britains model speedway rider, i had this when i was a kid, you got two riders and i can remember the day i got it, i was staying with my nan at the time and we went into derby on saturday morning, we did the normal shop and we went to ratcliffes toy shop on the spot to buy it, they didn't have any in stock so we went to the model shop on the old cockpitt hill market, they had them in stock and i parted with my birthday money, i can remember playing with them, racing both bikes against each other on my nan's sofa, the crashes became more and more spectacular and i broke the handlebar off one of the models, gutted, i haven't got them now but i'm following one on ebay at the minute, hope i can bag it.
