With the participation at this year’s SlotCar Festival in Gaydon, Birmingham, Harrel-RS presented itself to the public for the first time.
For the ninth time the UKSF was held this year. Originally a meeting of English SlotCar enthusiasts, the UKSF has long since become a – if not the – meeting of the European scene. International exhibitors present their products at the UKSF. This makes it the perfect setting for the first Harrel appearance.

 

Point of Interest.

The British Motor Museum in Gaydon/Warwickshire offers the world’s largest collection of British automobile history. Even for people in their veins not gasoline pulsates absolutely worth seeing. The exhibition is exciting and vividly structured and presents an important chapter in British economic history. The UKSF has been held in the museum for years.

The location couldn’t be more fitting. The British Motor Museum has hosted the UKSF for years and offers plenty of space with its inviting conference area. The Harrel-RS stand, a production of our own, quickly became a crowd-puller. The response: unanimous. Marc Abbot and Ric Woods from the English Slot Car Magazine put it in a nutshell on behalf of the visitors:
„The connection that we’ve been dreaming about, it’s easy to use, easy to set up, the grip is phenomenal, very smooth, very flat, you have a good racing on it, I tried a non magnetic car on it and there is good grip. It’s brilliant, absolutely brilliant.“

UKSF is all about SlotCars.

However, the festival is not a toy fair. Ambitious drivers show their skills on the numerous race tracks that are set up in the halls of the British Motor Museum Conference Center. “Let’s go racing” is the festival championship that takes place over several tracks.

An eye-catcher and absolute crowd-puller. The “Gaydon Ring”, specially designed for the festival, leads over barrels and yet is monster stable. “Sturdy” – besides “Grip” – was the most heard word at the booth.

During the two days in Gaydon we had countless conversations with slotters of all weight classes. From the junior driver to the absolute racing professional, everyone is enthusiastic about the Harrel-RS concept of the modular wooden track with its superior stability and excellent grip. The construction of the “Gaydon Ring” on barrels quickly made it clear that a solid, free-floating track is possible with Harrel-RS, which also works very well without solid ground. The option of colour coding all eight possible tracks captivated club riders and the patented, almost lossless power supply made tears of joy flow.

In short: We got more than a good feeling to do everything right with the Harrel-RS and actually close a gap in SlotCar racing.

 

Share the enthusiasm.

The guests at our stand really enjoyed the good driving characteristics of the Harrel-RS track and didn’t stay behind the mountain. The positive feedback of the English slotters was recorded in words and pictures.

For the next year we plan to be there again and then we will participate with a track in the UKSF SlotCar competition “Let’s go racing”. For 2019 we would like to thank Sean Fothersgill and his team from Pendle Slot Racing for this successful weekend.
