Saen was taken from us quite suddenly after loosing his fight with cancer on New Years Day 2017.
Our condolences to Saen’s family and friends.
A few few photos to remember him by:
Another lovely old car on display, thanks to Kevin M for sharing. The “gimbal” pickup guide is amazing.
Kevin Writes:- “Scalextric Tin Plate Ferrari 375, C 1957-1959. Motor and rear axle are integrated into one unit, gimbal wheel pickup guide. One rear wheel has hard rubber for drive, the other three are hard plastic, helping the car slide into corners. The driver figure is moulded from rubber.”
Sean is always working on something new. This truck has been developing over a few weeks/months I imagine. Looks great.
Not sure about the JPS on the Fly prime mover and the other manufacturer of cancer sticks on the trailer, but it still looks good.

Kevin M has two of these vintage slot cars, one restored and one a project car he plans to bring up to the same standard. The difference really shows between the restored car and the Lola still waiting for restoration.
“Mid to late 1960’s Tamiya 1/24th scale Lola T70 Spyder Can-Am Car. Inline brass chassis with rear suspension, Mabuchi 36D motor.”
“Mid to late 1960’s Tamiya 1/24th scale Lola T70 Spyder Can-Am Car. Inline brass chassis with rear suspension, Mabuchi 26D motor. This car is in the original condition as raced in the 1960s.” (Although it probably looked better in the 60’s – ed.)
I was unaware that Tamiya had ever made Slot Cars! Thanks for sharing this with us Kevin!
Sadly we bid farewell to a Slotcar enthusiast.
Many will know Richard as just “Kim”, a regular racer when his health permitted.
Our condolences to Kim’s family and friends.

Another great event, on a new, spectacular track.
We dabbled with live streaming to our own “Slotmasters Channel”. See more at http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCc_pzpJrsWGNthd28DQhKgg.
This resulted in mixed success, but I think we will do more of this.
Below, just a snippet uploaded from my iphone! 🙂
Results. The image says it all. The “Jokers Team” win by 49 laps over team NSR.
For those members who would like to leave feedback on the Club Forum, here are few tips/guides:
At one of our recent committee meetings it was agreed we would try to put together an assortment of “club cars” to help new starters ease into the full comp.
I have a number of cars I’m looking to donate, but Barry beat me to it. We have our first donation!
I’ll try to clean these cars up and restore to original/class spec. More donations wanted! 🙂
The count so far: 1 x Muscle Car, 1 x LMP
*** UPDATE*** I have been advised that other donations have been made! Kevin M has donated a few cars to the cause. Thanks Kevin.
