NEWS: Flyslot Brabham BT44

FlySlot have just release their latest offering, Brabham's BT44 from 1975 and if the photos are anything to go by, she's going to be a cracker!  Fly and FlySlot have been releasing historic F1s for many years now and the BT44 is a welcome addition, its great to see FlySlot releasing an completely new model.  I think you'll agree that the Martini livery is absolutely striking.  Like all Flyslot classic F1s, the BT44 comes with front steering wheels, something I really like.

If initial sellout sales here in Australia are any indication, you'd be wise to place an order at your favourite slot shop if you want one.

From Wikipedia: 'The Brabham BT44 was a Formula One racing car designed by Gordon Murray, Brabham's chief designer. An update of the partially successful BT42 of 1973, the BT44 was a simple design with a standard Ford DFV/Hewland gearbox combination, but was very clean aerodynamically. Murray had an eye for clean lines, and the BT44 was particularly graceful. He was also a forward thinker, and tinkered with side skirts and airdams on the car, a precursor to ground effects aerodynamics.

Sponsorship came from Martini.  The 1974 season was successful for Brabham. Carlos Reutemann took 3 wins with the car, partnered by Carlos Pace who was able to string a series of promising results together. Brabham finished at a fighting fifth place in the Constructor's Championship after a closely fought season.'
