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 :-(
