There are two newly released 1:43 hand built models of the 2022 Ferrari 296 GT3 press version & Ferrari Daytona SP3 Icona, this one of the recently added limited edition colours. Marsh Models popped in a small but welcome delivery of its AC Cobra 427 "Flip-top" Nassau 1964 #98 Miles resin/metal kit (hand builts later) along with a fine limited edition of 25 pieces hand built Eagle AAR102 Weslake 1st Race Of Champions 1967 #5 Gurney.

Our friends in Portugal have been busy, both brands producing several new subjects each. In the Trofeu range there are four new 1:43 diecast (more "hybrid" models with the use of plastic bodies but you know what we mean) releases are one touring car Ford Escort RS1600 Spa 24hrs 1970 #62 Frami Racing Holland & three rally with BMW 2002 Ti 7th Portugal 1974 #14 Fischer/Gottlieb, Audi Quattro 16th RAC 1984 #29 Lord/Varley & Alpine A110 Tour De Corse 1978 #18 Venturini/Simonini.

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

The Emilia Romagna Grand Prix looked like it was going to be hard work to keep interested in initially but man of the moment Lando Norris got us all excited with his can he, can't he chase down eventual winner Max Verstappen. That revised McLaren is being developed into something of a weapon. The Perth rounds of the Supercars championship turned into an all Ford affair with a win each for Chas Mostert and Cam Waters while qualifying for this weekend's Indy 500 was a triumph for antipodean ex-Supercars champion Scott McLaughlin at a four lap average of a remarkable 234mph.

Which leads us nicely into looking forward to Sunday's 500 race which will follow on from watching the Monaco Grand Prix where Lewis Hamilton was top of the FP1 timesheets. FP2 is underway as this is being written (?) and Charles Leclerc leads the way. The Formula 2 & 3 fields will also add to weekend entertainment. It is also the Shanghai Formula E Prix, the second round of the DTM and NASCAR from Charlotte.
