So the mailman got me more goodies this week. And thematically this could have been posted yesterday or today, a distinct lack of time yesterday meant today was the day!
WHUTTTTTT....!!!??? Martini logos on a diecast car on sale where kids are free to pick a copy up at any bookstore???
Do you remember when current Ferrari F1 team driver Kimi Raikkonen left F1 at the end of the 2009 season to begin his rallying career? No? Neither did I. I totally forgot about that.
By the time this post is up, the 2017 edition of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb would be well underway. So here is a iconic Pikes Peak winner - Walter Röhrl’s Audi Sport quattro S1.
This is Majorette’s version of the 2015 World Rally Championship Volkswagen Polo ‘Monte Carlo Rally’ WRC driven by Sebastian Ogier.
I haven’t been buying most of the rally Car Collection cars for the last few issues because they’re not what I want, but this is quite a nice model.
Carlos Sainz’s rally Subie Impreza from the Acropolis Rally 1995. This 1/64 model is made by Japanese rally car specialist CM’s Toys.
Ford Europe built the Focus RS WRC to compete in the World Rally Championship (hence the WRC in the name, with RS standing for Rallye Sport) between 1999 and 2010.
There are a few other cars from the Bburago series that I’ve seen in the wild & added to my collection in the past two years - Mclaren 12C GT3, Maserati MC12, a Porsche 911 GT3 RS in Flying Lizard livery, a Lamborghini Murcielago FIA GT. But I’d never seen this Polo before. Until last week, that is.
Happy new year to everyone!
You guys ever heard of this Spanish bloke named Carlos Sainz?
It’s already Tuesday here in Singapore, so I shall post my Teutonic Tuesday post...!
I’ve never labelled myself as a gamer because the few times I did that early on, I was laughed at when I told folks that my addictions were series like Need For Speed, Colin McRae Rally & Rallisport Challenge. While the NFS series of games (specifically NFS II SE) made me lust after the McLaren F1, the Subaru WRX STi…
I saw AlienProbe’s post on his Majorette Citroen DS3 WRC, and I decided it was time to dust off these two Fiesta WRCs I had lying around somewhere... Not 1/64 but 1/58 scale. Majorette cars do vary in scale sometimes... But nonetheless these are superb in their own right. There are two versions here: one is the Team…
I was quite into following Toyota in WRC back in the days of the WRC Corolla. Was excited to get my hands on one of these.
