The History of Slot Car City started
over seven years ago when the owner Mick Antonelli was an avid slot car racer
and competed in many weekly and USRA events and has been racing on and off
since 1977. With a dream of owning a slot car track since the early eighties
and watching each slot car track go out of business he felt he could do a
better job keeping a slot car track open. In early 1992 while out on tour
racing he came across a Blue King track that he raced on in the past. The
price was right so there in that moment of the purchase of the Hassie Blue
King #1, Slot Car City was born. We hope you enjoy the pictures along the
way to the building of Slot Car City.
