Sneak Peak

Touring Car Legends 1964 ATCC Mini Coopers - C3586A
The 1964 Australian Touring Car Championship was contested over a single race staged at the Lakeside circuit in

Queensland, Australia, on 26 July 1964. Battling against the more powerful cars of Holden, Jaguar and Ford the

two mighty Minis of Brian Foley and Peter Manton finished fourth and fifth overall and 1st and 2nd in their

class.



This special issue twin-pack celebrates the epic battles between two top Australian drivers of the 1960s and their

‘giant-slaying’ Mini Coopers and also marks 50 years since the first Manton & Foley Scalextric Mini Cooper cars

were released exclusively for the Australian market.

The 2013 Scalextric V8 Supercars
have finally arrived!!

 
 

6 May 2014 - Approximately 5 months late the 2013 Scalextric V8 Supercars have arrived and are available for sale at your local toy/hobby/slot shop & also on Ebay. 


Looking at the pics, C3470 #5 Pepsi Max Ford Performance Racing FG Falcon driven by Mark Winterbottom looks AWESOME.


In regards to C3471 #1 Red Bull Racing Aust. VF Holden Commodore driven by Jamie Whincup i am dissappointed. 

 

Most of us knew Southern Model Supplies/ Scalextric were using the VE body & chassis but it looks like they made no attempt to at least make it look more like a VF Commodore....ie front lights, rear lights and the rear wing to mention a few.


Since 2003, Southern Model Supplies/Scalextric have always put in the effort to replicate the real V8 Supercars but this is the 1st time they have not i was hoping the 5 month delay had something to do with change . . . . .i was wrong :-(


VE to VF Repaint




Here is a repaint by the

Ebay seller "Roboff63" .


As you can see HE converted a VE

 into a VF commodore!!


He used VF COMMODORE rear

light decals and the Ford Falcon

FG rear wing to make it more

realistic to  the actual car..
