Default Any news on Ninco's return to slot car sets?

I have been reading through older posts on this forum as well as another forum, to catch up on what i have missed the past few years. I put the track and cars in storage and took a break.

I read somewhere back in a 2015 post I believe, that Ninco was moving their production from China back to Spain. Just wondering if there has been any new developments that someone could share about this? Am hoping this wasn't just speculation but based on some factual news from NINCO themselves.

Ninco in terms of slot cars seem to be doing 1/43 and some lexan bodied 132 cars on the universal chassis they announced a few years back. It seems the 1/32 moulds for cars are unlikely to be released again - I heard that the moulds aren't in a useable condition and given they had moved towards RC products it seems unlikely they will invest in new moulds. Add to this SCX has an issue with licensing or such which means we may not see any SCX cars anytime soon - not good for the slot hobby -
