Covering nearly a century of toy production, the exhibition features more than 240 pieces ranging from the famous tin and iron racing cars and motorbikes to the popular slot tracks that recreated the world’s great racing circuits, as well as a core dedicated to Portuguese toys linked to the theme of automobile competition.

The exhibition “The races of yesterday” also includes some curious pieces associated with speed that were successful in its time, such as the set of acrobatic jumps on motorbikes by Evel Knievel, the world record holder for broken bones.

Be it Formula 1, Indianapolis, Le Mans, rallies or simply speed record holders, all forms of competition are represented in this exhibition that includes toy brands from around the world.

Opened at the Museu do Caramulo until October 25, 2020, the exhibition “As das yesterday” is supported by the City Council of Tondela, Regresso ao Passado, Fidelidade, Jornal dos Classicos and Banco BPI | La Caixa Foundation.
