Founded in 1998, AXEL’R is today based in the little village of Cournonterral near the great town of Montpellier on the south coast of France at 60kls of the race track of Ledenon.
Roger Dutemple created AXEL’R to meet the needs of drivers and collectors. Each model is the result of extensive research. They are made to the internationally recognised collectors 1:43 scale and are 10 to 12,5 cms long. Other scales will be developed in the future.
