Carrera: 50 Years on Track

Rating
Carrera: 50 Years on Track is published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Carrera, a slot car brand introduced in the early 1960s by Josef Neuhierl GmbH & Co. The name Carrera was inspired by the Porsche Carrera models which took their name from the Carrera Panamericana road race. Used in the competitive hobby of slot car racing, these are miniature cars, all scale models, that run along grooves or slots in tracks with a pin or blade extending from the bottom of the car into the slot. The cars are operated using hand-held control sets. In 2006 Carrera held its first Carrera World Championship; this race is now held every other year. The Carrera cars are now available in more than forty countries around the world, and has become the world's leading manufacturer for racetracks and accessories. This is the first book to be published on the subject, with many as yet unseen images about this fascinating hobby. Carrera shows the complete history of the Carrera track, including steep curves and loopings, representing current models and absorbing biopics of their owners since 1963.
