This website was created at the turn of the century....the twentieth Century.
A lot has changed in the online world since then...which you will definitely notice once you start browsing the site...
...because, besides a minor upgrade in the mid zero's, this website has not.

This Site is not Mobile device friendly (as it was built way before Smartphone and Tablets)
This Site has no hot links to Facebook, Instagram Snapchat et all
Posting images and articles still require some work.

On the plus side
This site will not collect your data on your personal preferences (its to dumb to do so)
This site will not show Google ads for commercial gain (because we're to dumb to do so)

Please see, treat and use this website like a period Sportscar
It still looks good, it still performs good, but its not on par with the latest technology...
...which is not always a bad thing ;)

It still does what it was designed to do so, share info between those who want to communicate.

Time for a change
There will be some changes made to the site in the coming weeks. Where in the past the site focussed mainly on 1/24 slot cars, the Events & Championships we (co) organised. The new focus will be broader, but with a stricter selection. Items on the site will still focus on Sportscars, expanded to any (slot race) scale be it 1:64, 1:43, 1:32, 1:28 and 1:24. It may even expand to RC scales (1:10, 1:8, 1:4)
... as long as they are to scale..and respect and where possibly replicate 1/1 motorsport.

Our focus will not be on news, hot topics etc etc. There are far better instant platforms that provide this service.
This site will try to provide an Archive of interesting articles that you may want to read...without having to dig deep in a long thread of posts ..in order to find it back. Like a kind of "Readers Digest" if you can still remember what that means ;)

Headlines & Articles and how you can contribute to them.
As an example of what that could look like I have pulled some articles from the site archives and added some that had been posted on other platforms. As you can see the main language this site will communicate in will be English. But if you check the forum on this site there are sub fora for post in French and German.
Should you want to post content, build reports, news of a Scale Sportscar event on this site: The forum will be your best tool to do so.
The Site administrators will act like Magazine Editors and can take a forum post and promote it into a full article.


Note: All previous data on 1:24 slot cars and the results off all events (dating back to 2003) will be preserved and remain accessible.

Bentley Continental GT3 1:32, Build report part 1
Back in September 2012, when Bentley unveiled the concept for their first race car in a decade, it made a stunning impression. Choosing the Continental as a platform for their GT3 racer caused many to either love it or hate it.
As most would consider the Road GT is was based on, as a car more suited for a Cannonball Run, not the ideal weapon of choice to go GT racing. In the past 3 years the team of Bentley engineers have proved them all wrong, having developped the "Conti" in to a very potent package under the current GT3 regs.

For us 1/32nd engineers, creating a "competitive" Conti GT3 has been a bit more difficult task, at least such was the case until the summer of this year........ full story....
BMW Z4 GT3, 2013 team Schubert VLN 1/24
Gents
Here are some pictures of my latest Scaleauto, the BMW Z4 in 2013 team Schubert VLN livery.
A lot of detailing has been done to get the basic Scaleauto White-kit up to 2013 specs.
I will post more on how and what I did later on...for now I hope you'll enjoy the pictures.

Lets see how many differences you guys can spot compared to the base Scaleauto kit

RfH goes digital in 1/32 oXigen Le Mans 24 hours
In het Engelse Henley on Arden, een klein plaatsje onder de rook van Birmingham, streden afgelopen weekend 12 internationale 1/32 slotrace teams 24 uur lang op een 60 meter, 4 sporen Ninco baan die een heuze kopie was van het beroemde Circuit de la Sarthe. Wie de sporthal van het Warwick college betrad waande zich even niet in een besneeuwd Engeland, maar in het zonnige Frankrijk van Les 24 heures du Mans.

Het technisch reglement voor deze race dat geheel in de Le Mans spirit geschreven was, bied vele mogelijkheden om een geheel "eigen" 1/32 slotcar te bouwen. Dit en de uitdaging van het digitaal racen op zo'n groot circuit waren genoeg redenen voor het Racing for Holland team om wederom weer eens een uitstapje te maken naar de schaal waarin het voor hen toch allemaal begonnen was.

Ook dit jaar ondersteunde de Slotshop als hoofd sponsor de deelname van het Racing for Holland slotrace team in de Oxigen 24 hours of Le Mans, dat dit jaar met twee teams deelnam aan wat met gemak het grootste digitale endurance slotrace evenement ter wereld mag worden genoemd.
