Hey vintage and history fans,

 

During the past weeks Markus (Klenkes) and I have digitized and uploaded many pictures and even more newspaper articles from the past decades. All collected by the members of Germanys oldest slot car racing club "1. Stolberger Automodell Club 1963." But it is still only about 80% of our archives. :heat:

 

Of course the articles are all in German language, but maybe some of you are interested anyway. And the pictures are in German and English :laugh2: .

 

You can click on all pictures and articles, however the articles with small headlines have multiple pages (with a beautiful scroll animation), so maybe you want to cklick on them.

 

So enjoy this little journey to a small part of Germany's slot car history. :popcorm1:

A quick glance found some friends from '90s and on (King track racers) - Assi, Tommy, Mario at least.

Yes, I raced with them in the 90ths a few times, too.
Unfortunately, they gave up their club in Pforzheim a few years ago. They sold their track to the club in Banewitz, but without the "Hot Shot" looping track.
