In 1948 Dane, Wagner
Slot built a rather curious device which he entered in the September 500cc meeting at Sweden's
Jägersro near Malmö. The car's shape resembled that of a barrel on wheels with the front end of the
'barrel' being higher than the rear one. The car had worm drive steering and this, coupled
with the high rolling centre and the lacking experience of the driver, had devastating
effects, as Slot rolled the car at Jägersro and was badly hurt.

the Slot resting in the paddock
Wagner Slot made the
wise decision in that situation and luckily neither he, nor the car, was ever seen
Our sincere thanks
to Morten Alstrup, Anders Bonde and Vagn Nielsen for researching this car.
