New world of adventure in Salzburgerland - Carrera WORLD in Puch

Carrera has been a byword for fast duels and racing fun for the whole family for generations. No wonder, the name Carrera also means RACING in Spanish and this name does credit to the world-famous Carrera brand! The Carrera headquarters are located here in Puch and we at the Puch Tourist Association are delighted that Carrera WORLD, a new world of adventure, has been open in the SalzburgerLand since 23.9.2022. I was there for you with my children, tested the facilities and am happy to show you the highlights of the new 900m² world of adventure in Puch!

Carrera WORLD for high-speed fans

A dream come true for all motor racing fans in Salzburg! The first glance into the 900 m² hall of Carrera WORLD reveals many slots, several tracks with loops, cosy seating and, in the background, the shop full of Carrera products that you would love to take home with you.

The three large, fast-paced DIGITAL 132 car racetracks are waiting with different track layouts and impressive decorations for up to 6 big and small racers aged 8 and over to go full throttle at the same time. Smaller tracks on the Carrera GO!!! racetrack for children aged 6 and over and the Carrera FIRST play track for younger siblings aged 3 and over invite them to exciting adventures. Together with the course for remote-controlled vehicles, the large selection ensures fun for the whole family.

The track planning and construction was all done by in-house staff. The colourful accents on the tracks were created by the Adnet Airbrusher Daniel Hirscher and the graffiti artist Tamara Volgger from Oberalm and give the hall and the race tracks that certain something extra.

The shop at Carrera WORLD

If you"re going to do your rounds in the world of adventure, you have to take a look at the shop. The children in particular were very excited about the range of products on offer. In keeping with the coming Christmas season, we have already discovered a Carrera Advent calendar where you can assemble a small remote-controlled car yourself at the end of Advent.

In the Carrera Shop, fans will find everything their racing heart desires. Cool Carrera car racing tracks and hot RC cars are the perfect souvenir after a day of racing. In addition to the great selection of racing tracks and remote-controlled vehicles, as well as the matching spare parts, many other toys from Revell and PUSTEFIX are also available. A shopper"s paradise for young and old!

What is the difference between the Carrera WORLD racetracks?

But what is the difference between the various race tracks at Carrera WORLD in Puch? Which track should I choose, for a race day with my friends or for a duel with the family? These 3 models are available:

Carrera First

Let"s start with the free Carrera FIRST, which offers driving fun for the youngest from the age of 3. The colourful tracks have an ergonomic hand controller, specially designed for children"s hands and easy handling for beginners. Themed slots and decorative elements, such as the current PAW PATROL track in Carrera WORLD, make the racing experience even more exciting for pre-schoolers.

Carrera GO!!!

For beginners aged 6 and over, the GO!!! analogue racetrack offers a number of highlights such as loops, narrow sections, points and jumps. Two drivers can take part in the race at the same time and the tracks as well as the cars are on a scale of 1:43. For home use, the track is available with various licence themes such as Disney-Pixar Cars, Formula 1 or Nintendo Mario Kart.

Digital 132

The 3 large Digital 132 car racing tracks are between 15 and 25 metres long and offer detailed cars on a scale of 1:32, a real racing feeling with lane changes, driving with lights, individually adjustable speed and, with the extra wide tracks on a scale of 1:24, optimal cornering with sensational drifts and cool slides. Grandstand, crash barriers and tyre stacks provide a real racing feeling. In addition, these tracks can be driven by up to 6 people aged 8 and over at the same time.

Tip: bring your own slots to Carrera WORLD!



Carrera - Motorsport for the home

But what is Carrera anyway? Carrera has been revolutionising the car racing sector for many decades, connecting several generations without age limits. Through close cooperation with the automotive industry, Carrera today offers attractive and true-to-the-original licences from the world of motorsport, such as Formula 1 or the touring car scene. Brands such as Ferrari, Porsche, Audi and BMW also add to the fun of racing at home. What"s more, Carrera is active worldwide and strongly aligns its model policy with international needs.

The history of Carrera - a brief summary

As early as 1920, Josef Neuhierl began manufacturing tin toys in the Franconian town of Fürth and founded the JNF (Josef Neuhierl Fürth) tin toy factory. His son Hermann Neuhierl discovered people"s enthusiasm for car racing tracks on a business trip to America and in 1963 created the "Carrera Universal", the first electrically powered Carrera car racing track on a scale of 1:32.

In the 1970s and 1980s, further development was carried out on Carrera racetracks and after restructuring at the end of the 1990s, the Stadlbauer group of companies from Salzburg took over the company, which opened its administrative headquarters with us in Puch Urstein in 2010. In 2019, Stadlbauer sold to the international investment company Quantum Capital Partners, which had also acquired Revell GmbH (plastic model kits) the previous year, due to strategic prospects for the future. Carrera Toys GmbH was given its new name on 1 January 2021 and will henceforth be part of the Carrera Revell Group. The Stadlbauer family continues to serve on the advisory board.

Carrera WORLD - a meeting place for families and motor sports enthusiasts

Personally, I"m not a big fan of speed and car racing. However, a duel with friends or family at Carrera WORLD is just great fun! And let"s be honest, who doesn"t like winning? The kids also really enjoyed it, had lots to discover and didn"t want to go home. I, above all, am thrilled by the original slots and the miniature world, or have you ever seen the Salzburg Ring from above as a Carrera track?
