All of this week's news of arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #20/2022 PDF here!

 

If you’re a Ferrari fan it’s been a good (expensive!) week where new arrivals are concerned. Beginning with the 1:43s and Top Marques from whom we’ve received several new very well finished resincast releases with multiple colour options of the very pretty 288GTO and 333SPs offering colour choices for plain press cars and also race versions with the Olive Garden entry from Sebring in 1999 and the MOMO Daytona winner from the previous season.

Ferrari 268SP Le Mans 1962 #28 Rodriguez/Rodriguez 1:18 - Reference TEC18129E

 

There are more 1:43s from GP Replicas with Ferrari 126C4s arriving alongside Lotus 88s and in larger scales they have released Lotus 49Cs, McLaren MP4/2Bs and Williams FW15Cs in 1:18 and very imposing Ferrari 312T2s in 1:12! There are more large scale Ferrari from Tecnomodel too, with multiple versions of the 246SP and 268SP sports racers from 1962 with cars from the Targa Florio, Nurburgring and Le Mans.

 

Ixo continue to be very busy and from this prolific diecast maker we have new releases in both 1:43 and 1:18. In the smaller size we see Ford, Lancia and Opel road cars alongside classic Toyota and modern Hyundai rally machines and there’s more for rally fans with a brace of Escort Cosworths from the 1995 Ypres Rally, both wearing very colourful local sponsorship in 18th scale.

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

There was lots of racing going on last weekend with Colton Herta winning the Indianapolis Grand Prix in changeable conditions, Juan-Pablo Montoya heading straight from that race to Mid-Ohio to take a class win in IMSA (the Taylor Team, Acura taking overall honours) , Enea Bastinini victorious in the Le Mans MotoGP on a satellite Ducati and the very pretty SunEnergy Mercedes triumphing in the Bathurst 12 Hours are just a few of the highlights. This weekend there is plenty of action on the Iberian peninsula with the Spanish Grand Prix seeing several teams promising upgrades which may or may not change the balance of power seen so far this year. The WRC is across the border in Portugal and elsewhere there are DTM, NASCAR and Supercar races for fans of tintops. Slightly (!) slower but no less frenetic, this weekend also sees the Silverstone 24 Hours with our own racer Andre out in a Citroen C1 once again, this time with a different team, the #308 machine of Emax Motorsport. You can keep a check how he and his teammates are getting with live timing and an online YouTube stream of the race which starts 17:55 BST on Saturday.
