God I used to LOVE this!!!

BIG TRAK was a programmable electric vehicle created by Milton Bradley in 1979. It was a six-wheeled tank with a front-mounted blue photon beam headlamp, and a keypad on top.

Big Trak could remember up to 16 commands which it then executed in sequence (such as “go forward 5 lengths”, “pause”, “turn 30 degrees right”, “fire phaser” and so on. Cool at the time.

I was the odd one out at school because i went for Total Control Racing (TCR) not Scalextric. Rebel eh.
