Wheels in motion

Motoring started to really find its feet in the 1930s when engineering and competitive spirit came together in the form of racing cars. While careering round a track was only for the very bravest of men, mere mortals could get a safer slice of the action by racing spin dizzies – miniature tether cars modelled equal in size on racing cars which moved at nearly 70 miles per hour.

Authentic Models salutes those heady early days of motorsport with wonderfully detailed models of the cars and spin dizzies which so captured the hearts of their fans.
