TCR (Total Control Racing) was a popular brand from the Ideal toy company in the late 1970s up to the mid 1980s. TCR used small ‘Matchbox’ scale racing vehicles on a slotless track. Vehicle sets included Formula 1, Super Trucks, vans, and a cool The Dukes of Hazzard set plus others. Often there was a ‘drone’ vehicle included in sets known as a ‘jam vehicle’ which served as an obstacle for the racing vehicles to overtake.
