Gulf Racing Porsche 917 Le Mans Raceway
We’re so proud to feature this amazing work of “interactive art” from our friends at Slot Mods Raceways. Created by slot track pioneer and creative genius, David Beattie, this track grabs your attention from the start and never lets go. It is truly the representation of every gearhead’s dreams and passion for the racing spirit. In an era where kids are hunched over a tablet or staring at a TV with a controller in hand, it’s nice to know companies like Slot Mods can help us pass on our love for racing and Gulf to the next generation through their imaginative and over-the-top slot tracks.
Don’t just take our word for it, check out this video—but make sure you have a napkin to wipe off the drool!
If you are a hardcore Gulf and Porsche fan, this hand-made item is for you. This full-sized Porsche 917 replica that conceals a 1:32-scale working wooden slot car track faithful to the iconic Le Mans raceway. Painted in the same color scheme and #20 race number—an homage to the classic 1971 movie starring Steve McQueen—the 917 has genuine race-worn GT prototype tires on aluminum three-piece rims and working headlights and taillights.
The precisely molded replica cowling opens like a clamshell at the touch of a button to reveal the track within. Resplendent in its handcrafted detail, the raceway is built with realistic landscaping and includes period signage illuminated by working streetlights: the Esso Oil Drop Man near the Ford chicane, the Marchal sign on the famous three-level grandstand over pit row, the Martini barn, and the unmistakable Dunlop “tire” bridge. Hand-detailed aluminum Armco guardrails with weathered wooden posts convey additional realism.
Dual analog racing controllers provide precise control for the 12 included limited-edition slot cars, including the dominant racing models from 1970-1971, painted in authentic period livery: a Porsche 917, Ferrari 512 Coda Lunga, and Lola T70. Plugs into AC. Special conditions and guarantee limitations apply. 13 1/2′ L x 7 1/2′ W x 3′ H. (800 lbs.). Shipping costs quoted upon order request.
Each track is hand-built and made to order. Please contact us for more information on how to commission one for you and your family.
