Sad news... Buzz & Dolores Perri, owners of Buzz-A-Rama in Brooklyn New York for 56 years, have both left us.
They were true icons to the hobby of slot car racing, and enriched the lives of generations of kids of all ages who had visited their raceway.

Dolores C. Perri (1939 - 2021) passed away on April 30, 2021 after contracting covid-19.

Frank "Buzz" Perri left us on May 13, 2021.

Their son Frank Perri Jr. posted that his father died of a broken heart. They were married 61 years, and were inseperable.

"My deepest condolences to the Perri family for the passing of Buzzy and Dolores Perri. The slot car world just lost one of the most iconic figures I ever met. Always with a smile on his face, Buzzy was a true slot car enthusiast who kept BUZZ-A-RAMA open since 1965, at the same address in Brooklyn. Dolores was always with him, what a beautiful experience it was to witness the relationship they shared, very inspiring. Buzzy was also very inspiring, believing that slot car racing was a wonderful way to teach kids, dexterity, sportsmanship, math and science all in one hobby! I had the opportunity to have long conversations with both of them, memories that I will treasure forever! What beautiful souls they both were, Rest in Peace Buzzy and Dolores Perri."
