This 1/12th Ishimasa FF12E chassis from 1979, world’s first front wheel drive rc car. It came with a couple of different body types. There was a Porsche 917, the Savanna RX-7 a Renault Mirage. There may have been more.
Presented in ‘Graupner Neuheitenkatalog 1980′, Graupner followed the first successes achieved in 1979 with the vehicle in some national races.

Vintage Night Again 26th July

Dig out that old truck or buggy and come and give it a blast on our off road track.

Plenty of others to have a race against.

Got a Lunchbox? Come and give it a blast, you know you want too!

Vintage Racing 31st May 2013

Bring your vintage RC car down to Broxtowe and give it a run on our off road track. We have done this a couple of times over the last winter indoor series and it has proved extremely popular. It gives you a chance to run that old RC car you have sitting on the shelf in a non competitive and fun event. Even Tamiya re releases are catered for in the same heats. We can even put a heat of vintage on road rc cars if enough turn up. Try to leave em standard though. This isn’t about getting round the track the fastest, it’s all about having a bit of fun!

Get down to Broxtowe and “Bring out yer Dead” 3! May 31st 2013

Bring out yer dead - 2 - The Re-animation!

March 2nd 2013 is another chance to bring out your old Buggy, Lunchbox, Wild Willy, Hornet or other non race car that you would not normally race.
Get em out the loft, of the shelf or out the cupboard and come and ‘ave a laugh.
The last event was excellent fun!

Vintage Buggy Night

December 8th. Got an old buggy you haven’t run for a while? Got a lunch box you would just love to thrash round our track? Want to blow the cobwebs of your old Tamiya Hot-Shot? Come along on Saturday December 8th and run your old buggy without worrying about being last or looking silly. A group of racers has requested this for the above date and invite as many as possible to come along and join them.
