The company went into hiding over the European summer - starting to wonder if Chris the owner has a secret life outside of Slot Cars . . . . . :lol: :D

But over the past few weeks he has sprung back into life.
Here's some eye candy coming our way.

Toyota Celica - same livery as was done by MRRC. This one may be a tad quicker out of the box

Maybe not - those MRRC cars had the red 30k motor in them - they were quite quick. :P

Straight line speed has little bearing - utterly shite handling on wood. They needed a lot of work to get them to go well.
I had one way back.

Mac in our club made one go very well, but a lot of work.

Just heard some bad news. There has been a factory glitch in the production of the Toyota Celica, which is now pushed back to
release in Q1 2020

In a separate post you will see they are pulling release of the Nissan Skyline forward as a result, which will be made in December,
so should be our way in January

There is also another "LBH" - Lamborghini Huracan coming soon . . . well today actually, should arrive down under in December.

No news on the new release date for the Toyota Celica at top of page. Chris keeps things fairly close to his chest, but I am now wondering if it will be
Q3 before the moulds are done and it is slotted back into production, - the Corona-Virus is going tovreate big bottle necks of production in China
right through 2020.

Meanwhile in the other thread I have updated the ETA of the Skyline which replaces it in the 2020 Q1 release schedule.
Here is the other nice news
Due about the same time - as he completes local assembly, will be the white kit only of the new GT3 model BMW M6 - a running mate for the Huracan
