NEWS: Avant LE Lemans 2007

Avant Slot due to release Le Mans 2007 LE Box Set

It seems these days all slot car manufacture are releasing LE box sets. Avant Slot who are a relatively new comers to the slot cars world, have joined the 'Box Brigade'. The box set will feature the top 3 cars to finish the Le Mans 24hr endurance race of 2007. Avant Slot have already released the Audi R10 TDi slot in Australia are set to follow up with the Peugeot 908 HDi and the Pescarolo Sport 07. The 908 HDi and R10 TDi are shaping up to be the most prolific models for 2008 with Carrera, SCX, Scalextric and now Avant due to release them.

The box set is limited to 1000 units and looks set to cost around the $250 mark. The box set will feature the Audi Sport North America winning car, runner up Team Peugeot Total 908 and the 3rd place car, Pescarolo Sport 07. I have always enjoyed watching the Pescarolos at Le Mans, so the release of the Pescarolo 2007 car is something I'm really looking forward too. One can only assume that Avant Slot will be releasing the 908 HDi and the Pescarolo as separate slots to cover model tooling costs.
