Bringing motor racing within the reach of modest budgets, midget car meetings were a popular attraction on British speedway dirt tracks in the 1930s. Although a short-lived craze, in its heyday some events attracted over 60,000 people. This chronicle of an all but forgotten branch of British motorsport focuses on Manchester's Belle Vue Speedway and includes period photographs of the cars and drivers and contemporary publicity material.
