1971 Sizzlers tracks came as 2 orange tracks and 3 black Fat Tracks.

Of the orange tracks one was for North America and one for the United Kingdom.

The big advance for 1971 was the advent of Fat Track.  This gave Sizzlers cars room to wind up and go!  All 3 sets had an Ontario Motor Speedway theme.

First up: the Big “O” Race Set.

Here’s my video of the 1971 Sizzlers track sets:

In subsequent years, no Sizzlers tracks proved to be faster than the 1971 sets.

They’re still fast.  Still fun.
