Porsche Retro Racing
We were delighted when Peter Vardy: Porsche asked us to return to their newly completed premises with our Giant Scalextrics and Vintage Sega Rally to participate in their open day at their Aberdeen branch.
Bringing our Scalextrics sized Porsche Boxter cars we were set up in a splendid area with a huge Porsche Carrera mural as our backdrop to the days racing. There was a fantastic atmosphere throughout the whole day with guests enjoying complimentary canapes and drinks. Guests were eager to try the Scalextrics and they themselves raced over to have a shot of a game that many remembered fondly from their youth.
Even with the overall speed reduced by a significant amount, novice Scalextrics racers took some time to get the lay of the land. The more laps the accomplished the more skilled they became - reducing the off track flips to a minimum as they took the fast corners slower as they should.
Meanwhile over on the other side of the showroom next to the two fabulous vintage Porsche cars was our equally as retro Sega Rally the younger crowd competed through the rally course as fast as they could - needless to say I'm glad we switched on the damage control.
Once again we had a great event within the Porsche show room and enjoyed the hospitality from Rohan for the duration. Same time next year?
