Slot Mods Raceways is famous for completely bespoke racetracks for 1:32 scale slot cars. Impressive in size and abounding in fine detail, every square inch is reflective of the company’s artisan touch. This piece, the Dream Weaver, is not a recreation of any specific track, but rather a personal greatest hits compilation: elements of Sebring, Virginia International Raceway, Daytona, Laguna Seca, and the COTA esses can be found.

In fact the whole prinicipality has been recreated with Carrera slot car tracks and a lot of cardboard: in fact everything you need to stage your home grand prix in your own home.

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!

Family Fun Zone 2

Slot Car Racing in the Family Fun Zone at the Long Beach Grand Prix.
