Racing the New BRM & Scaleauto Cars at The Slot Connection in Nurnberg Germany.

Published: February 8, 2014

The Annual Scaleracing/Slot Connection Event, Nurnberg Germany.

Each year while Toy Fair is going on at the end of January Scaleracing & Slot Connection host races for Racers to experience the latest cars. BRM and Scaleauto supported the Event this year. Races were held for the new 1:32 scale Scaleauto Pantera and the 1:24th scale BRM Group C Cars featuring the latest Angle Winder chassis.

Everyone had a lot of fun running these prototypes of the new BRM Cars, a big thank you to Pascal and Davide from BRM for their support of this race.

Here are the results and a few more images from the race.

 The Scaleauto Panteras ran very strong, they were stock except for Scaleauto sponge rear tires SC-2018.  On this track they would benefit from a little weight added up front, plus low profile front tires.

Thank you to The Slot Connection for hosting at their great Club in Nurnberg, if you ever visit the area you should go check them out.
