TF is the number prefix found on the base of this group of (6) casting models. It may represent the factory location, but that is not confirmed. Made in Hong Kong, they were available from the 1970s to the 1980s as "Mini Racing Cars". Interestingly the card front for this series shows a Hot Wheels and a Matchbox casting. Later they were known as "Super Racer" but without their TF prefix on their base plates. This later series was found at Pic N Save (grocery) stores in the USA.

Known castings -

TF 301 - Lamborghini P4000
TF 302 - De Tomaso
TF 303 - Chevrolet Astro (Concept)
TF 304 - Lamborghini Marzal
TF 305 - Carabo Bertone
TF 306 - Abarth 2000
