Slot Car Magazine – July 2017 By Marc Abbott, Ric Woods
eBook (PDF): $1.63
Following on from the UK Festival in May that we aren’t mentioning anymore (whoops there's a big article on it by Gary Cannell), we have a few more new car tests than we normally have,... More > hopefully sufficiently up-to-date to still be of interest. What is laughingly called ‘my bank account’ is in for a stern test over the coming months, with some great new and forthcoming releases. On the subject of which, I mention at the end of my Capri test that I would very much like to see the Brian Muir Wiggins Teape car released. We got very close to getting one a few years back, now it seems that it might again be a possibility, IF there are sufficient pre-orders placed. Now, there’s your chance to make your poor old editor a very happy man indeed! I hope you all enjoy this issue. I know I did! Ric< Less

We have a bumper issue this time. I’ll not list all the items we have managed to include for your entertainment – after all, there’s a list of contents just over there – but... More > let’s just say that if you don’t find something you like, you were probably expecting a magazine about mobile gambling machines… We’ve gone and passed another anniversary, probably a sign more of our own bloody-mindedness rather than any enduring popularity, but I do want to say a very sincere thanks to all of those brilliant people who have filled these pages with great slot-based features. Please can you keep doing so? Right, you’ll be wanting to look at the other pages now. If you do happen to come across us at any random slot car-based event in May, do come and say hello. And tell us we’re great. And buy more copies of the magazine.< Less

In the Northern Hemisphere at least, things are warming up, slot-besotted Brits are discarding their coats as they head up into the attic to play, you can no longer still see your breath in the club... More > room after eight o’clock on a race night. The one event in the year that we look forward to more than Christmas – Gaydon – is only a couple of months away. Some of us have even started smiling again. Adventures in rubber and sponge, an HO head-to-head, Hub on Heat for Hire, Alfas and anticlockwise addicts all add up to a nicely varied issue, I think. Come on, there must be something in there you like! As I was writing this, news came through of the passing of another racing hero. As a motor sport enthusiast of many years, I must admit that I’m finding it impossible to sum up John Surtees in a few words; so many facets, so many achievements. Let’s just say there will never be another quite like him. Rest in Peace, sir.< Less
