The NSR 24 Hour World Endurance (Slot Car) Race was held in Soragna, Italy, April 17, 2010 on Ninco tracks.
I used to like racing on a King track under USRA (United Slot Racers Association) wing car rules, but these slot cars are great looking scale cars. The drivers couldn’t be more dedicated to their sport to race for 24 hours.
There seem to be a lot of lame April Fools jokes on the internets today, but he Spaghetti Harvest story wasn’t, when it first came out in 1957. Things were different then.
I remember seeing the US rebroadcast of the story when it aired in 1957. It was originally produced by the BBC television series, Panorama; it seemed plausible at the time.
60frames over at YouTube put up this video and writes, “It’s been eight long years since the boys said wassup to each other. Even with the effects of a down economy and imminent change in the White House, the boys are still able to come together and stay true to what really matters.”
