A Signed Spirit Dallara Model
Plus A Mosler
Thanks to Fair
International (the French importers of the Spirit
and NSR slot-car models), Pascal Felix
and the latter’s retail outlet, V.P.C (Voitures Pour
Circuit), we have five signed models of last year’s
#18 Rollcentre Dallara Judd to offer as competition prizes, plus
one Rollcentre Mosler (the 2003 Spa 1000 Kms car). The Mosler won
its class in this race - which featured an outstanding last hour,
Barbosa versus Erdos, the latter in the Spirit-backed Balfe MT900R.
Dallaras are manufactured by Spirit, a Spanish
company, and are top quality slot cars, as you can see in the image
on the right, while the Mosler is also a slot car, again a very
high quality example, manufactured by NSR, in Italy.
doesn’t know it yet, but he’s going to be signing all
six models, and the overall winner of the competition will
win the Mosler and a Dallara, while the next four
best entries will receive a Dallara.
is a simple one: predict, to the nearest

Radical, on Wednesday and Thursday at Le Mans this week.

The best guide we can offer is Joao Barbosa’s
lap time of 3:43.373 at the test day on June 4, although Martin
Short has indicated that if Barbosa really goes for a fast one in
qualifying, he might dip below 3:40. The team owner isn’t
particularly interested in a fast qualifying time though –
so your problem is going to be working out whether the Portuguese
does go for a (pole?) time or not.
competition will close at 19.00 CET on Wednesday June 14, just as
Felix and his V.P.C. shop will have a
full range of models on sale at the circuit here, from Wednesday.
The shop will be located behind the start-line Tribunes,
numbers 20 and 21, known as Leonard and
Tavano. Pop along and see Pascal if you’re
considering buying any models – and do tell him if you’ve
entered the competition!
