All of this week's news of arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #32/2022 PDF here!

 

First of all, this will be the last news for a couple of weeks as we are on limited staff next week and are closed the week 22nd to 29th as we take our annual summer holidays. 

On to the news and starting in 1:18, we look to Tecnomodel which has (at last) released its resincasts of the McLaren M8As which were the cars to beat in the 1968 Can-Am season, with race winning cars for both team boss McLaren and series champion Hulme . Both are very well done and smartly presented as always.

Jordan 191 4th Canada 1991 #33 De Cesaris - Reference SPK8078

 

What’s the collective term for bulls? Is it a herd or should it be a rampage? We prefer the latter and it is appropriate to the number of Lamborghinis which have arrived in Spark’s first delivery of the week with colourful machines from the Spa and Nurburgring 24 Hour races of several years. There are also a few Astons and Mercedes from these events too and these are joined by more 2022 Formula 1 crash helmets, 2021 WRC machines and a handful of classic Formula 1s. The second shipment was a little smaller but includes plenty of interest with more classic Formula 1 and Le Mans subjects and Steve McQueen’s buggy from the Thomas Crown Affair.

 

Also in 1:43 this week we have a rare delivery of new items in the Neo range. These are interesting items with what would appear to be one of the more unsuitable cars selected for works rally competition in the shape of the Mercedes 280CE (although Ingvar Carlsson managed to bring the beast home in respectable positions when it finished) and for touring car fans, two examples of the fast but fragile Ford Sierra XR4Ti from the DTM back in the day.

Going in to last weekend’s Rally Finland, the smart money had to be on local boy Kalle Rovanpera, but it was Ott Tanak who put in what he considers to be his most satisfactory victory to beat the Finn by just under 7 seconds. Here's a great highlights video of the event. This is why I am not a gambling man! In MotoGP, Bagnaia’s win at Silverstone has brought him back into title contention as others had troubled days and in IndyCar, Scott Dixon scored an impressive win on the streets of Nashville having started 14th.
