I am very surprised at all the action in Argentina. I have viewed the Links given and the cars look very good to me. Perhaps soon we will see a few Argentine drivers in New Zealand although the problems might be that the seasons in both run at the same time.

Hi alfa boy!
I have copied the contact off our LINKS or the present UK GP Midget Car scene. Before they came along, from about 1934-58 the sport was only on the dirt track speedways. These days the GP Midgets prefer tarmac tracks. However, take a look at this:
For my part, I prefer the olden day midgets, but the GP Midgets are competitive and provide good entertainment for the spectators.
There is a way to get photos on to the site in quite large size as a message Post but I'm not sure how this is done. In LINKS on this site you'll find oldtimespeedway - that does have photos of midget cars in various countries, mostly old-time cars.
