Under the motto „Race on Sunday – Sell on Monday“, numerous so-called „Club Races“ took place in the USA in the 1950s and enjoyed great popularity among those actively involved as well as spectators. In these races, motor-sport-enthused private drivers were able to probe their driving skills and simultaneously push their mainly production-line sports cars to the limit, legally.
The corresponding vehicle dealers also put on suitable transport vehicles in support of their customers‘ vehicles at race tracks like Laguna Seca, Eagle Mountain or Elkhart Lake. For example, Volkswagen and Porsche dealer „Continental Motors“ of Fort Lauderdale in Florida operated an elegant and remarkable vehicle-trailer combination, consisting of an original VW T1 tractor unit and the associated trailer.
Thus vehicles such as the Porsche 550 Spyder or the Porsche 718 Spyder were able to be transported. Schuco is going to produce in a limited edition of 500 pieces a miniature model of this legendary VW T1 racing transporter to a scale of 1:18 in the PRO R line. This line, consisting of resin as the material, stands for exceptional and highly filigree small series models. By means of this highgrade model material, it is possible to produce very rare and exotic exemplary vehicles in perfect quality and also in low and exclusive production runs.
