Miniature shooting stars

If you thought Velasor’s first edition of Austro-Daimler slot cars were something, the Spanish firm’s second release goes even further in its quest to become the ultimate in finely crafted small models.

This time focusing on the revolutionary Peugeot L45, Velasor has recreated the French brand’s entire trio of works entries from the 1914 ACF Grand Prix of Lyon, led by the dynamic Georges Boillot — plus the unmarked reserve car with Boillot’s cheerful younger brother André at its wheel.

The L45 was remarkable given its pioneering work with pre-war aerodynamics, and each model shows off the carís distinctive sweeping tail section in intricate detail. Against the stubby Mercedes 18/100 of the day, Peugeot hoped to find increased performance from the dart-like L45 and showed the car’s potential across a gruelling seven-hour race with the Mercedes team at Lyon.

Boillot’s car led for much of the grand prix, but was eventually pushed too far, losing the engine on the penultimate lap. Jules Goux brought the best of the L45s home in fourth while Mercedes filled the podium, but the Germans had been truly rattled by Peugeot’s new design.

Velasor’s 1:32-scale version is as intricate as it is beautiful, hand-made from over 270 pieces and incorporating a staggering number of movable and interactive parts, such as active front and rear shock absorbers, removable drum brakes, a rotating starter handle, removable bodywork and even two concealed spare wheels.

Available as individual cars or packaged together as the Legendary set, they are a showpiece quite unlike any other.

Tom Kristensen Le Mans book

Tom Kristensen, Mr Le Mans

Most know the story of Tom Kristensen’s incredible motor racing career — his against-the-odds rise from the son of a garage owner to the fringes
of Formula 1, before eventually finding his natural calling at Le Mans, going on to win the race a record nine times. But none tell the tale better than
the man himself, who sat down with writer Dan Philipsen to record his official memoire.

When released in his native Denmark, this won Sports Book of the Year, and it has now been brought to British fans by Evro Publishing. Wonderfully written, it’s a must-have for any sports car fan’s bookshelf.

1970 Le Mans poster

Studio Sportif posters

This isn’t your everyday wall-hanger bearing Stuttgart’s most famous Le Mans racer. Focusing on the 1970 Le Mans, Studio Sportif’s design brings an abstract touch to the table. Each design is hand-drawn and infused with vibrant colours, period-correct graphics and imagery from the event. There are other designs to choose from, including boxing (Foreman v Ali’s ‘Rumble in the Jungle’) and football (the 1966 World Cup). But we firmly believe you can’t have enough Porsches. These are as eye-catching as they are appealing and guaranteed to pep up a blank space.

Hesketh Racing cap

Hesketh Racing Cap

Name a cooler Formula 1 team than Hesketh… We’ll wait. A few came close, but the team of James Hunt, Harvey Postlethwaite, Lord Hesketh and that brilliant bear mascot combined to create a brand that endures even today. This officially licensed cotton cap is a modern homage to the team, and celebrates the squad’s highest point, Hunt’s victory in the 1975 Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort.

Phil Hill Signed Ferrari model tq

Phil Hill signed Ferrari 156 model

Phil Hill signed Ferrari modelConsidering its size, population and high regard for motor racing, it’s surprising that America has produced so few F1 world champions.

At 1/12 scale, it is crafted from copper, aluminium, stainless steel, cloth and leather and comes with a plaque that was hand-signed by Hill himself. Only 500 will be made, so get your order in quickly.
