Vasek Polak Racing Team

Vasek Polak Racing Team
All racing teams usually have a gasoline lover behind them and the Vasek Polak Racing Team is a clear example of this. Its Czech founder Vasek Polak began his career as a mechanic and racing in local events in his native country. He moved to the USA where he started repairing US Army engines, and later he opened a small repair shop. A few years after that, he became the first seller of Porsche vehicles in North America. Creating his own racing team full of models like the 917, 934, 935, etc. was just a matter of time.

The lads at Decalcas have set their sights on a beautiful 1/24 scale livery of one of the Vasek Polak team's Porsche 934, specifically the winner of the 1976 SCCA Trans-American championship in its category, which you can use on both Tamiya and Revell models.

The manufacturer also told us that if there is a minimum number of interested modelers, then they will also release this decal in 1/12 scale :)

What is certain is that the 1/24 scale version can already be reserved at SpotModel :D

We especially love the work and definition of the decoration travellers cheques. Great job! This reference can be used with Tamiya and Revell models.
