ID four cars built by a pro on west coast?

Can anybody ID these four cars that I won on eBay awhile back?

The only thing the seller told me was that it was from the west coast and he had them in storage for a very long time.

CG Slotcars Announces Autocoast Ti22 Can-Am 1/32 RTR

CG Slotcars plan to release the Autocoast Ti22 Can-Am in 2017 as a RTR 1/32 slot car.

These photos are of the first prototype and it is very close to being ready - production will start shortly.

The first production built slot car will be raffled off during the 7th Annual Michigan 24hr race April 1-2. The raffle winner will receive the car before anyone else. If you want the chance to own it - please consider donating to the annual charity raffle held during the race. All of the proceeds from the raffle are split among the teams entered and the money is donated to that teams charity. 

More details and a link to the list of prizes are here: Slot Racers Giving Back Raffle

If you don't win the car - or the other great prizes we have donated - there are other great prizes to be won! You just donate to enter.

This car (like the others CG Slotcars have done) has a fascinating history. There were two Ti22's built and both (unfortunately) were destroyed. A 1:1 replica of the Ti22 has recently been completed and is expected to compete in the Can-Am reunion race as part of the Long Beach Grand Prix weekend.

The Ti22 designer Peter Bryant eventually went to work with Shadow. Maybe we'll tell that story with a slotcar in the future!

'Slot Racers Giving Back' at MI 24-hour enduro

The 7th(!) Annual Michigan 24-Hour Endurance race is just around the corner – this year’s race will be held from March 31-April 2, 2017.


In addition to the world-class racing, a hallmark of this event is the “Slot Racers Giving Back” (SRGB) fundraising for charity.
We're a bit late getting the ball rolling on this year's SRGB fundraising; however, with your support we're confident we can have a successful campaign. We will follow the same general format as last year's event.

• You can purchase tickets online and ticket numbers will be updated and posted regularly throughout the course of the event (see link above). Tickets are $1 each.

• A complete list of prizes from charity sponsors will also be published and updated regularly (see link above). We’ve already started lining up sponsors and prizes – there are a lot of great prizes! A partial list of sponsors includes:

Home Racing World
Changing Gears
Cloverleaf Racing
Slot Car Corner Canada
Paul Gage Tires
C.B. Design Wheels
Slot Car Corner
Quick Slicks

If you are interested in donating a prize for this fundraising event, please let us know.

• The deadline to purchase tickets online will be Sunday, April 2, at 10 AM. ET. A final list of contributors and tickets will then be published.

Like last year’s event, we will “draw” prize winners electronically (randomly) and post results sometime Sunday afternoon. 

As in previous years, 100% of the charity raffle proceeds will be donated to actual charities. The total raffle proceeds will be split equally five ways – each of the five teams participating in this year’s event will then donate their share to a charity of their choice.

Please consider making a donation - $1, $5, $10 or whatever you can afford would be greatly appreciated! To make a donation, please click on any of the links below.
