Here we have the World’s only surviving American Sovereign 220’ Purple Mile expertly restored by master track builder Gary Gerding (Bill “Silky” Silknitter helped too!). The first one, the prototype built and delivered on June 21st, 1965 to Playland at The Beach in San Francisco.


Another truly magical track is the restored (Gerding again!) vintage American Black 95’ Royal which has the additional versatility in that it has been braided with Jim Honeycutt’s magnetic braid. This means we can run from 1/32 to 1/24 and the wonderful scale cars as well. Retro’s are super also.


For the Wings and fast gear we have a G7 Gerding Speed King that is 155’ of high speed action. NEW ADDITION OF AN ORIGINAL AMERICAN “ARISTOCRAT” HILLCLIMB


Rounding out we also have a very unique and great configuration modified Oglivie Figure 8 that must be driven to appreciate the wonderful rhythm this configuration affords.   

Lenjet HO Raceway- The site of the F1 race is developing into a unique raceway dedicated to promoting the latest designs in tracks but also preserving the

history of HO slot car racing. The 4,000 sq. foot facility attached to Modelville features some truly amazing tracks. We will feature 6 custom tracks including some one of a kind and vintage tracks that made the 70‘s so interesting.


We have duplicated the Purple Mile in HO scale with a faithful replica in 8 lanes and 30 feet long is the ultimate in high speed racing mirroring

the experience that 1/24th scale people love about the original. Brad Bowman has performed a miracle!
