Slot Cars – the toy for the boy in all of us

I was looking at Der Spiegel this morning when I noticed this photo of a 917 body tilted sideways and revealing a slot cars set up underneath it, so I took a look and discovered these great pics of close up photos of fantastic slot car setups.  All this brings back memories of being a kid and dreaming about and racing mostly HO cars.  The last large scale Slot Car Racing setup around where I grew up closed in the early seventies but I did notice a brief revival in NYC about ten years ago when a track opened on Broadway and 19th Street.  I don’t think it’s there any longer.  I would love to hear from fans of model car racing and info on where the are tracks to race on.
