With the help from some loyal friends and readers of dirt-burners.com we have secured the funds for the RC Racing News/RC News magazine collection. I will soon transfer the money to the seller, and he will pack it up and send it. When the magazines arrive, I will post pictures of the front pages and the indexes, so those with “scanning tickets” can choose which magazines they want to see scanned first. Scanning the magazines is a big job, and I will not make a schedule for that task, but I will scan magazines when the time allows for it. The donors, scanning tickets or not, will get access to the files first. When I have scanned those selected magazines, I will scan the rest chronologically, from 1981 to 1984. The other part of the collection (1985-1987) will be scanned later. I have not decided how to share them with the public yet, but it will be done right here on dirt-burners.

Filip Williamsson

Mick Brown (owns 1 scanning ticket)

About TomEG 74 Articles
I have been into RC cars since the beginning of the 80's, but have really never been much of a racer. I competed in some local races and some "Tamiya Cups", and actually came 6th in the Tamiya Cup Norwegian Nationals in 1987. My main interest has always been building and modifying, and that's where I still am today. Through the years I have been able to build a solid network of contacts around the world, consisting of both former and current members of the industry, as well as quite a few of the former top drivers. I have a genuine interest for the history of the 1/10 scale off-road buggies from the 80's.
