Scalextric F1 series

New F1 series 2005, testing will start after the end 6th round, bo has been testing the Renualt F1 so far no problems except that he worn out the rear tyres after 200 laps of racing.

The other 3 teams, McLaren and Williams both experienced rear end gear problems. The toyota tema had no problems after 200 laps. We are only running the front sport button magnets for the up coming series 2005.

Mmmm,

Might get another $29.00 special off Clive and give her a coat of Red paint.....

Is that a McLaren or a Williams???

Excellent work!

Looks like a McLaren to me. The tires are wets.

Annoyed at my Williams gear, we tested them racing last weekend, and it stopped working in the last race. Still had enough points to win the night though ;)

Oh, it was just a little practice night at Bo's if anyone wondered.

Thanks Bo!

It looks great, I might do one of those me thinks. A lot easier than getting our Ninco F1 to hook up and be competitive on our layout....

Best Wishes,

Ozslotz.

based on current performance, i'm thinking minardi or toyota.
minardi has a certain "we're here for the racing" spirit that appeals whereas toyota seems a bit corporate.

So if I go with minardi, I can use this button magnut, right?

Nimrod

We start the series this weekend but all the liveries wont be completed before we race. I think he will have one BAR completed and Devious is pretty busy doing the decals for all the teams not covered by Scalextric.

Next Round at Wilmot is on the 13th of November, possibly the last time the track will be used at that location if the rumours are true.

Rumours?
Bo has already marked out the floor of his Racing laboratory (i.e. his garage) to take the Willmot track. When he starts hiding his secret tyre cleaning spray, THEN we know the move is serious.
