Professor Motor News - June 2017

When Revell-Monogram stopped making 1/32 slot cars a few years ago, model racing enthusiasts lost some of the nicest looking slot cars on the market. Perhaps they didn't perform on the track as well as they looked, but they did have a very interesting range of cars with superb detailing.

Professor Motor has purchased the slot car tooling, and after a couple of years spent developing new chassis and running gear they are now getting some prototypes into production.

Here are some early test shots of the Greenwood Corvette, Plymouth GTX NASCAR, and Shelby GT-350.

It is my understanding that the first in the Professor Motor slotcar line to be produced will be the 1965 Ford Galaxie NASCAR which Professor Motor is asking for suggestions on what decoration to use.

Slot Car News will keep you informed when there is more news and a release schedule.

Goodspeed News May 2017


Over the last 12 years, many 1:32 racers have enjoyed competing regularly at Goodspeed in downtown Kalamazoo and contributed to the ongoing success of the four lane Scalextric track. Great friendships have been made along with lots of great memories. 

The building at 244 E. Michigan has now been sold and the deal will close in a week or so. Unfortunately, the new owner's plans will not allow Goodspeed to remain in the basement after the middle of June. So plans have been made to shut it down with two big events.

Thursday 5/11 This was going to be the Touring Car Enduro, but now it is going to be two of our most popular classes; C12 Trans Am and C22 Modern GT1. Both C12 and C22 has 200 gram magnet limits.

C12 Trans Am (1967-1971) 200 grams
Carrera; Cuda
Pioneer; Camaro, Mustang
Scalextric; Camaro, Cougar, Challenger, Mustang, Javelin

C22 Modern GT1 200 grams
Auto Art: Lamborghini Diablo GT3
Carrera: Corvette C6
Fly; Porsche 911 EVO, Porsche 911 GT198 (not the “Racing” version), Viper, Saleen SR7R, Ferrari F40, Dodge Viper
Ninco Mosler MT900R, EVO Genie,
Policar; Ferarri F40 LM
Scalextric; Ford GT, Jaguar XKRS, Aston Martin DBR9, Maserati MC12, Corvette C5R & C6R
SCX; Aston Martin DBR9

The track will open at 6 PM, tech at 7 PM and racing immediately after. 

Saturday May 20 Goodbye to Goodspeed Special Event. This will be a general hot lapping, B.S. session so bring any and all your cars to finish it off. We will shoot a group photo between 1 & 2 PM. Track will open at 9 AM until the last person goes home.

The dissembling of Goodspeed will start on Sunday May 21 at 1 PM. Any and all help will be appreciated.

Note: It is likely that this track will be relocated at some time- there is no further information on where and when available at this time.
