    I post this every few years and admire ability Major Wallis had. .... He built something that very few other people could even come close to building with left over parts from WW2 airplanes, during 44-45. Remember that he even wound his own motors...... I don't think anyone can claim to have produced a true slot controlled track before he did. .... Baigent and those other Brits may get credit,,, but it looks to me like the Major beat them al by 10 years or more..... Watch the video and see what he did.... He had many patents and inventions, ,,inlcuding the gyro copter....Luckily this was filmed a she has been gone a couple year now..

    Thanks for posting the link to the video - he certainly was a pioneer in what became slot car racing and a very ingenious fellow.

      What an amazing story. I can't imagine the hours it took to build the cars and track. True scratch building. Thank's for sharing. Be well, RB
