Good day to all from a sunny and hot Bloemfontein, South Africa.

Santa Clause has delivered and awesome present. The majority of the Slot Car Crazy group is on holiday and Racing would only start early in 2018.

These cars look awesome and will be inspected individually, all defects will be communicated with the owners.

Once again congrats to all on some fantastic builds.

So the pits start to get busy as Xmas approaches.

Merry Xmas to all and we wish you a joyous festive season.

Thanks Gavin, great to see that the cars made the 5,000 mile trek in good shape. Thanks for the pics and we're all looking forward to the racing come early 2018; always fun to see the cars run at The New 1953 and the Rhino River Raceway, as well as some of the other tracks that you have in South Africa.

And I really like your little Christmas tree in the first pic!

Someone down there needs to build a 1/32 scale Kyalami track...................hint, hint...........................! ;) :lol:

Merry Christmas!

Now I have two cars in two different proxies on the far side of the world.

Enjoy driving them as much as I enjoyed building them.
