Vintage power boost
Two traditional rivals are lined up for this summit meeting. The Shelby AC Cobra took to the tracks achieving a breath-taking 240 km/h, and in 1965 it was ready to make Gran Turismo history. The attempt to break European dominance in the GT class with this Anglo-American sports car was a complete success. The specs of the opponent, the Corvette Sting Ray Coupé, are no less impressive. The growl of the V8 cylinder engine still has jaws dropping in crowds around the world. In 1967 at Le Mans the Corvette set a new speed record at 276 km/h. The originals would be almost priceless, but when they meet in the figure 8 on the 14.8-foot Carrera race circuit it’s the joy of driving that is priceless.

Scalextric C3834A McLaren M7C John Surtees, 1970 Dutch – Limited Edition—PRE-ORDER NOW!
No man is ever likely to emulate John Surtees’ feat of winning World Championships on two wheels and four. A racer who would be equally at home in the Halls of Fame of both motorcycle and car racing, ‘Big John’ rarely won the accolades his success deserved. Surtees’ prowess on motorcycles won him universal respect, and soon after trying out cars for Vanwall and Aston Martin in 1959, he switched full-time to cars in 1960. Having driven for Lotus, Ferrari, Honda and BRM, Surtees then set up Team Surtees in 1970. The season didn?t start to well with the first 3 races all ending in retirement, but in round 5 at the Dutch GP held at Zandvoort Surtees got his first point of the season. Surtees had to work hard for the victory after Qualifying 14th, but after some hard work and some luck through others retiring Surtees held on to the final points position.
