JULY 10, 2014

 
 
This afternoon, we started uploading to our Online Shopping Website a list of 39 cars from the 2014 24 Hours of LeMans that Spark Model intends to produce in 1/43 scale between now and next June, including the race winning #2 Audi R18 e-tron quattro driven by Fassler, Lotterer and Treluyer for the trio's third LeMans victory in 4 years.

 



Spark's LeMans list includes all but the 14 Ferraris that started this year's race and the ill-fated Nissan ZEOD RC. We expect Fujimi to announce their Ferrari lineup soon. If we hear of a Nissan, we will offer it in a future Email Update.
 
  
 
So far, we've uploaded all the LMP1 entries along with the LMP2 and GTLME-AM class winners, the Corvette C7s and other popular entries. We should have everything online by the weekend.  
 
You can also download the complete list as a pdf file HERE. Just fill out your selections, scan the list and email it to me at zim@motorsportcollector.com.
 
 
 
The US Distributor has asked the we have all advance orders in by this Monday, July 14 so your input this weekend is very important. We will be ordering a few extra pieces of what we think will be the most popular entries this year but with such a short window, as usual, and the return of Porsche to the prototype ranks it's always good to have your name near the top of the list.
 
 
 
You'll find the 2014 LeMans model section HERE.
 
 
 
The next shipment from Spark is due to arrive after we return from Road America next weekend. It contains the sold-out 1965 Indy winning Jim Clark Lotus 38 along with the Jochen Rindt Lotus 69 (seen below) and a dozen other great models. Click HERE.
 
This week, after only 18 months, we were able to restock two of our best selling DVDs: 'Grand Prix: The Killer Years' and 'Deadliest Crash' - the story of the 1955 LeMans disaster. After filling back orders, we have a few extra copies of each for $39.95 plus shipping.
 


 If you have copies on back order and we have not contacted you, please drop me a note.

TMC will be closed Saturday, July 19 as we will be in Wisconsin for our usual trackside display at The HAWK with Brian Redman Vintage Weekend at Road America July 17-20. RA management is hinting that Vendor Row will be moved to a different location for the event. Hopefully, it won't be across the highway. Just look for the TMC flags and banners somewhere in the Paddock. Check out the video of last year's event above.
 
Our latest TMC Coffee Mug arrived this week. It features the great Gilles Villeneuve and his Ferrari attacking the Grand Prix circuit at Watkins Glen in a torrential downpour during qualifying for the 1979 US Grand Prix. One of my favorite photos. Just $10 plus shipping. 
 
Due to popular demand, we've restocked our previous release, featuring the Lowenbrau Porsche 962 at Road America and, we'll have another new design for you in August.

  

Please check out the Spark LeMans listings and get your orders to us by Monday afternoon.

  

Have a great weekend!
