All of this week's news of arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #25/2022 PDF here!

 

It has been a slim week for deliveries but that is not to say what has appeared is not of quality or interest. For example, take the delivery we received from Spark this afternoon which offers more late season 2021 Formula 1 subjects, 2020 DTM BMW M4s and a hillclimb Matra. But… if you are truly into your classic Porsche racing prototypes then you have a treat in store. There are Targa Florio, Monza 1000kms & Kyalami 908/03s, psychedelic Kyalami 917K, Interserie 917/30s and Can-Am 917/10s, our favourite being the Brumos Peter Gregg car.

Opel Manta 400 6th RAC 1985 #14 McRae/Grindrod 1:18 - Reference IXO18RMC098

 

A new 1:24 plastic kit release is by Revell, a nicely detailed souvenir of Porsche’s first outright win of the Le Mans 24hrs, the Salzburg entered 917K driven by Richard Attwood & Hans Herrmann.  In the 3D printed resin production from DSN43 we offer the Tony Pond/Dave Richards Opel Kadett GTE rallied to 4th on the 1975 RAC & another GRD S73 sports prototype raced in the 1973 Villa Real.  Meanwhile, a very small delivery from Ixo offers the works Ford Fiesta R5 of Suninen from the 2021 Croatia rally as well as Jimmy McRae’s 1985 RAC rally AC Delco Opel Ascona 400 available in 18th scale.

 

BBR's boxes brought two 18th scale hand built Ferrari models of the 1959 Paris show 250GT SWB & 1966 365 California Spider along with 1:43 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAM along with display case and wire wheel accessory set restocks.  An increasingly rare appearance of something ‘new’ from Oxford with a re-colouring of its Ford Cortina Mk2 Crayford Convertible.  We also enjoyed opening the Autocult boxes finding a Jeep motorhome, the 1935 FRM Jaray and our favourite, the tiny 1945 Bugatti T68 Coupe prototype.

If you missed it, here is the previous edition of FSW Weekly, the current Future Production listings, Sale Department and our Rarities Department too.

Last weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix was enthralling. Wet qualifying putting Alonso on the front row and then epic chase of Verstappen by Carlos Sainz Jnr kept the race alive to the very end, the winning margin was under a second. The second year of GT3 rules DTM offers quality racing with all bar Honda/Acura and Lexus represented on the grid and 3-time champion Rene Rast winning the last round. On the GT3 subject, anyone else baffled by the ACO/WEC wanting to mess with the look (at a huge cost to the competitor) of the current cars for next year’s races?  At Hidden Valley down under, De Pasquale, Mostert & Waters shared out the race wins in the really cool looking indigenous liveries race.  The weekend we can look forwards to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Safari rally starts today, WTCC is in Spain, the IMSA field visit the epic Watkins Glen & NASCAR race round & round Nashville. Enjoy!
