ACM.  There are plans for two events in 2014, one in April and the other in October.  The details of the April event will be announced as soon as the organizers analyze the lessons learned and incorporate them into the planning.  The eventual goal is to hold slot car races of national and world stature in keeping with ACM’s own stature as one of the premiere automobile museums in the US.  The events will have two central purposes.  One is simply to be a lot of fun for participants and for the museum visitors who will watch some part of the racing as they circulate through the area of the tracks on event days.  The other is to re-create in miniature specific race series and eras from the rich history of motorsports, celebrating automotive competition in all its many forms.   This first event has made a good start toward achieving those purposes.

A Slot Car Tribute To Carroll Shelby

If you were to compile a short list of the most influential people in the history of motor sport, Carroll Shelby would have to be on it.  His achievements transcended the confines of the automotive world and became part of American popular culture and folklore.  His Cobras, Mustangs, and Ford GT40s resonated in the consciousness of millions of people who otherwise never paid much attention to racing.  They became historic icons and demonstrations of American prowess on the race track and on the world stage – literally patriotic symbols that touched the very center of what it meant to be American.

Even before he began racing Shelby had lived a varied and adventurous life.  He was a military pilot, an oil field roughneck, and, of all things, a chicken farmer, to name only a few.  He began his racing career in the car-crazy culture of southern California, competing in road races in an array of different cars.  Before long, he was able to move to Europe, then the undisputed world center of sports car racing.  He often drove in the bib overalls he had worn on his chicken farm.  The rarefied world of sports car racing had seen titled aristocrats competing in blazers and ties but never anything quite like this.

Aston Martin DBR1, 1959 LeMans winner

The highlight of Shelby’s career as a driver came in 1959 when he and Roy Salvadori won the 24 Hours of LeMans in an Aston Martin DBR1.  But not long after his LeMans victory he was diagnosed with a heart condition that forced his permanent exit from the racing cockpit.  His drive and spirit of adventure remained undiminished, however, and he began looking for other things do do.  When Ford debuted its small-block V8 engine Shelby’s fertile mind made the connection that would make him world famous.  He immediately saw that Ford’s V8  weighed little more, and sometimes less, than the 4 and 6-cylinder engines powering most of the world’s production sports cars while easily delivering twice the power with potential for much more.  He figured that all he had to do was combine it with an existing production chassis  to make a car with Ferrari-level performance at a fraction of the price, a car that could be serviced by any Ford dealer and prepared for racing using a wealth of aftermarket performance parts already being designed and produced.

Cobra roadster, MRRC MC11061

The result, of course, was the Cobra roadster, one of the most iconic cars ever produced and certainly the most imitated and replicated.  Shelby persuaded Ford to supply him with engines and British sports car builder AC Cars to provide slightly upgraded examples of its Ace sports car, minus engines.  The first Cobra built was used as a show car. Displayed at auto shows and other events and used for giving journalists test drives, it was repainted several times in different colors to give the impression that numerous cars had already been produced.  The second one became the first Cobra race car.  Almost from its debut in 1962 the Cobra cut a swath through big-bore SCCA production-class racing unequaled before or since.  Competing primarily against Corvettes and E-type Jaguars the Cobras dominated the production division of the US Road Racing Championship (USRRC) and could even be a threat in the modified class.  By 1963 Shelby had a team of Cobra roadsters competing in European FIA events, driven by some of the greatest drivers of the day such as Dan Gurney, Phil Hill, and Bob Bondurant.  in 1965 Shelby introduced a redesigned Cobra roadster powered by Ford’s mighty 427 cubic inch big block engine.  It went on to win SCCA races and championships for years to come.  One was clocked at 198 mph on the oval portion of the Daytona road course, establishing the 427 as the most fearsome Cobra of them all.

Cobra 427, Ninco 50585

The roadster was far from the only project underway at Shelby’s factory near the Los Angeles airport.  The success of production class Cobras led almost inevitably to the idea of combining the Ford V8 with one of the mid-engined sports-racing cars of the day to produce a dominator for the modified class of the USRRC.  Two chassis immediately suggested themselves as candidates for the transplant – the Lotus 19 and the Cooper Monaco.  After evaluating both, Shelby’s brain trust chose the Cooper, a heavier but stronger car deemed capble of accommodating a huge power increase more successfully.  Before long a batch of cars modified by the Cooper works to Shelby’s specifications arrived at the Los Angeles factory and shortly thereafter, V8 engines installed, were on the USRRC starting grid.  As with the roadsters, the Cooper-Cobras, sometimes called King Cobras, quickly became the cars to beat in 1964.   Also during this time Shelby’s shop shoehorned a Ford engine into a Sunbeam Alpine and developed it into the prototype Sunbeam Tiger.

