Sneak Peek of Flyslot Brabham BT44B F1

This week we heard David Brabham announce that the famous Brabham name is poised for a return as a constructor of racing cars under the banner "Project Brabham". This is certainly exciting news with the plan being to eventually re-enter Formula One as a constructor.

Flyslot has now given us a look at the prototype for their upcoming Brabham-Ford BT44B formula one racer of 1975.

This 1/32 slot car will have a conventional inline motor placement, steerable front wheels and magnet traction. The first liveries arriving at your local dealers will carry the iconic "Martini and Rossi" livery as shown on the photo of the actual racer driven by Argentine Carlos Reuteman.

As always it is difficult to predict with a reasonable degree of accuracy when new Flyslot models will be available, but I was told by a confidential source to look for the Flyslot Brabham BT44B no sooner than the end of the 1st Quarter 2015.
