Hello Folk's

I have been collecting 1:43 racing cars for twenty-eight years. Main interest is Le mans prototypes and GT sportscars. Living near Road Atlanta and being blessed seeing tracks from Sebring,Daytona,Laguna Seca, Watkins Glen and Indianapolis. You can say I am a major gearhead.

Its nice to see others with the same passion.

Great to see another racing enthusiast join the forum. I feared we were being outnumbered by the road car collectors for a while :D .

I've never been to the tracks in the north of the US, but I've been to Daytona and Sebring. Loved the friendly nature of the fans there, but the racing was pretty good as well.

Welcome to the forum

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Another race car fan enters :D Welcome to the forum. It great that you live near some tracks and are able to go see them race and with the smell of burning rubber and petrol fumes it's doesn't get much better than that.
I'd love to go to the Laguna Seca track as it's brilliant and I love racing on it on Gran Turismo. It's one of those tracks that when you go round and set a fast lap time it's so rewarding, but when you get it wrong, it goes wrong big style :lol:

Welcome aboard. As others have already mentioned plenty of Sports car/GT/protoype racing enthusiasts here. Hell we even have what must be half the North American fans of that type of racing here :P

Plenty of other stuff here here keep you occupied and amused. Please note that we accept no liability for expansion in collecting themes. :lol:
