I am not sure what date the range ceased production but it was about 1967/8. It was rumoured that when Lines Bros. took a controlling share of Wrenn in 1966 a deal was done to cease the production of the formula 152 range, (which after all was in competition with Lines Bros. Scalextric range) in exchange for the old Hornby Dublo tools and the re-introduction of the range under the Wrenn brand.
