Carrera slot cars are something that many children in Europe grow up with. And obviously it's about accumulating as many track pieces as possible to make race day exciting. But about 1,800 feet of race track is probably difficult for most children to pile up.

Fortunately, we at Paessler are adult children with a lot of space to stack tracks and cars. So, on a sunny day in June, I called my contact at Carrera and asked if we could get as many track pieces and cars as possible. The goal was to build a Carrera racing paradise, monitored by PRTG, that spanned as much office space as possible and included the most exciting twists, turns, and loops. When we finally had all the parts we needed, it was June. A year later. But who has patience will be rewarded. And boy, were we rewarded.
