Seat Leon Slot Car!
January 2, 2008.
It just came in the mail:
It's a 1/32 scale racing Seat Leon.
Compared with a 1/43 scale Abrex Skoda Octavia Combi.
The car is rear wheel drive, (OK, not so... scale, but good for driving sideways!). It will fit in a variety of slot racetracks, inluding my own 1/32 scale Polistil which I have for exactly 30 years! (Bought in Dec. 1977!). Racing will commence soon. Actually all the little boys in this house are VERY anxious to... race it!
The car is amazingly detailed: Every sticker is just correctly applied. It even has side mirrors and a rear wing.
The interior is full of rollcage and sports a driver figure.
I found it at ebay.com and cost around 40 euros (shipping included).
A small video of our current slot track, as it was last year. We still have to race the new LEON WTCC on it, but we will do very shortly!
You can see the video here too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SG_b_zg-3y4. It will open a new window.