Cooper-Cobra, Monogram 85-4884

When Ford introduced the Mustang in 1964 the company was eager to build an image for it through racing and Shelby was the obvious choice to make it into a winning race car.  The GT350, as Shelby’s modified Mustang fastback was dubbed, combined Cobra performance with at least some measure of real-world practicality for a wider range of drivers.  The racing “R” version was a stripped down race car that more than met Ford’s performance and image-building objectives, helping make the Mustang one of the auto industry’s great success stories.  In its first season of competition driver-journalist Jerry Titus drove a GT350R to the SCCA B-production national championship.

GT350, 1965 SCCA B-prodution champion, Jerry Titus - Monogram 85-4866

By the end of the 1963 season the Cobra team had learned from experience that while the roadster had plenty of power to beat the competition on short, twisty courses it fell short of the aerodynamic qualities needed to win on high-speed circuits like LeMans against slickly-bodied competitors such as the Ferrari 250 GTO.  Fortunately, the solution to the problem required only following Ferrari’s example, taking advantage of the same provision of the FIA GT class rules that had allowed Ferrari to build and race a very limited number of GTOs based on the Ferrari road car chassis.  Shelby hired designer Pete Brock to create an aerodynamic Cobra coupe to win the FIA GT championship.  Brock’s design first appeared at Daytona in February of 1964 and was immediately named the Daytona Coupe.  It led its class against a pack of GTOs until a fire during a pit stop forced its retirement. From there, however, the coupes, soon six in number, went on to a string of victories including a class win at LeMans with Dan Gurney and Bob Bondurant sharing the driving.  Because the Cobras did not contest all the races in 1964 Ferrari managed to squeak out the championship, but the following year the Daytona Coupes did take the championship away from Ferrari.

Cobra Daytona coupe, 1964 LeMans GT winner, Monogram 85-4860

LeMans, 1964, featured the much-anticipated debut of Ford’s GT40.  This sleek sports prototype car was more than just Ford’s bid for international recognition as a builder of world-class cars.  It became, for many Americans, a patriotic exercise pitting the new world against the old.  The GT40, with its top speed in excess of 200 mph, showed great promise but lacked development and, therefore, 24-hour durability. None of them finished the 24 hours that year and their unreliability continued through the rest of the season.  The Ford racing department concluded that it needed to put the GT40 project, scattered among several organizations, into the hands of one contractor that could take total responsibility for making the car a winner.  Impressed with Shelby’s Cobra successes, Ford gave him the job.

As soon as the cars arrived Shelby’s team launched into an intensive testing and development program that uncovered and fixed many of the design’s weaknesses.  They took a set of heavily revised GT40s, now painted in Shelby’s trademark electric blue and white color scheme,  to the Daytona 1965 season opener and scored an overall win, sweetened further by a Cobra victory in the GT class.  At Sebring a few weeks later the GT40s raced through a downpour of biblical proportions and again won  the prototype class, outrun only by Jim Hall’s Chaparral, a lighter car built to much less restrictive rules and competing in a different class.  At Le Mans the GT40s again failed to go the distance, but this time they set such a fast pace for so long that all the works Ferraris ran themselves into the ground trying to keep up, and the win fell to Jochen Rindt and Masten Gregory in a privately entered, semi-obsolete Ferrari 250LM.

1966 Ford MkII - NSR 1060

Two of the Fords at LeMans that year were the ferociously fast MkII version, powered by a 7-liter (427 cubic inch) derivative of Ford’s successful NASCAR engine.  Though they did not finish they clearly showed the way to future victory, and the MkII became the focus of Ford’s and Shelby’s development for 1966.     The project had grown so large that Ford’s prime NASCAR contractor, Holman-Moody, was brought on board to manage part of the Ford armada.

The 1966 season opened once again at Daytona, the race distance extended now to 24 hours.  Shelby’s lead driver, Ken Miles, won the event with Lloyd Ruby, the Fords proving utterly dominant.  They won again at Sebring.  Ruby, by the way, was an inspired choice as a teammate for Miles.  He simply drove the car with whatever setup Miles wanted and always managed to go fast.  It made them a formidable pairing.

