Slot.It announces 1/32 Ferrari 512M

 










Announcing the Slot.It Ferrari 512M - #16 24h Le Mans 1971

Drivers at LeMans 1971: Chris Craft, David Weir 

Entered by: David Piper

Stock Number: CA51a

Availability: April / May 2022

The Ferrari 512S had failed to beat the Porsche 917s in the 1970 World Sportscar Championship. 

Despite their higher weight and greater consumption, the car had shown winning potential, but the rushed-in construction had left reliability issues unresolved.

A bit of unusually bad luck struck at Le Mans, where an accident eliminated four of the five 512S in one stroke. For the ending part of the season Ferrari decided to create a lighter and aerodynamically advanced version: thus the 512M (Modified). The new 'M' model proved immediately faster than the 'S' version but took its first laps only three weeks before the last Championship race at Ă–sterreichring (now Red Bull Ring), where Jacky Ickx led the race until he had to retire due to an alternator failure.

The first victory of the new Ferrari took place in South Africa on 7 November 1970, in a race outside the World Championship, in the hands of Ickx / Giunti who reached the finish line three laps ahead in the Porsche 917K driven by Siffert / Ahrens. 

In 1971, however, despite the excellent end of the 1970 season for the 512M, Ferrari decided to concentrate the company's efforts on a car in line with the 1972 regulations, leaving the 512M to private teams: the 512M, therefore, despite its outstanding performance, could never prove its true value. 

It remains, however, one of the most beautiful and iconic Sports Prototypes in the history of motorsport. 

Slot.It's CA51a model represents the car of Team Piper which, was driven by Chris Craft and David Weir at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1971. Starting 13th from the grid, the car dropped to 44th place in the 2nd hour of the race but climbed back to an excellent 4th place overall.

Top Secret Tennessee Showdown 2021

Results from the TOP SECRET TENNESSEE SHOWDOWN 2021.

The day began with BEST APPEARING judging for DTM.  










Nick Farris' Mid-America Audi was voted the winner by his fellow racers.  

James Merriman, in his first visit to The Raceway - Cleveland TN, TQ'd the DTM class and we went racing. 










James followed up his TQ with fast lap (4.495) and best segment (24) on his way to the DTM win.  His 4.495 fast lap was actually .12 seconds faster than his TQ lap!  Nick Farris was our runner-up with Scott Thomason completing the podium.



























Nick Farris again was voted Concours winner for GTP.










James then turned the fastest lap ever on the Road Course (4.275) to claim GTP TQ.  










James and Nick had another great race going for the win, when James' motor came loose about mid-race and he lost about 10 laps during the repair.  

He was able to make up most of them as he then recorded best segment (27) and fast lap (4.284), but fell a bit short as Nick got the win.  Scott Thomason earned another podium.





















Scott Thomason and Tyler Flowers put on a great show in GROUP-I (Wing cars with TOP SECRET INTIMIDATOR motors) with Scott holding off Tyler for a 1-1/2 lap win. M.G. Brown rounded out the podium. Daniel Thomason claimed both fast lap (4.602) and best segment (25).  

























Many thanks to David Etheridge at TOP SECRET PRODUCTS for the event's conception and for providing the consistently strong INTIMIDATOR motors, the race awards, and lots of great race prizes.
