A brief History of Aurora Slot Cars

by Hornblower

Aurora is well known for their HO (1/87-scale) line of slot racing products.  John Cuomo, Joe Giammarino and Abe Shikes founded Aurora at the beginning of the 50s and in the 60s Aurora introduced the first electric powered slot cars.

Vibrator of Aurora

The Vibrator is the first type of car. Derek Brand designed the motor system. Vibrator motor: when the current is turned on the coil becomes magnetized and the actuator reed is drawn down, forcing the push rod against contact arm thus breaking electrical contact. This causes the coil become de-magnetized. The springs return action of the actuator reed allows contacts to "make" again. Each time the contacts "make" and "break" the actuator reed vibrates up and down and in so doing turns the drive gear. The system showed to be not very reliable and a new system was required.

The Slot.it white kits have always had a certain appeal to me, and not just because I save some money! You do get some satisfaction out of creating a car in your preferred colour scheme, and hopefully some fun out of putting together the kit as well. Slot.it have released both the Ford GT40 and the Ford MkII (note: it was never called the GT40 MkII at the time, as Ford USA were distancing themselves from the hitherto unsuccessful British-built GT40, and history has been rewritten somewhat to make the GT40 look better than it was) and lacking a GT40 in my collection I went for that one.

I based my model on the Scuderia Filipinetti GT40 which ended its 1966 race in a crash at the Esses. Fuel from a loose filler cap spilled onto the rear tyres (the car had just made a pit stop), which rather surprised Dieter Spoerry, so he hit the bank and wrecked the rear suspension. Slot.it are good enough to supply two ‘bonnets’ with different radiator outlet configurations: the deep single outlet as used by the later Wyer GT40s and one with a twin outlet pattern. Unfortunately, neither of these was the one I really wanted (the earlier, smaller twin outlet design) so my car instantly became more of a ‘lookalike’ than an accurate model. Oh well…

Mazda Mania 787B - by Marc Abbott

by SlotCarMag

The Mazda 787B from MrSlotCar, modelled on the No.55 Renown Le Mans 1991 winning car, boasts to be an all-encompassing serious slot racers model. On first inspection it would appear that the hype is well justified. Here we strip it to the bones and find out just how much punch this new company will have against the already well-established brands. In future issues, SlotCarMAG want to put this car up against the best-of-the-rest by pitching it, running as a standard car, against all-comers, in a no-holds-barred “Formula Libre” series...

In 1966 Scalextric introduced to its range one of the most famous sports cars ever to grace the world's racing circuits. Ford took the battle to Ferrari at Le Mans in France whilst in the UK Tri-Ang Scalextric, though a year or so behind the real world of racing, took some of its production to Hong Kong in an effort to satisfy the demand of slot racing fans for more cars and to deny those sales to its competitors in the USA and Europe.

The first two Ford GT40 cars released by Scalextric were based upon the 1964 GT40 cars (chassis GT101-107) entered by FAV. Scalextric used white plastic on one model and light blue plastic on the other. Decals, primarily a black bonnet covering, were applied at the factory with racing roundels numbers 12 & 7. To which race car and race these were supposed to mirror, if any, it is hard to say but perhaps the No.12 car was Attwood/Schlesser's GT104 car at Le Man 1964. The No.7 race reference is the mystery car in this instance, as far as my records tell me, but it should always be remembered that Tri-Ang was a toy company, Scalextric was a toy and not an exact model. Scalextric was never beholden to the real world of motor racing and simply had to release cars that kids and Dads would find attractive. Indeed, Scalextric also issued a dark blue GT40 of the same type to the Australian/New Zealand market in 1966 presumably at the specific request of the Australasian distributor's request in mind of New Zealander Chris Amon's efforts in GT107 at Le Mans 1965. The Scalextric reference for this car is C77 for both colour versions.

We are expecting a huge delivery from Hornby and Scalextric in the next 7 days.

Products have been slow coming since the New Year and the Chinese New Year all but stops production for 6-8 weeks. But the boats are arriving thick and fast now and there are many releases for Scalextric, we hope that there will be 7 new cars and there is about 203-30 products expected from the Hornby range. The most wanted Hornby item will be the Brighton Belle.
