Large models with removable bodywork can stand out from the rest with a pair of 1/18th scale body stands. They are cheap and easy to make.

Model Mounts by Austin presents (mostly) racing models in a way that’s great. 1/18th scale models are mounted on large hand-decorated bases.
I came across the movie Lime Rock Park: The Secret Valley of Racing purely by chance. If you’ve been to the track, you will love this movie.
