MRE Slot News 4 July 2013
NEW IN STOCK
This week we have new cars from SCALEXTRIC and FLY and SRC and RACER.
Two cars from SCALEXTRIC turned up on different days. First to arrive was the Holden Torana in 2SM Blues Union livery exactly as it raced at Bathurst. A few days later it was followed by the Ford GT40 entered at Le Mans by Ford France in 1966, looking very smart in its white coat with slender stripes.

FLY delivered a pair of SISU racing trucks. Fans of the FLY trucks will know these haven't been around for some time, so we are pleased to get them back on the shelves. With the MAN and Mercedes trucks readily available again, truck racing is really back up to speed with these super detailed models.

The RACER Group 5 Series has been very popular, and now you have the chance to decorate your cars. We have received complete kits of the Lancia Beta Montecarlo and the Zakspeed Capri, ready for painting and simple assembly. Many clubs are using the Group 5 cars as a club class, so a few different coloured cars on the track will liven up the grids.

DUE TO ARRIVE
We will have a limited number of the SRC Capri RS2600 Bilstein car available. This is a Limited Edition for Germany and very few are available in the UK so grab one while you can if you haven't already made an advance order, as there won't be a second delivery.

Sunoco is one of the classic liveries and just as collectable as Jagermeister, Gulf, JPS, and many others. The PIONEER Camaro SS is a finely detailed and fast car already, the Sunoco colours just make it that little bit better, and you should be able to decide for yourself as the cars are due next week.

The JSPC version of the Mazda 787B is on the way from MR SLOTCAR. Easily confused with the Le Mans winning car, the JSPC model has the Renown orange & green colours reversed and races with # 202.

SRC LUCKY STRIKE CAPRI RS2600. We told you about this car a few weeks ago, now we have pictures of the sign-off model which is being produced exclusively for South Africa. We have added it into the News Roundup section instead of the New Cars Announced section because we have not yet got confirmation of cars available in the UK. We have asked for a supply and are waiting for confirmation, so at this moment we are happy to take advance orders but must stress that we cannot guarantee delivery yet. Hopefully more news next week.