Ford MkII, LeMans 1966, Dan Gurney/Jerry Grant - Carrera 23736

The 1966 LeMans race was one for the ages.  Heavily covered and promoted by ABC television, it introduced millions of Americans to the exotic world of sports car endurance racing.  it was the decisive showdown with Ferrari that Henry Ford II had sought ever since Enzo Ferrari had spurned Ford’s attempt to buy his company.  From the start the red Shelby-entered car of Dan Gurney and Jerry Grant drove away from the Ferraris and the other Fords.  It seemed on its way to an easy victory until the 13th hour, when Grant brought the car to the pits with overheating.  Attempts to cure the problem failed and Gurney and Grant were done. By the last hour, Fords were running 1-2-3, well clear of all opponents, with Miles leading.  Henry Ford II decided he wanted a photo op finish with all three MkIIs passing under the checkered flag together.  Miles, with nearly a full lap lead on second-place Bruce McLaren, got the order to slow down and let McLaren catch up.  The third car, driven by NASCAR driver Dick Hutcherson, was two laps down.  The three cars crossed the line together with Miles slightly ahead.  Clearly, Miles had won the race, achieving the LeMans victory his performance and contributions to the GT40 project fully deserved – or so everybody thought.  Then the French officials announced that Miles had not won after all.  Because McLaren’s car had started the race several tens of yards behind that of Miles it was ruled to have covered a greater distance and was declared the winner.  It was a bitter blow to Miles, denying him not only his LeMans win but also the distinction of being the first driver to win Daytona, Sebring, and LeMans in the same year.  Wild rumors of conspiracy and manipulation sprang up and have loomed over that day ever since.

For Carroll Shelby it was the crowning glory of his career, forever cementing his place in the pantheon of motorsports immortals, only slightly tarnished by the finish line fiasco.  It was the most historic and significant LeMans victory of all time.  Following the ABC coverage of the finish, the network’s national evening news led with the announcement of Ford’s crushing 1-2-3 finish, the first time anybody in America could remember a motorsports event other than the Indianapolis 500 being accorded such prominence.  It was treated not just as a triumph for Ford but also for America.  And Shelby was the central figure in that triumph.

His team won again in 1967, probably the most dominating victory in LeMans history.  Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt cruised to the win in a Ford MkIV, developed from Ford’s radical J-car, which had been tested in 1966 but not raced.  Their car was so superior they could run most of the race conservatively enough to also win the Index of Performance prize, an award that usually went to tiny 1-liter French cars.   It was a victory tinged with tragedy, however.  Ken Miles had been killed several months before at Riverside in an accident during a J-car test.

Shelby also enjoyed success in the TransAm series.  His Mustang coupes,  prepared using techniques developed for the GT350, were the key to championship wins for Ford in 1966 and 1967.  Jerry Titus was Shelby’s lead driver in the series.  The Shelby TransAm cars, in the hands of many different owners and drivers, also won SCCA races for decades afterward, as did the Cobras and GT350s.  Virtually every competition car he had a hand in still carries on his memory at vintage car races all over the world.

By 1971 Shelby had closed down his racing operation but he remained active and involved in the world of automotive performance.  Over the succeeding years he had his hand in many projects, including concept cars of his own design, input into the development of the Dodge Viper, and other projects for Ford, Chrysler, and General Motors.  He also created the Shelby CanAm spec racer for the Sports Car Club of America and produced “continuation” Cobras made official by VIN numbers issued in 1966 but never used.  And last but not least, he marketed a mean package of chili mix.  He also had a continuing relationship with the Ford Mustang, lending his expertise and name to a series of  limited-edition Mustangs with ever-higher performance numbers.  At the time of his passing he was working on the development of the most powerful Mustang of all, a 1000-horsepower monster.  At the age of 89 he was looking forward to driving it at 200 miles per hour.

There are few, if any individuals whose automotive creations have been more frequently or extensively modeled by the world’s slot car makers (not to mention manufacturers of full-sized kit cars).  The slot car hobby owes him a debt of gratitude for inspiring some of the most popular and collectible slot cars in its history.  And the parade of new Cobra, GT40, and other Shelby car model releases is far from over.  Carroll Shelby will continue to fire the imaginations of slot car racers as well as enthusiasts of full-size racing for a long time to come.  A saying attributed to Shelby went something like this:  I’m not a mechanic.  I’m not an engineer.  I’m not anything in particular.  But I know that if you put good people together and let them do what they do best amazing things can happen.

Amazing things can happen. And they did.

Rest in peace, Carroll Shelby.  You will never be forgotten.

Possible future Pioneer projects?

Check out these photos from the Pioneer Models web site.  These are said to be creations from Pioneer USA (apparently Pioneer’s US distribution arm) that might (or might not) lead to future production models.

This one is described as a “phantom” current-model Camaro GT1 car that could possibly be built on the same chassis platform as one of the Pioneer tube-frame TransAm cars that are due out sometime next year.

This one is a “widebody” Chevy Lumina TransAm/IMSA GTO car that fits a Pioneer Mustang/Camaro chassis (and therefore would also fit a Scalextric TA Camaro chassis).  This car is also a “phantom” but it could easily morph into an Oldsmobile Cutlass, which was raced extensively in TransAm/IMSA and was essentially the same car.  It looks as though a lot of unorthodox thinking is being explored by Pioneer Models, and the results, no doubt, will be interesting.
