I biolut a 1/32 slot car from a kit, white with green nose, a few year ago . . . it does this, also swaps ends as if I was actually driving it!

a 50p blue tac'ed into a mini works wonders for handling, although they do get warm after a few laps

Remember Will ,Zef is the winner of handicap at Le Mans Classic in Grid 2 and ninth overall in a 356!
Does that mean he’s invited to the 356 International Drivers Club?

Oh yes....we have a special handshake and everything.....the only requirement for entry is that you have at some point sprung the boot lid on a 356 while spinning!!

By huge demand, we present the Mad Jack’ Pre-War race, named in honour of Richard ‘Mad Jack’ Shuttleworth, famous for his daring exploits in both aeroplanes and cars & winner of the first ever Donington Grand Prix, in 1935.

Watch these fabulous machines and their drivers, racing hard around the glorious curves of Donington Park.

Another exclusive from ‘Historic Motorsport TV’:

Happy to help but the voice over needs a bit of help
The race is a mixture of specials and real cars that could be bought
Both the winner and Alvis are specials followed by the standard Nash, Talbot, AM Ulsters,Riley .Morgan 3 wheeler etc.
I understand the races going forward will either be for HTP real cars with a totally separate race for specials.. ( or no specials!)
Interesting to see what happens at Silverstone but am aware that there will be two races within one at Spa that was a success two years ago.
Let’s hope commentators understand what’s going on.

This week's HistoricMotorsportTV edited highlights is all about "tin-tops"

Four decades unleashed in a full one-hour race…Touring car star Steve Soper (in his RS500) takes on the immensely rapid R32 Skylines, E30 M3’s & BMW CSL (Batmobiles) in the Historic Touring Car Challenge.

Former F1 & WEC driver Tiff Needell in a Capri battles Batmobiles, Z28 Camaros, Alfa GTVs and Rover SD1’s in the Tony Dron Trophy.

Also from the 60’s, the epic battle between the Lotus Cortina’s and Mini Coopers in the much loved Under 2-litre Touring car category.

A huge thank you for all the messages of encouragement & feedback we have received, please support us by subscribing to our YouTube channel & share.

We have some exclusive and original videos coming soon, including our unique "take" on visiting some of the globe's most spectacular race tracks
