I am a sucker for nicely sceniced tracks and this is one of the most beautiful 1/32 tracks I've ever seen. Sadly, it doesn't exist any more. It was located in a commercial building but evidently shortly after getting to this stage in 2009, the company was forced into liquidation and the track had to be dismantled. The builder was someone named Graham, but I don't know which Graham nor do I know the location, but assume it was in the UK. Anyone with further info in terms of the owner or location, please post it.
 
The lap length of not-so "Little" Bromley was 125', and it was housed in a room that was 56 feet long by 30 feet wide. Track used was Scalextric Sport.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Greg,
 
The guy is Graham Poulton, a great modeller who's products can be found on the GP-Miniatures website. He posts on SlotForum under the name Zagato.

David,

Thanks for ID'ing which Graham. I had several others in mind as well.

 

Slotblog has GP-Miniatures listed in the Links area, of course.
