Yes Luke, lane change piece came from Island Hobbies. They have quite a range of current Scalextric cars as well as other bits and pieces.

Re: RACE REPORT #304 - Jan 13th 2023 (BTCCnm, SCnm, GTnm, LMPnm)

Great evening as usual of racing at FRC. Besides those who actually raced, it was nice to have Peter and Nigel come by. Hopefully next time they will join in the racing action ! The track, although still not ideal, is now significantly more driver-friendly than before, due to Gordon's dogged determi...

Re: RACE REPORT #303 - Dec 3rd 2022 (VSGTnm, VSPRnm, KBnm, APCnm)

Great afternoon/evening as usual at FRC despite the smallish driver turnout. I was glad that we got to run the races that weren't done at the last event, especially as we got to see O'brie's lovely E-Type in action ! The races were great fun but the driving experience was diminished a little by the ...

Re: RACE REPORT #302 - Nov 12th 2022 (CMnm, HSnm, VSGTnm, VSPRnm)

Great time as usual at FRC despite the early challenges. The information available with the new system is truly blow mind ! Seems like either there's still some ironing out to do or some car caused a false lap reading and lap time for my throttle as my position in Race 1 is definitely incorrect as i...

Re: RACE REPORT #301 - Sep 10th 2022 (MPnm, GTnm, LMPnm, F1nm)

Great afternoon as usual at FRC ! Despite the challenges, we managed to have a lot of fun just driving and even getting in four races. Pity however that we didn't manage to get any IROC racing done but quite understandable in the circumstances. Lovely to see new cars appearing to race , especially w...

Re: RACE REPORT #300 - Aug 13th 2022 (KBnm, APCnm, BTCCnm, SCnm)

Great afternoon as usual of racing at FRC. It was a special event, made even more special with a good driver turnout and treats provided by Luke (cake), Alex (wontons) and Stan (cider). The four classes raced proved to be extremely entertaining...as expected. Was nice to see O'Brie's Charger actuall...

Great day of racing as usual at FRC despite the smallish turnout. Nick originally planned to come and race but then had a change of plan and said he couldn't race but was just coming to try out some cars to test if chips were in order ....and what a number of cars he had ! My favourite was the Alfa ...
