C3759a Scalextric Legends Tyrrell 002 – Francois Cevert – Sale

These Limited Edition Tyrell 002 Scalextric cars are a must have for any Scalextric fan. In 1971 Francois Cevert became only the second Frenchman to win a Formula One World Championship Grand Prix (Maurice Trintignant won at Monaco in 1955 and 1958) and the result helped him take third place in the 1971 Driver’s Championship behind Stewart and Ronnie Peterson. The win would stand as his only victory. At Watkins Glen, USA, the final race of the 71 season, Stewart had already wrapped up his second world title. In the race, the Tyrrell twins held their customary one and two positions, only Denis Hulme’s McLaren seeming able to mount any kind of challenge. But then both Stewart and Hulme started to experience handling problems and Jackie waved Francois through into the lead. Despite a late challenge from a hard charging Jacky Ickx in the Ferrari, Cevert held on to the lead while Ickx’s car broke under the strain and claimed his first F1 championship win. Race: USA Grand Prix 1971 – Driver: Francois Cevert – Chassis 002, No9. Easy Change Pick-ups, High Detail, Magnatraction. Limited to only 5000 models in total.

  • Officially Licensed Scalextric Product.

Essential Phone is now a more reasonable $499

Josh Miller/CNET

The heavily hyped, Andy Rubin-backed Essential phone launched late in August. Now, two months later, its price has been cut from £699 to £499. The news was announced in a Sunday blog post[1] by company president Niccolo de Masi.

He said the price cut comes in lieu of the company spending money on an expensive marketing campaign. “We could have created a massive TV campaign to capture your attention,” Masi wrote, “but we think making it easier for people to get their hands on our first products is a better way to get to know us.” A spokesperson added to this, telling CNET, “We’ve heard from many people that once they got their hands on an Essential Phone they were hooked by the device’s unique look and feel… it was a strategic decision to invest in bold pricing to get our products into more hands instead of traditional marketing such as TV to generate awareness and word of mouth.”

People who bought the phone upon release could be understandably miffed, so Essential is offering anyone who did so[2] prior to Oct.

22 £200 off their next phone or 360 camera purchase. The caveat is you, or whoever you give the voucher to, have to use it by Dec.

15. The Essential Phone PH-1[3] is a beautiful device, but didn’t meet expectations considering its pedigree — the company is founded by Andy Rubin, the co-founder of Android — and hefty price.

But that price isn’t so hefty now. The Essential Phone now competes with midrange phones[4] like the Moto Play Z2[5], rather than the Apple iPhones[6] and the Google Pixels[7] of the world. With that, it’s now an easier phone to recommend.

It’s powered by a super-speedy Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, with the price cut making it among the cheapest phones sporting it. Only the currently-out-of-stock OnePlus 5[8] beats Essential, at £479, though you’ll have to order that phone online. The life of the PH-1 hasn’t been all smooth.

Originally scheduled for a June release, it was delayed several times[9]. It launched with dodgy camera app[10], which has since been updated, and it failed our drop test[11] despite the company’s claims that the titanium and ceramic phone doesn’t need a case.
