60th Anniversary MGB

A special Christmas present from Kieron in the form of a yellow MGB in Scalextric's 60th Anniversary range.

Scalextric are celebrating their 60th Anniversary with the release of a special collectors' series of cars, each in special edition packaging and featuring a 60th Anniversary holographic logo on the car. Only 250 pieces of each model will be released.

This MGB is from the Thoroughbred Sports Car Series and is driven by Roy McCarthy.  Roy and his two sons, Russell and Spencer, formed McCarthy Motorsport using Roy’s knowledge and expertise with MGs.  Over the years, the family took hundreds of podiums and class wins across many historic racing championship classes.  Sadly, Roy passed away in 2010 but his sons continue to race with Russell recently winning the Thoroughbred Sportscar Championship in 2015.

I'm shocked to discover this is only my fifth blog this calendar year.  This hobby has definitely taken a back seat in the last year or two.  Here's hoping I get more time with the cars in 2018.
