Continuing our trip down Neo memory lane, with our second trip to the event. It’s 2008 and the first time the event moved to it’s now traditional Easter date.
The 2008 Neo-invitational saw even more international stars take the trip across the pond (or the channel) and the event was fast on it’s way to becoming the unofficial “Indoor Worlds”.
And remember, we will be live with the whole of the NeoX event this weekend starting On Friday Morning and running all the way through to the Main Final on Monday Afternoon!
In anticipation of our weekend of Live Streaming form the NeoX, we thought we’d plunder our archives for a look at our previous visits to the Harper Adams College (or the Shed in Telford)
First up is the 2006 event (the Second Neo race – called the Neo Invitational). Over 1.3 million people have viewed this video that covers the action from the final in glorious 4:3 (it’s amazing how far YouTube and broadcasting in general have come since 2006)
More cracking retro action over the next few days before Broadcasting begins on Friday Morning!
Another video oddity for you here – step by step instructions on how to build a scale inspection ramp. Aimed primarily at the diorama builders amongst us, it could also be a lucrative sideline as you could become an RC M.O.T test centre …….. (for those readers outside the UK an MOT is, er well google it!)

Check out this sweet movie from Pro-Line that highlights their new Chevy Silverado Axial SCX10 Trail Honcho, the unique-looking trail truck that replicates a pick-up truck that has had its cargo bed replaced with a roll cage. The truck has been made to look even more realistic by using the fantastic 1.9” Flat Iron tires!
