New Porsche prototype

This past Friday, at the Weissach test track, Porsche rolled-out its new LMDh prototype. Intended for both WEC and IMSA series, the car will be ready later this year. According to Motorsport.com, Team Penske will be responsible for the factory effort in both series in 2023.

For a Porsche fanboy AND a Le Mans nut, that is great news 😎.

24h Le Mans Virtual

Though I REALLY enjoy racing games, I have to admit that watching virtual racing is kind of weird…🤨 Well, I also don’t have much fun watching others playing if I’m not playing also, so maybe it’s just that. Nonetheless, with nothing better to do and nothing else race-related to watch at the moment, maybe this will be nice. Moreover, the graphics are as gorgeous as what I see with Forza 7 on my X Box System S, and it will be interesting to see Montoya against Verstappen…

It’s live now, so yes, I’ll take a peak 😄

Top 5 – 2021

This year I decided to do something different to close the year. Well, I almost did this last year, but with the COVID pandemic raging the idea kind of floundered. Anyway, the intent is to show the Top 5 models I reviewed in the year. Not just the best models from a craftsmanship perspective but models that for some reason have special significance to me or the W-143 Garage. So without further ado, and in chronological order, here are the Top 5 models of 2021:

Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR #104 – Spark

Not only a FRIGGENTASTIC model from Spark, also the final “factory” Silver Arrow for the W-143 Garage.

BMW 3.5 CSL #43 – Ixo

Though a so-called “budget” model, probably the best bang-for-the-buck I found in 2021.

Porsche 934 “Jägermeister” #68 – Spark

Not a winner, however being a Jägermeister car (the only one at Le Mans), a very dear model to me.

Porsche 935 #40 – Spark

A class winner and a special one for the Garage – the second of the X-Ray cars. And, Spark-goregous.

Porsche 911 (964) Carrera 4 RAUH-Welt Begriff “Waikato” – Tarmac Works

The nice surprise of the year – I was genuinely impressed by Tarmac Works. A GREAT model on a budget price.
