Big, Fat bunch of ARSE!!

I was looking forward to Carrera's version of a Murcielago - Oh well, just Proteus and Auto Art to get then


Thomas, a question if I may? Do Carrera manufacture spares and if so any reason why the UK distributors & shops don't have them? (Spare bodyshells in particular!)

Thanks,

Mark.

Who says UK shops don't stock Carrera spares?

We have a growing range of Carrera spares in stock including axles, tyres, motors, guides, braids, magnets and accessory bags.

We will have the rest of the spares range in stock once they are available in the UK, which hopefully will be soon.

We've asked if we can get the body shells as well and are waiting on a response.

Carrera spares can be found on our website here. No pictures at the moment, but we will hopefully have these available soon.

Thanks,

It's good to hear that, Jon.

While USA was being sorted out gradually, Carrera distribution in the UK has been a bit 'spotty' until recently. I hope this is a sign of better things to come, because Carrera have quite a lot going for them and deserve to be better known.

there certainly will be a lot of mercedes around from many manufacturers this year...

I know you are busy Thomas, and found that info surfing maybe but could you use your inside contacts to find out why the cancellations ? Maybe someone else got there first ? I HATE that they dropped the 512BB - you know how excited I was when we saw them advertised in Nürnberg

Walked into NEXT (Leading UK clothes retailer) the other week. Guess what? Carrera 1:43 slot car sets for sale! The same Carrera set was also for sale in Wilkinsons (Leading UK house ware retailer) before Christmas.

The James Bond 1:43 Go sets are appearing in various places that you would not normally expect slot cars to appear. The Goldfinger set may well spring a few surprises also.

If you think slot car fans have got it bad in terms of release dates then become a model railway enthusiast!


Slot car fans on the whole do not have too much to complain about on that score (Fly fans excepted possibly?).

Recently some cars (and bikes) and been released ahead of schedule.

And we are not just talking Hornby here (although we are with the bikes
).

Would you wait 4 years for a release?

We have the UK release dates for all Carrera cars listed on our website (in the individual product descriptions).

The Ferrari 575's are currnetly scheduled for September / October.

I remember that there was a time when I believed in Father Christmas…

The Carrera cars which were announced for May/June haven't been released yet and I've heard that the two Maserati MC12 and the Mercedes DTM cars will not be released this year!

But I'm sure that the Ferraris 575 GTC will be there for Christmas.
