F1 DVD BLOWOUT

 

LeMANS DVD BLOWOUT

1/4/14 UPDATE: We're kicking off 2014 with a closeout sale of Official Formula One and LeMans Review DVDs. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, the US licensee of these programs decided to close their motorsports division. 

As a result, we are able to offer their remaining inventory at a dramatically reduced price. 

This will be 'last call' for these titles. Once they are gone, that will be it. In some cases, there are less than 10 units available, It's a good opportunity to add some modern racing history to your video library or pick up a spare copy, just in case.

Click on the links above or go to our Online Shopping website to browse or order.



11/12/13 UPDATE: We're pleased to announced that we have snagged the final few Schoco 1/18 scale Cooper T51s as driven by Sir Jack Brabham to his first Formula One World Championship and the first Championship for a rear engined Grand Prix car.

Our next Email Update will contain information on more than 50 'one off' items that have arrived here at TMC in the past couple of weeks. Don't miss it!


11/12/13 UPDATE: Our 'Early November Update' announced the release by Schuco of a 1/18 scale Cooper T51 as driven to the 1959 World Championship by Sir Jack Brabham. Initial response overwhelmed our available stock and many orders were accepted on a 'Wait List' basis. Luckily, we've been able to locate and acquire enough inventory in the past few days to fill our existing orders. We also have a few additional pieces available, first come first served, at the original issue price of $269.99. Reserve one HERE.

10/31/13 UPDATE: Coming in November: 1967: Chris Amon, Scuderia Ferrari and a Year of Living Dangerously by John Julian.

The Author takes a fresh look at one of racing's most memorable years through the eyes of Chris Amon, the young New Zealander who had just joined the Ferrari team. Amon has long been a favorite of true racing enthusiasts. While he's often noted for his hard luck-in a thirteen-year F1 career he never won a championship Grand Prix-among knowledgeable fans and fellow drivers he is still universally respected for his speed, skill,and sportsmanship on the track.

Hardcover, 12" x 912", 120 pages, 59 black-and-white and 19 color photographs

November 2013 Release - $49.95. Reserve your copy HERE!

 

 


10/26/13 UPDATE: Far and away the most popular 1/43 scale model of 2013 has been Spark's #0 Nissan Deltawing in 2012 LeMans livery. Demand overwhelmed production when the model was released last summer (Trust me, there was a lot of behind the scenes deal making going on to get our advance orders filled in a timely fashion!).  

Although several additional versions of this radical new design have been announced (CLICK HERE), demand for the LeMans version has been strong enough that Spark has announced one final production run. A deadline of Wednesday, October 30 has been set for dealers to submit their additional requirements.

If you missed out on the Deltawing last summer, please place your order by Wednesday.

 

 


10/12/13 UPDATE: Just released. Our first shipment is on the way:

Racing Demons - Porsche and the Targa Florio

by Michael Keyser, Mark Koense & Enzo Manzo

Forever hailed as the world's last true road race, the legendary Targa Florio in Sicily was first held in 1906 on a 148 km (92 mile) circuit that twisted and turned though the Madonie mountains east of Palermo, passing through a number of small, picturesque villages before running along the Mediterranean coast and back to the start/finish line. Each year, for one spectacular spring day, this tortuous course, laid out on the island at the toe of the boot of Italy, was the focus of the entire racing world.

There was simply nothing quite like racing exotic sports cars around narrow island roads lined with over half a million race crazy Italians who, together with Sicily's spectacular backdrop and the circuit's challenging characteristics, created the magical ambiance that made the Targa one of the most famous races in the sport's history. And no other car won this grueling event more times than Porsche.


Racing Demons ­ Porsche and the Targa Florio for the first time brings together the many Porsches that raced in the Targa Florio, from the lone privately entered 356 Cabriolet that started the race in 1953, to the works Martini 911 RSR, which won the last ever Targa twenty years later, marking Porsche's eleventh victory in Sicily.


At the wheel of the many legendary Porsches that were raced in the Targa during the span of two decades, were some of the top drivers of the 50s, '60s and '70s, such as Umberto Maglioli, Edgar Barth, Stirling Moss, Graham Hill, Jo Bonnier, Gerhard Mitter, Rolf Stommelen, Vic Elford, Brian Redman, Jo Siffert, Herbert Müller, and Gijs van Lennep.


This unique book contains more than 500 black and white and color photographs, many never published before, including a number of images unearthed from the Porsche factory's archive in Stuttgart, and a broad selection taken by photographers living in Sicily during the years the race was held. Each tells its own fascinating story.


