I bought 4 Scalextric classic track quarter straights at a swapmeet yesterday. When I got home I noticed that the rails on one of them were not parallel to the track. Also the track is slightly wedge shaped, 88mm long on one side and 81mm long on the other.

Clearly this track belongs with some other specialised track, but which one? Is it rare?, valuable?, junk?

The number on the back is MM/PT99L.

Good pickup. They are used for making banked curves out of normal flat standard curves using one as a lead in, another as a lead out. As such, they pre-date the invention of the banked curve track.

Cheers

You can´t use them with standard curves! PT99L/R came with PT98 Speed Banking kit which was the older banked curve set http://www.ukslotcars.co.uk/scalextricweb/disc1_frm.htm

The track has been posted; you should have it by the end of the week.
