I was always a fan of the early years of auto racing and land speed runs! So many cool cars and homemade designs built with a purpose!

This one has a unique back story...

digging up history!

Triple threat. 


  • nice — Numbskull
  • got several of these myself... a very nice casting with metal uppers and lowers! — FredD

W25 has been my favorite race car ever!

 

Top Speed: 380kph (236mph) 

I don't see many of the 50s through today's cars go that fast!


  • my dad had a slot car like this back in the '60's... love the style! — FredD
  • I had a rubber band engine wind up toy like it too! — LottaSpeedRacing
  • This open wheel style ruled Indy racing. Its body kept getting lower and more aerodynamic over the years. One exception was the 1955 Vuckovich Streamliner AKA hot wheels Turbolence. The car caused quite a sensation but never raced. — Vulfgang

Here is a great snapshot of some historic touring car race cars that have graced the Aussie landscape!

Racing at Bathurst. Vid only 5 minutes. And don't forget to check out Bathurst Diecast Racing Youtube Channel, where one can see Numbskull tackling this fast paced outdoor track!
