I recall one - perhaps called "Grand Prix". All that I can remember about it is that you could make a choice to go through a corner "one gear higher" and then roll the dice to see if you made it.
We (me & my 2 lads) still play mineI have a well used Waddingtons Formula One board game in the loft. This sold very well in the sixties and there are loads on eBay. Anybody still play with theirs or have distant memories of 'tyre wear 1, brake wear 2' on their little card dashboards?
Looks like riding the guard rails hard was the best optionDo you like Subbuteo?
Do you like Scalextric?
Are you really good at Snooker because you never went to school?
Good. Then you need Pitchcar.
Yes, this was the USA version of the same thing - virtually identical and marketed by Parker Brothers of Monopoly fame. They had some sort of link with Waddingtons and sold each others games on either side of the pond.I recall one - perhaps called "Grand Prix".

I saw that too David, had my hands full at the time , and forgot to go back and investigate further. Like you I don't recall it back in the day.....I remember playing the Waddingtons Formula 1 game through the school holidays, we would have a season of races lasting for weeks.I happened to see a Waddingtons Rally board game at Gaydon on Saturday, it looked like a similar vintage to the F1 game but I have never heard of it before.David
