Slot Racing History

Brooklands lap record holder - the Napier  Railton Special   



A few photos of the rail racing track at Brooklands in August 2000, top & bottom view of an Auto Union rail car built in the 1950's by Walkden Fisher and a diagram to show how it all works.  Rail racing cars were guided by a rail above the track surface - and this was later replaced with by tracks with a slot sunk into the surface - slot racing  as we know it! 

The track shown was built by Jeff Davies and a host of volunteers from the Wye Valley Club. What are the cars like to drive - how are the cars and tracks built? 

There were articles telling you much more about it all in BSCRA's Slot Car Racing News magazine - free to BSCRA members.
