A very important person in the early days of Slot Car racing in the Toronto area was the late George Maxwell (originator of the Mini Grid store). In the 1960’s, he had a Slot Car track in his home called Maxport. As a young boy, I would read about all the racing that took place there in Car Model magazine. His track was also featured in a Macleans magazine article, can you imagine our hobby gets mentioned in a popular national magazine?
George also raced a 1:1 car and it happened to be a Datsun 510.
