The 12/18v Powertrack Plus Collection
The 12/18v Powertrack Plus Collection

After nearly 40 years these sets still work and are testiment to those that designed and developed them and held the responsibility of enjoyment for me and many of my now collector friends.

I'm pleased you found your way to my Powertrack, Powertrack Plus and Lanechanger site. 

This site is dedicated to 'arguably' the best boys toy of the mid seventies and early eighties!

Please enjoy looking through this site, hopefully it will be both fun as well as a little education in how to keep these legendary sets and cars working, collected and also stored/displayed.

If you like the site or want to help me make it better please use the contact button or make a comment on the guestbook page.

If you have just bought a set for renovation, I have put all the set paperwork available for download and I hope you find the rest of the site interesting.

I am looking for ideas of what people want on this site and I am with the help of others preserving this fantastic toy slot car system.  Email or send me your Powertrack pictures, I will gladly publish them with a 'picture provided by message'.
Keep on Powertracking!

I do offer spares and all sets/track and cars for sale. If its not listed just use the contact form. Please see the SALES section and choose Powertrack or Lanechanger. Thank you

German Race and Chase Set

PP9000 Loop Track

Loop Track

This is the Loop track from the Powertrack Plus 9000 set

 

 

Objectives for me

Currently I am looking at recreating those cars that today are highly collectable, so they can be enjoyed by many. Saving them from the attic/loft or even the tidy tip!!

Re-create those presentation boxes with clear plastic CAPS so these wonderful cars can be displayed easily and cheaply for collectors.

Cleaning and maintenance techniques, Track layouts maybe even the Formation of an appreciation club.

Thanks to Paul for this great picture. The Villain van finally cornered by the Police car!

Events

We hope to build the team and the awareness so that for the future we can have stalls and shows all around the country. Keeping this amazing slot car system running for many years to come
