About Us

We have relocated to 7/19 Hotham Parade, Artarmon.

You are welcome to visit us, however, our showroom is currently not complete and we thank you for your understanding and apologise for any inconvenience our move may cause you.

Armchair Racer specialises in 1:32 scale model slot cars but also supports 1:24 scale, 1:43 scale and 1:64 scale.

Since its beginnings in 1995, Armchair Racer has grown and now offers a full range of services to the slot car community including:

  • Showroom open 5 1/2 days with a comprehensive range of slot car and hobby supplies
  • Prompt local and worldwide mail order service
  • Workshops
  • Service and restoration work
  • Wholesale supplier for leading brands including Slot.it, Policar, Sideways, Thunderslot, Mr Slot Car, MB Slot, Le Mans Minatures and Cartrix

Armchair Racer operated from the Lane Cove retail centre until 2005 when we moved to the Artarmon industrial area. In 2010 we relocated to larger premises in Hotham Parade and in late June 2018 again relocated across the road to 7/19 Hotham Parade. We are only 10 - 15 minutes by car or train from the Sydney CBD.

Our proprietor, Jim Berry, is well known across the industry and our team consisting of David, Cathy, Will and Rob are committed to providing you with detailed advice and service so that you get the most out of your hobby.

We regularly provide information for books, magazines, radio and TV shows.

We would like to sincerely thank all our customers for your on-going support. We know you have many choices across the world where you can purchase your slot car and hobby supplies and we thank you for choosing Armchair Racer.

We welcome you to visit or contact us.
