It's the third and deciding heat of the Great Britain versus Sweden 1:32 scale test match. Peter Collins edged it in heat one on the kitchen lino, Anders Michanek won a dramatic heat two on the rather grippy living room carpet, so it's all to race for on the super slick polished dining room table. Perhaps track man Ole Olsen has overdone it with the Mr Sheen again...  


  1. Peter Collins nephew, Ade, is leading the UK Short Track series with two wins from two races on the HM Plant supported Honda CRF. Class act. G

  2. man these bring back some memories!.
    i loved em as a boy.
    had speedway bike wallpaper aswell!.

  3. These Britain’s models are actually quite rare now and if they are boxed and in original condition, they are valued at well over £100 a set. I had some when I was a kid, and as it was the mid eighties I customised them with dayglo fork covers and wheel spoilers, and painted the riders leathers, instantly making them absolutely worthless...

    Speedway wallpaper? you are making us all jealous now Steve.

    As far as the Short Track goes, I am hoping to get across to Amman Valley in a couple of weeks as it looks like a great event.
