The latest 2.4 GHz WIRELESS+ technology and exclusive reproduction licenses promise a new dimension of slotcar racing

Zoom to the front down the long straights in the Audi R18 in the high-speed trance of the Le Mans 24-hour race; beat off two other rivals in a Red Bull, Ferrari or McLaren Mercedes – or conquer the circuit as a real superhero. Carrera has all this in store for 2012. Exclusive worldwide licensing agreements with Ferrari for the slotcar segment, an exclusive worldwide licensing partnership with Red Bull, top international licenses to produce Marvel’s Spiderman and Disney/Pixar ‘Cars’, and their brand new, revolutionary 2.4 GHz WIRELESS+ technology have all enabled Carrera to provide a giant dose of home-based racing action for motor racing fans of all ages all over the world.

DIGITAL 124
The ultimate slotcar racing division: DIGITAL 124 stands for uncompromising high-speed action, fantastic 1:24 scale drives and unbeatable driving and controlling ease. ‘Classic Speed’ is the name of the new set in which the Ford GT40 Mk. II ‘No.2’ 1966 goes head-to-head with a Porsche 917K J. W. Automotive Engineering ‘No.2’, Daytona 24h from 1971. As well as these two hunks and the 9.3 metre track the set also offers accessories that use brand new WIRELESS+ technology. The 2.4 GHz radio signal system opens up a completely new sensation of gaming freedom due to the wireless handset and control unit.
‘Ultimate Race’ is the second new set in the Carrera DIGITAL 124 range featuring two genuine long distance specialists, the Porsche GT3 RSR Team Falken and the Audi R8 LMS Audi Sport Team WRT, and imports authentic motor racing excitement into homes everywhere on an 8 metre Carrera circuit.

DIGITAL 132
The Carrera DIGITAL 132 ‘World F1 Champs’ set continues the three-way battle for the Formula 1 supremacy in bedrooms, basements and living rooms with a precise, authentically detailed replica of the Red Bull RB7 ‘Sebastian Vettel, No.1’ Formula 1 racing car – with the reigning two-time world champion, Sebastian Vettel, at the wheel. The man from Heppenheim has to defend his title against a fierce rival, Fernando Alonso, in his Ferrari 150° Italia ‘Fernando Alonso, No.5’, and against the Vodafone McLaren Race Car 2011 ‘No.3’.
No less powerful is the content of the Carrera DIGITAL 132 ‘Long Race’ set, which pits the Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 Hankook Team Farnbacher ‘No.123’ 2011 against another blue-blooded long distance specialist in the shape of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 Horn Motorsport ‘No.32’ VLN 2011.
The star-studded list of 132 participants has been completed with last year’s shooting star as the ‘Porto Corsa Cup’ set again invites the blockbusting Disney/Pixar ‘Cars’ stars to return to the Carrera racing circuit. Max Schnell has to beat off the challenges of two box office celebrities, Lightning McQueen and Francesco Bernoulli.
Both the ‘Long Race’ and ‘Porto Corsa Cup’ sets offer the latest generation of wireless racing fun as they feature a special control unit and the new 2.4 GHz WIRELESS+ technology.
