RACE RESULTS - 1962 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

In 1962 three school-friends formed the M.D.B (Model Drivers Band) from their surnames; Mallett, Davie and Boor. For three years we raced our Scalextric cars on replica circuits in Fred Mallett's large bedroom. I do not intend to bore the reader with details of how we organised the races, or who drove which car, but on this and the subsequent two pages, you will find listed the results of the races we ran.
