Not that much in the way of new arrivals this week, but we did
receive a few significant 1:18 F1 models from Minichamps. 2010
Red Bull Vettel Brazil GP World Champion edition. This one is
2012 Mercedes Nico Rosberg China GP 1st F1 victory.
This remarkable book, unlike anything previously
published, has been meticulously researched and
written to capture the character and essence of
every one of the 859 World Championship races
held since the beginning of Formula 1 in 1950.
Loaded with technical facts and a great reference
tool for the book collection.
The Motorcourse Annual is the two wheelers bible
covering Moto GP, World Superbike, British Superbike,
AMA, and even the Isle of Man. I can't wait to get home
tonight and sit down with my copy. The photos are awesome
as they always are.
A good weekend to all.

Great day Monday at LRP, two big thumbs up for the SCDA
crew for putting on yet another great event. And a big thank you
to my instructor Lenny, I learned a ton from him.
Lenny also took me out for a session as his passenger in
his GT3 Cup Car. Now Lenny has been teaching at Lime
Rock for almost 25 years and driving the track for 30.
So how many laps does one log in 30 years? A bunch,
needless to say Lenny showed me some great lines around
this historic track. If you live in the Northeast and you want
to get on the track make sure you check out the SCDA website.
They run at LRP, NHMS, NJMP, and Watkins Glen.
They even rent SCCA spec Miatas if you need a car to drive.
Top notch organization and they attract a great clientele.
Next outing is May 2, stay tuned!

Big shout out to our friend Tjeu Linssen for more of his
incredible photography. This guy is the best in the business
for those that don't know his work. And I have to throw out
a thank you to Bill Murchison for originally hooking me up
with Tjeu's contact info.
