Cheers Manic :)

Is anyone else planning on sending an entry? If not, we can close it on Monday to give late comers the weekend to send something.

Nice photo Mike, love the lights. I wouldn't be worried about being late as it looks like the photo comp will continue on...........

Regarding the Lola, can you comment regarding its performance relative to the Scalextric Mustangs yet?

Cheers Manic :lol:

Hey Matt,
I still think the Lola has the edge over a Camaro, it's just as fast, has a great magnet and is lower to the ground, so handles better and has less tendency to 'let go'. I haven't raced them side by side though, but the ground clearance on the Lola is very low, so with nicely trued tyres lowering it a bit, kicking in even more magnet, I just can't see how it wouldn't edge the Trans Ams, of any variety.

The new liveried Lola is great, and on a par with my favourite other Lola - by that, I mean it's not the dog that my Banana Joe's livery was... :lol:

Tough call isn't it, in terms of getting the crown back... Corvette, Camaro or Lola B)

Well, if it's still open, I'll post another entry into the 'original untouched' category - another shot of the backmarkers at the 2004 le Mans... :lol:
Dawn beckons, and they're still running - even if not on the lead lap.

Hi Guy's,

Now let's put this comp to an end.
Sorry for missing so long but Work, Family, Friends and life in general can throw you a few twists some times, ya gotta move on though.

Before I go one, I'd just like to say Thankyou to my good buddy Manic.
I dumped a bit on his plate and he took it all in, Thanks mate.

I really wanted to enter a few pics too but never got the time.
Here is one I hope you all enjoy.

Now it may look a little farmiliar :(
Thanks again Manic, this gift will be the centre piece of my race room in the new house.



OK now where do we vote!

Apologies for the delays, things have been madder than usual. I hope to have all the photos tagged and voting instructions post on the weekend.

This time will be different to the previous competition because of the number of entries, because the board's poll function can't deal with that. I've set up a new mailbox so you send send an email listing your top 3 entries. The results will be posted after two weeks.

Cheers
Glenn
