Mite Cars had their beginning in the late 1930’s but did not reach its peak until the decade following WWII. A few years after the end of the war, a number of small toy race cars were being produced and hobbists started powering them with model engine’s equipped with glow plugs.
As speed increased, purpose built racing MITE were built specifically for competitive racing. While most MITE cars raced on circular tither tracks a small number were built for racing on high banked oval shaped rail tracks.
