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

German Police Porsche

This is a great German set features the Topple bridge section, the red and Orange No4 BMW, and the amazing Police Porsche.

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!  The American sets offer another aspect to 'a full collection'

Events / Exhibits

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

 

This scene is the prepartion ready for opening on the 1st day of the 2017 National slot car event....held every year at Gaydons British motor museum.

Unusual Items

Some items are very rare

Rare Race and Chase later type 12/18v controller with the black switch, PP6000 if you are lucky enough to find one.

 

Start Finish line (probably from a different HO scale maufacturer but fits the track lovely!  The lighted lap counter, a great addition to any layout.

Prototype Cars, like the light green TR7, orange Escort and pure white VW. Plenty still to find and shown on most of the early Powertrack and Speedtrack literature.

 

Unusual track and track add-ons, The loop track, the Cross Roads and the Jump track as well as the slip stream racing crossover and third car....the PACER!

 

Spare parts and accessories, chassis, tyres, pick-ups, springs, bodyshell parts,
