This is a very rare slot car!
My slot cars are my babies and I don't like parting with them and I build for my own use but this Lotus 18 was buiilt for a friend, Paul Elliott, for an Earlybirds meeting about 4 or 5 years ago.
It measures absolutely to scale, runs on narrow tyres and has a Scalextric RTR "cooking" motor but he was incredibly quick with the car round the Wolverhampton track and it was great fun watching "my" car perform so well. It goes without saying that it has a Dave Jones bodyshell.
I have had the car back a couple of times for running repairs as this car has taken part in three Earlybirds as well as various club races at Southend and it is still one of Paul's favourite slot cars.
Number 8 by the way is his favourite number and it doesn't depict a particular Moss car.
