It’s a hattrick of interviews for you as our exceptionally busy, but apparently very active, Head Researcher managed to scoop another interview for Test Track. Following chats with both Rollcentre Racing and West Surrey Racing, Simon managed to catch up with Nick Tandy, factory driver for Porsche Motorsport, and get the scoop on recent events, Le Mans and, of course, Scalextric. Take it away Simon…
One of our flagship GT releases for 2018 is the glorious 911RSR that Nick Tandy, Patrick Pilet and Kevin Estre drove in the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans (C3944). While the race didn’t go to plan for the group this year, 2015 actually saw Nick win overall and when the opportunity came for us here at Scalextric to meet him for a chat, we couldn’t resist! Grabbing him almost straight off the plane after a win at the 2018 Sebring 12 hours we got right to it. Read more at the scalextric website here.
You can order your model at your local Scalextric dealer or visit Scalextric.
