I'm happy to report that a couple of months ago we had a Cuca Day in Italy that attracted 180 Cucarachas in all shapes and sizes. Thirty cars took part in a race on the Thomieu track in Roncole Verdi and your ex-car finished second with me driving. The car behaved impeccably and was very much admired. The car that came first was much more heavily modified and was driven by Givanni Montiglio, who is a former World and Italian champion, so I have no reason to complain.


Last Sunday we had our annual Thingies meeting in Roncole and I finished fifth. First was Montiglio with a Mini Dream Mini B and second and fourth two Cucarachas with Havlicek motors driven from two friends from my club. I have to say that their cars were heavily influenced by yours. Again I have no regrets as they beat me regularly on our club track.


So thank you for a wonderful car and we'll be in touch.

Luciano, thanks for this post. I very much appreciate it and I know Pablo will as well.


Would love to have more threads and info concerning slot car activities in Italy.


In fact, I would dearly love to see a report at Slotblog about the Thingies vintage meeting in Roncole Verdi.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap
