With Carrera’s new Digital 132 technology, up to six vehicles can overtake each other at high speeds. A pace car function lets pilots race against a remotely driven car that completes laps at a pre-programmed speed by itself. However, the real value is that all Carrera Digital 132 vehicles can be used on both our digital and analogue racetracks. Carrera Digital 132 is the first system to combine the world of traditional analogue racetracks with the fascinating opportunities of the digital era.