Racing Demons ­ Porsche and the Targa Florio is the definitive story of one of the world's greatest marques taking on one of the most challenging circuits of the twentieth century, and crossing its finish line first more times than any other manufacturer. Fasten your seat belts and hang on. You'll enjoy the ride.

10/5/13 UPDATE: Some good news for those of you who have been patiently waiting for one of the best photo books we've ever seen:

Earlier this year, we offered two excellent new photo books by ace German racing photographer Rainer Schlegelmilch. Both were published by a company that no longer distributes their product line here in the US. We were assured by one of our European sources that they could supply both titles last spring. Unknown to them, one of those books, 'Sportscar Racing 1962-1973' had already sold out in their country and numerous attempts at acquiring them direct from the publisher (by us and them) proved unsuccessful. 

This week, we've been informed that our supplier has been able to secure a few cases of this impressive 540 page photo history book, allowing us to fill our existing orders. Unfortunately, due to the incredibly high cost to bring the books in from Europe (they weigh over 7 pounds each - without packaging), we will have to adjust our original price in order to cover actual shipping costs. 

Last spring, when we imported the other Schlegelmilch book, '50 Years of Formula One Photography' our airfreight costs ran as high as $30 per copy. Those of you who paid $59.95 got a real bargain on the best Formula One photo book ever produced!

We will be giving those of you who have orders on file for 'Sportscar Racing 1962-1973' first crack at these books. All of you will be notified by the end of the week. If there are any copies left, we will relist the book on our Online Shopping website. 


 

9/28/13 UPDATE: We've been told that Niki Lauda is in the process of signing the plates for Fujimi's Limited Edtion (500) 1/43 scale Ferrari 312T2 Presentation. We expect delivery in late October / early November. We're more than 2/3 sold out so if you haven't reserved one yet, you still have a little time. $155.00 Order HERE.

 

 

 

 


9/17/13 UPDATE: It's not too early to drop hints for Christmas. Here are two forthcoming 1/18 scale high-detail diecast models that any collector would be proud to have in their collection:

Another exciting new release from AutoArt. Their long-awaited 1/18 scale version of the 1955 LeMans winning Jaguar D-Type is due to arrive here in the US sometime in November.$286.00. Reserve HERE.

9/17/13 UPDATE: The first shipment of CMC's stunning new 1/18 scale Ferrari 312 P in 1969 Sebring livery is due to arrive in October. We still have a few slots open in our allotment from this shipment. $459.00 plus shipping. Reserve HERE


 

9/11/13 UPDATE: Spark has sent pre-order lists from their National Series of models covering cars that competed in this year's Spa and Nurburgring 24 Hour races and the World Touring Car Championship. Due to the limited availability and lead time of these models, we have decided not to add them to our Online Shopping website but we have made the lists available via Excel Spreadsheets of each series of offerings. You can download them below:

2013 Nurburgring 24 Hoursbbbbbbbbbb2013 Spa 24 Hoursbbbbbbbbbb2013 WTCC

Plese call or email your selections by the deadline dates indicated.


8/30/13 UPDATE: The release of the new Ron Howard film 'Rush' is now 4 weeks away and interest is heating up amongst race fans around the world. We are offering a new book entittled 'HUNT VS LAUDA' by Paul Fearnley on the 1976 Formula 1 season and Fujimi has announced a Niki Lauda signed 1/43 scale Limited Edition Resin Replica of Lauda's Ferrari 312 T2 from that amazing season. The books ship next week, the models are promised for October / November. Reserve now!


8/26/13 UPDATE: We're offering a framed, mint condition copy of 'Winners' by Nicholas A. Watts very nicely framed in wood and double matted. 'Winners' is signed by Derek Bell and Stefan Bellof and was released just weeks before Bellof's tragic death at Spa in 1985. They rarely come to market, especially here in the US. $695.00 plus shipping.


8/21/13 UPDATE: More good news for 1/18 scale model collectors: AutoArt's 1/18 scale Porsche 804 Formula 1 car has come off the dreaded 'TBA' list and will be here in a couple of weeks. Four versions are being offered, including the #30 1962 French Grand Prix winner with or without a Dan Gurney driver figure in the cockpit. Price on the Gurney driver figure version is still 'TBA'. Advance orders are strongly recommended. Click HERE for details.

Also, Spark announced several new 1/18 scale offerings yesterday, including the revolutionary #0 Nissan DeltaWing that competed at LeMans last year. We'll publish the entire list in an Email Update later this week. As always with 1/18 Spark, advance orders are very important.
