Caution: the time table of first pilot was rigged, in fact there are no significant differences between the times during more than 50 laps for each model, with never a mistake (tires not trued and no magnet on Ninco track).
The second tester is Mr. Biacchi, named "the Professor" because he teaches at a high school and he is one of the most ancient Italian pilots, his lap times really show some variation... “the other one” instead is known for his inventions.
Sorry, no one remember the differences between the 670B of 1973 (SRC model) and the 670C of 1974 (Slot.it)?
Thank you for translating. My Italian language skills have eroded greatly.
From the photos it would appear that the Matra is to the McLaren as the Lola B09/60 is to the McLaren F1 GTR. That is the wheelbase is longer and the guide flag post is further forward. Both of these attributes should make for a car that can easily be driven on the edge for a longer time.
Oh well, there is an open slot in my Slot.It Classic case.
The Policar Ferrari 312PB sounds interesting as well.
The Matra does look a little 'large' in comparison --but I think that's scale. (the Chappy, is of course, more like 1/30..) The first two years of the 312PB's --they looked tiny next to anything except Alfas - and if you go to the 1973 version, the Ferrari was longer and wider. The LeMans long-tail would look right at home next to the Matra -- ahhhh hemmmm....
