Look like a pair of '58 Listers to me. These were in the Triang Scalextric catalogue up until '63 so they've got to be 45 years old. With a bit of fettling we had them both running this year with the attendant smell of burnt dust and lube oil. I have got some vintage "clip" track somewhere but haven't seen it for 20 years. Most recent good Jag driving I've witnessed would have to be Frank Sytner at the wheel of Mr Bamford's car, fantastic finely balanced drifting with that beautiful blue smoke wafting around the inside rear tyre.
