Another article about David Beattie and the Slot Mods company, who have been making some of the most impressive scale slot car tracks ever see. This article, on the Racer magazine website, relates the story of the construction of one of Slot Mod's newest tracks, Conrad Raceway.

"RECREATING A GOLDEN AGE: Conrad Speedway is an all-American moment in time from a company taking slot-car tracks to new heights.

 

When you've reached a point where you can splurge a little, or a lot, on your passion for cars and racing, and you happen to have a six-figure fun budget plus some floor space to fill, call Slot Mods founder David Beattie to create the slot-car track of your dreams.
