Yesterday's 24' x 11' circuit wasn't quite good enough.

I spent a bit of time this morning looking at the 24' x 11' circuit I'd designed yesterday and it seemed that there was room for improvement.

Because I've not posted for a number of days ...

... in the absence of my witty remarks, I decided that I should put something up for you all to admire: And so here they are; a couple of designs that we made this evening.

Let there be light -or is that back to day one?

Me: So, how far did we get?
You: We got as far as your birthday; and that was well over a month ago!
Me: Ah, okay ...

In my last post I introduced you to a penchant of mine (with regards to the SCALEXTRIC racing of course), namely multiple-to-single lane circuits.

What day is it now?

40 years old, and what does one receive for
his birthday?
Thank you very much Miles and family, it's a special edition Porsche 911, complete with gold spokes and all.

Thursday at the races ...

I have to apologise for the quality of this photograph; it was taken with my phone after maybe one or two ginger beers had been consumed.

There's no kidding going on here, it really was ginger beer -it's not that I'm a tea-totaler, nor is it that I couldn't find any booze, rather, the point is that this photograph was taken during the eponymous evening -okay, okay, I know that this term had been mis-used, so let's call it poetic licence.

Day something higher than three ...

Nancy bought into slot-car racing as soon as we set up the Digital Platinum Racing Set. This is Nancy by the way; whilst the unsavoury individual taking the photograph and reflected in her shades is me.

This is me Nancy, at the time we were sightseeing from a
boat in New York

For me, that moment of "buy-in" was [almost] priceless.

Great Suppliers (in the UK) for my Scalextric Stash

Looking for somewhere to buy your slot-car equipment? So was I, and these are the places that I use most frequently.
