also a pack of extra racers for 2.24, good price
no, i thought that too, but those extra racers are a separate toy entirely - they're pull back cars.
this is about £40 in toys r us
Amazing, been after a set for ages thanks OP! Glad I got one before the ebay scalpers move in
This is a fab price. I was one of the lucky ones who ordered for £6 from tesco but I would happily pay this for it!
Thanks op
hotter than a fireball!

Thanks so much for posting OP - my son saw this in home bargains and loved it (not sure if a cheaper version or the same?) the other day for £39.99. Couldn't justify at that price - can now!! Heat added xxx

There's a scalper, knew it wouldn't take long oO

Be aware this a dreadful set, its very cheap and other than the 2 karts there is zero Mario Kart theme to it. Is really just generic scaletrix tat. The cars frustratingly don't stay on the track and the play value is very low. Look up any deal thread in recent months on this type of set for these same comments from others. Kids lose interest after 1 hr and it never gets used again. I have this exact set in the garage. Takes up your whole living room to.

Your far better investing in the large scale RC themed Bowser/Mario/Luigi/Toad Karts, also made by Carrera. They are high quality and can be used outdoors, and generally more fun! (see Smyths website for these)

I take it your new to scalping? Good luck with that. This item is already flooded on ebay with loads of sellers looking for £24 - £30. Is easily picked up at these prices, and ebay will be flooded even more with this item from scalpers looking for a quick buck. The supply is high and the demand is low on this, its not really a desired product, and people only buy it when its cheap.

So instead of spending £14 you spent £56 to save yourself £2 click and collect or £3.50 postage. Hahaha! oO

This encapsulates everything i hate about hukd...hate this carry on...
I have one of these for the kids, takes around 30mins to set up 10 mins for them to get bored and 2 mins to take apart. Hard for little ones to keep them on the track and need a lot of space to keep up all the time.
for £14 its worth a punt i reckon

I wouldn't lose too much sleep on missing out on this deal. I posted the twin pack of Carrera pull back MK cars on offer @ John Lewis a couple of days ago, but I refused to post this set as just don't rate it as any value for money, even at deal price.
OOS but good buy thanks OP
Not bad really

I second this we brought it for our kids at Christmas its absolute garbage managed to play wit it for a few hours then its gone up the loft. The barriers to stop the cars coming off the road dont connect right, the elevation parts to prop up the fly over part keep falling down, the cars stop all the time and the road pieces kept disconnecting.

Honestly anyone considering buying this please dont its absolute rubbish.

Thank you for this, was tempted, but thought it was bound to end up with the other scalectrix toys in the loft. You've confirmed that for me.
what a bargain well done on spotting it I missed it but well done to anyone who hot it
