Armchair Racer operated from the Lane Cove retail centre until 2005 when we moved to the Artarmon industrial area. In September 2010 we again relocated to larger premises to our current location at 18 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 Rob, David S, Cathy, Will, Jason, David T, Alex and Lachie are committed to providing you with detailed advice and service so that you get the most out of your hobby.

We also have a large slot car "museum" which includes thousands of slot cars and memorabilia spanning from the early 1950's. 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.
