I​f you go for a walk around Crystal Palace Park today, you'll find Egyptian sphinxes, full-scale dinosaurs and a huge terraced promenade that once was the lead-up to a humungous glass palace.

B​ut hop back in time and the oldest race track on British soil was once here, creating a stage for F1, F2, touring car and sports car racing to take place, with the track coming into its heyday in the 1950s and '60s.

I​ went for a walk to get nerdy about what once existed in this rather cool London green space.
