White Lake Formula One Ring Slot Car Track
by Mark R
We have reported on a lot of cool racing track toys like the one with the corrugated cardboard and R/C car, not to mention the Intersecting Slot Car and Train set.
This White Lake Formula One Ring is probably one of the greatest, if not the greatest, slot car set ever made. It’s hard to believe that it is part of a private collection, and not some sort of museum piece.
You can watch a video of the track itself on a video after the jump. Designed by James-Michael Gregory Harlan, the track is done in 1/32 scale course with a 145 foot length and “19 Forumula1 worthy turns”.
Man, this guy must have a basement the size of New Jersey and most have spent months trying to get every detail right.
You know what it reminds me of? Speed Racer. I know I have said this before, but that movie totally rocked, despite the fact that it was a box office bomb. I remember thinking that it would be great to see life-sized race tracks that appeared in that movie, but this particular set up is probably the next best thing.
I wonder if this is a world record for the longest slot car track? If it isn’t, then I can’t help but wonder what the longest one is.
