I'm an avid reader and collector of vintage “Car Model Magazine”, “Model Car Science” and other magazines and slot car books of the 1960's and 1970's, as well as the current "Model Car Racing" Publications. I am a frequent contributor on several industry websites.
In 2003 through 2005 I produced and promoted a series of four "Dino Derby" slot car events at Local commercial raceways for vintage and scratch built slot cars. The idea was to provide a bracketed race format that would allow a wide variety of older and hand built cars to be raced in a format that was exciting and yet easy on the precious old stuff. I also made an effort to promote the event widely, mostly outside of the industry in hopes of finding racers who had not been involved for years and encouraging their return. The events drew a fine field of entrants and competitors from across the US and Germany.
