Hi, I've been reading this forum for a while but have finally decided to subscribe. My name is Tim and I have been interested in cars for as long as I can remember, in fact the earliest picture of me shows me clutching my favourite Dinky car in front of the camera! I have never been sure what exactly triggered such an interest but have always suspected living close to Crystal Palace race track (very much within earshot!) might have had something to do with it. Although I was very young, I have a vivid memory of my late father taking me to spectate, we would have stood somewhere near the old dry ski slope! Now, years later, I have an interest in slot car racing (like some others on here) and race every Thursday night. The Crystal Palace interest has still not left me and my current Tin Top slot car is a model of Fitzpatrick's Broadspeed entry at Crystal Palace in May 1966. I am hoping to build some other models from earlier seasons, all based on cars that raced at Crystal Palace, and am hoping that someone on here can help me with my research.
Away from Crystal Palace, I am always impressed by the wealth of knowledge shown on here and the interesting topics that appear long may it continue
