Buy Lego Technic Racers

The Lego Technic range was a range of Lego that involved moving parts such as gears and rods which allowed the models to move more freely, in these models rather than just the standard lego studs, there were axles and pegs used. The models that could therefore be built were much more complex and the results much more satisfying, typically the audience that this was aimed at was quite a bit older than the traditional lego audience.

Later sets in the series evolved into the use of motors, pneumatic pieces and the development of the pieces developed for the Technic range eventually filtered down to the more standard sets such as the Bionicle sets which had a lot of moving parts.

This hub concentrates on the range of Technic models that were allied to the Racers theme, in particular the models of Formula 1 racing cars, these models were primarily Ferrari Forumla 1 cars but there was also a Williams model produced.

Williams F1 Team Racer No. 8374

This set was released in 2003 and contained a 1:27 scale model of a Williams Formula 1 racing car. This set contained only 92 pieces plus one minifigure of the driver.

This set was the precursor to the Ferrari models that were produced later in much more detailed and stylised form.

Ferrari F1 Racer No. 8386

This was the first Ferrari released in the Technics range in 2004 and was a beautiful 1:10 scale model containing a mind blowing 719 pieces.

This authentic Ferrari model let you dig into all of the detail of a true Ferrari F1 race car; the aerodynamic design, the monster V10 engine and the fully functional steering system. The model is an incredible 47cm long and features big tyres, colorful stickers and more to make it the ultimate racing machine.

This is a must-have for Ferrari fans and is really good value.

Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano No. 8145

This was the final Ferarri model released in the Technics range and was released in 2007, it featured a fantastic 1:10 scale mode of a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano sports car and contained an eye-watering 1329 pieces.

This model has a sophisticated design, a V12 engine with working pistons, opening doors and bonnet, and a working steering system. The working steering system turns front tyres and the V12 front mounted engine has working pistons.

This was probably the cream of te crop of the Technics Racers range and capped the range off well. Despite being such a wonderful model it can still be quite rare to find. If it is available on Ebay it will show up on the right.
