Retro racing right now is currently in its eleventh year and going strong. This is far longer than slot racing's "heyday" back in the 1960s.


The reason is that Retro racing chose a set of rules which uses a scratchbuilding platform similar to the glory days of slot racing and powers the car by a powerplant that is low cost and very equal. Plus the cars look like cars of the late '60s and driving them is similar to the '60s.


Retro racing also has a nice mixture of racers from young to old. People who have bad things to say about Retro racing probably never tried racing Retro.
