Nice write-up in The Evening Sun about Slots of Fun Speedway in Hanover, PA.

Don’t fall off.

Newcomers to slot car racing would do well to remember that piece of advice offered by Colton Harmon, owner of Slots of Fun Speedway, which is poised to bring the nostalgic hobby back to Hanover.

“There might be people that are a lot faster than you, and if they fall off, you can easily pass them,” Harmon said. “if you are fast and you fall off a lot, you’re not going to win. If you are just kind of slow and steady, you can still do pretty good.”

Beattie makes slot-car tracks—but not the kind you found under the tree when you were a kid. Want Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for your basement? How about Le Mans or a slice of Monaco or the track of your dreams in your 
garage? Or, do you have a company looking for a traffic-stopping element for the office or to show off at a trade show?

Nice write-up in the L.A. Times about slot car racing in SoCal, with Ed Shorer and the FarrOut Slot Car Club.

When he was 14, Ed Shorer loved nothing as much as slot car racing.

All his free time and spare change were spent at the track, where he and his buddies, gripping hand-held electric controllers, raced their tiny cars whipping around curves and corners.

Who’s the craziest ultra-rich, would-be supervillain in the whole wide world? It’s Elon. Elon Musk.

During a Friday morning TED talk, the professional technology brainstormer offered an animated glimpse at what his new tunneling project, The Boring Company, could one day create. It looks like a post-apocalyptic slot car race that takes place underneath the city of Los Angeles, shielding Tesla owners from the radiation bombarding surface dwellers in the wake our inevitable judgement day. It looks pretty cool, though!
