Vintage Matchbox RACE & CHASE Power Track Set Police Car Corvette U Turn RARE. A rare vintage 1978/9 Matchbox RACE & CHASE Powertrack with WORKING LIGHTS. The CARS that U TURN. Featuring a Police Car and a Corvette which both have new tires. Great graphics on box. (please examine all pictures carefully as they form part of the item description). PT-6000’RACE & CHASE’ was the slot racing phenomena of 1978/9. Launched before Christmas it was a massive hit worldwide. The introduction of’U-turn’ hand controls was entirely new and brilliantly simple. The addition of the Police car was the icing on the cake. The other unsung benefit of Race & Chase is it did not require the circuit to make a circuit! It was possible to create a long snake like track, open at both ends. The cars did not need a full circuit to obtain power. No other system could offer that! Racing Track Length: 4.5m [14ft]. Box Dimensions: Length 29-1/4″, Width 19-1/4″, Height 3-5/8 (all measurements approx). Condition: This vintage played with race set is in working condition consistent with age and use. Both cars have working lights and new tires. There looks to be an old repair to the Police cars metal track glide. The box is in good overall condition considering its age.
