A second orange track layout was available for Sizzlers in 1971. It comes from the U.K. It’s the Pursuit Set.
This set comes with 14 feet of orange track, 4 joiners, 2 single-lane trestles, one 200 degree dual-lane curve, two 180 degree single-lane turns and 1 Juice Machine.
I think this is a 1971 set. In the above picture you can see the Collector’s Catalogue is 1970 and the Pursuit Set instructions have a 1969 date in the bottom left corner (this means the instructions were copyrighted in 1969 and ready for publication in 1970). But, as you can see in the following box pictures, the lower left copyright date is 1970 (indicating production would happen in 1971) and the side of the box shows not only the 6 cars from 1970 but 6 more from the 1971 year (Spoil Sport, Camaro Trans-Am, Anteater, ‘Cuda Trans-Am, Side Burn, and Backfire).
The idea of this set is to start 2 cars off in the dual-lane section of the track. One car will quickly come back on the short section and the other will head out on the long section. At some point, as the laps mount, the faster car will gain on the other car. When the faster car bumps into the slower one, the pursuit is complete.
Here’s how it works with a 1970 Mustang Boss 302 and a 2006 reissue of the Live Wire.
See how the chase plays out on my YouTube video.
So there you have it. The 1971 Hot Wheels Sizzlers Pursuit Set from the United Kingdom.
It’s still fast. Still fun.
