Bank on it

Sir, In his review of Scalextric by Roger Gillham (November issue), Bill Boddy wonders if Scalextric ever produced banked track. Indeed it did; as a child in the 1970s I had a set which could be built as a figure-of eight or as a short oval with banked corners at each end.

The banking was steep, probably around 45deg, so too little throttle and you were down the banking; too much and you ended up in the ‘woods’, like at Monza.
