I'm Bob Burr and the owner of FTD Models. I have myself been involved in racing RC Cars since 1994... so I think I can say that I am a bit of an RC Nut!
Which brings me to why I opened the shop. In 2003 I decided that I wanted to open an old style model shop; one where you can go in and actually see items on shelves and have a good look around. Not where everything is behind glass doors and you can't really get to see what you want.
I am happy to say that after all these years in business I am still as happy now as when I first opened the doors of FTD Models.
In the shop I have my youngest son Luke (also joint owner) which makes it a nice family business. Luke has also been racing since 1994; indoor, off-road, and now back racing touring cars at Bedworth.
My eldest son Dale works for the Mercedes AMG F1 team. Dale is probably best known for his RC-Timing computer program used by clubs across the country. Dale can also be found racing touring cars around the UK (and has tried most classes at one time or another).
