32nd Scalextric Club (21st May 2013)
Gran Touring cars grace the track at the London Scalextric Club this evening.
There’s a big grid so all 6 lanes are being used for 2.5 minute sprint races.
Tony let me try out some of his Moslers made by NSR. Each one has different components and layout so it’s a bigger variety than you might think.
I selected a slightly older one with a small transverse motor. It’s mounted at a very slight angle to give the axle some clearance. Very nicely balanced with strong corner speed and a lot of straight line performance.
Everyone else jumped the lights so got an automatic 5 second delayed start penalty! I could have got 1st but the crash lost me a place. Did the tyres before this race and it seemed to help a lot.
Had a close moment but held onto it and completed a clean race.
Was running in 2nd but a small crash with a slow marshall dropped me back to 4th.
