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.

Mick Brown (owns 1 scanning ticket)
Guillaume Fleury (owns 2 scanning tickets)
Erik de Sterk (owns 2 scanning tickets)
