Latest news from spark is hat they are going into the 1:64 market with several race cars showing in their latest update. The Y prefix denotes the 1:64 cars. In the 1:43 nice to see the 98LM winner available as that will fill a definite hole in the winners collection.

As far as I know Lee, the '98 winner has already been released, so this would be a re-release (as Spark have done with several of their other Le Mans winners).

The 9 guys who've paid Trax GBP 199 each for one are going to be pretty p@#$ed :

Mind you, when there is already a great version from HPI, the decent Minichamps version is cheap and plentiful and you can get the Onyx version for under GBP 10, I'm surprised people are paying this sort of money for the Spark and there is enough demand to warrant a re-run.

The Lola GT has been mentioned in Spark's catalogues for a few years now. Nice to see it finally break cover :

Hi Paul,
Yes, we received your pre-order on 5 March for S4948 & S5081. Sharon e-mailed back to confirm your order the same day, and provided you with an updated pre-order list. You e-mailed us again on 10 March asking if we received your original pre-order. I then e-mailed back the same day - forwarding Sharon's e-mail - confirming that we have the two models on order for you.

Didn't you receive either of our messages?

Cheers, John

Hi everyone,

It was already long time coming, but I just noted that Spark announced 919's with the high downforce kit. Typically I would buy the Fuji one as I think it is a nice way to complete the Porsche Team. However, during the last race outing, Porsche used a tribute livery, which I was expecting to feature on the WEC champion car. From the pictures I have seen thus far, it looks like the standard livery.

Does anyone here have any news in this regard? Will Spark release the 919 tribute later? (Or maybe release the record car?? :roll: )

Thanks!
