Thanks Mark, a good development from Slot It.

On the downside, Slot It have cut N22 compound tyres from their range apparently. We just about use them exclusively on our gloss/satin MDF tracks.

Have you heard if this is ongoing, or temporary?

The smaller mold - the 1171 is already re-done, the tyres are made, packed off - I have 50 packs somewhere in the capable - or should that be culpable hands of DHL at 38,000 feet between UK and our hemisphere as part of my monthly order.
The larger 1172 mold will apparently be further away. There will be a progress update in September after their summer closure and sanity returns to the northern hemisphere.

So for Oz, I guess it just depends on the timing when Jim and Cathy are landing their next Italian origin order.

And FWIW - not that it is worth much, me being a very small distributor in the smaller wood track markets, - the N22 is my favourite compound and I would like to see it in F1, in a wider mold than the 1172 and in a higher profile in both widths, which I may have mentioned to them in passing, occasionally, ...... well several times. Okay, I may have been renamed "that broken record down in the pacific basin"
I would also like to see the N18 in all the same mold sizes
Think "SuperGrip" and " Ultragrip" range matching.

So much easier to true than F22 and F15

Good news, so sounds like a temporary shortage only.

Update from Slot.it regarding the new website
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ladies and Gentlemen, the NEW slot.it site is going LIVE next Monday, Aug 5th!
It took us a long time as it's not a cosmetic job but a completely rewrite.
Being so new, it will not only be great, shiny, and attractive, but it will also come with bugs, issues, omissions that we ask you please to let us know and be patient with.
This is the first step. We're working now on the SPARES section which takes a large chunk of the site. For now, if you go to the spares site you can download the Slot.it spares catalogue. Over the time, each part in the catalogue will come with its own separate description and PDF sheet.

A quick summary of the Slot.it products coming out in 2020
We now have 3 Maserati GT3 liveries to look forward to - plus one in the Policar range.
But the most interesting news to me - was that they are planning a Nissan Skyline, and have shown the first 3 liveries.
Those wanting a Chappy 2F - that's a new mould as well.

The Skyline will be a nice addition with all the Group A cars out there already. Nice to see a new Sauber Mercedes too.

It's a nice car the Sauber - it's already available.
I meant to add - the PT1172N22 - the wider N22 tyre is available again

Slot.it who are based in northern Italy have been running half staff for a bit, now they are shutting for a week apart from the owners, who will take turnabout manning the phones and warehouse door.

Dear friends, good evening. Update from Reggio Emilia, Italy.

Our wonderful team has been working all week to ship the pending orders and the cars that just came in. We've rearranged offices to minimize interpersonal contact to a maximum of two people in the same area, restricted access to common areas, rotated shifts to reduce the number of persons in the office; someone has been working from home, someone was asked to take holidays. By doing this we've successfully remained open and safe.
Our staff and Maurizio Gibertoni, that as you know is the other partner in the company, must be applauded.
Reggio Emilia, my dear hometown and home of our company, is not doing too bad, compared to several other parts of Italy. However, working under these conditions is very stressful, and we all have relatives that are worried for us or that we must take care of and protect.

Therefore, we've decided that we will close down the company for one week. We will enjoy the extra time spent with our dear ones. Maurizio Gibertoni and I will alternate in the office, to answer phone calls, receive parcels if any, and do some work. Our server may be down for a few days for maintenance.
A special thought and prayer for our friends in Igualada, whose region is severely hit by the virus. [ That is the base of IBB, the brands ScaleAuto and DS Systems of the Basas family ]

This dark cloud will eventually go away, but there's a silver lining already: the production samples of our long awaited Maserati GT3 are leaving China and are expected soon, after which shipment may happen and, by the time the cars are here, things may have eased up, or so we hope.
Be safe and in good health and enjoy every moment of your time.
Thank you for your support. Maurizio Ferrari

Other companies are affected as well of course.
Thunderslot is located between Milan and Brescia, right in the middle of Lombardy.
I imagine they will have to close. - I might get an update on that tomorrow from the NZ distributor.
NSR is further south in Salerno. Same distributor as Thunderslot, I'll try and find out from Tony tomorrow.

In Spain
SRC have just shut their doors for a period - the Alicante region (Costa Blanca) where the factory is located, is hit quite hard - that's where we lived, and we are getting daily reports from our friends there.

But Last night the government declared a state of emergency nationwide. So they will all be closed. Cartrix Mitoos which is 20km inland from Alicante in Elche Fly. SCX, Ninco - and of course ScaleAuto as mentioned above.

Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has announced the measures that will apply during the state of emergency in Spain, which were agreed in Cabinet today.
These will initially be in place for 15 days – and can then be extended by Parliament.
According to the Royal Decree signed today, people in Spain will only be able to leave their homes for these reasons – to buy food, medicines and items of basic necessity; to go to health centres and hospitals; to go to work; to return to their place of primary residence; to care for elderly and vulnerable people; to visit the bank; and in case of emergency.
They will have to travel alone, unless they have mobility problems or are vulnerable people.
All shops and outlets will have to close – and only supermarkets, chemists, petrol stations, newspaper shops, vets, hairdressers, opticians and telecommunications can remain open.
The emergency services will ensure that the measures are observed.


You guys in Oz have community infection already. We have been less affected in NZ until now, but next days will tell us whether a Danish woman and Oz guy who arrived here with it have spread it in major centres before seeking help
- And another Princess Cruise ship has it - this time in Akaroa near Christchurch.

I love the old saying that ended each briefing in Hill Street Blues cop show

If there is a reported case there will be many others either infected but not sick enough to worry or many others that will appear in the next week. We are 2 weeks behind Italy you are 2 weeks behind us. Good luck that you and your family are reasonably healthy with no heart or lung conditions as they are the ones who will suffer.
