:iagree Allan is becoming quite famous. But, yes, there's always but, why is this famous 1:18 scale collector showing off a 1:24 scale diecast in the most prominent place in the photo? I know why, it's because Simone is just impossible to resist.   :lol  :lol  :lol

Yes, I was a racing driver 10 years ago.

Took part in South East Asia Touring Car events. also took part some rallye events in Australia.
I'd raced in the USA too. At Laguna Seca Raceway & Second Creek Raceway (Denver)

The best of all is to meet Mr.Andy Rouse (5 time BTCC Champion) in UK.
We did tried out the BTCC Toyota Carina at Donington Park Racetrack.

Yes, I still have some pics of these racers.
that is COOL!!! really COOL!!! I always respected and respect people who took or take a part in racing events!!!  :bowdown  :bowdown  :bowdown

The race - it is something like... can not find a word. It is another life... I guess

to drive a real race car - it is my dream!! really!!

Allan, I will appreciate you very much you share some your racing pix with us

Reason why 1:43 scale cars aren't that popular because most people including me(sorry it I offend) consider them toys and not Collectable model cars. .

Should you collect 1:43?

Quote

In my opinion, no if you can afford 1:18 models. First of all, most people will think of them as toys, while 1:18 models can look as something classy if you have a few.
