Drivers’ View:

The DTM has always been the home of exotic touring cars, and the eras covered in this class are among the most extreme. As slot cars, the earlier Class 1 era of the mid-Nineties was represented by Ninco with NC-1 powered models that are low on detail but high on entertainment. Later on the post-2000 cars saw Ninco fitting its big, torquey long can motors while Scalextric and SCX competed with deft track behaviour. A great mix of options.
