In course of all the history, the whole series of interesting vehicles have been produced in what is now the Czech Republic (some of them unique for their time in terms of design and technologies) and naturally also a lot of racing cars have been created. It is this legacy that FARO models are based upon. Primarily, we focus on Czech racing cars on a scale 1:32. Our models stick to the design of a real vehicle and so the location of the engine and the type of drive correspond to those of a real car. This approach makes it possible to preserve the typical handling performance of each automobile, such as oversteering in rear-engine RWD cars. This way a model becomes a piece of sports equipment while retaining its high quality to meet the requirements of collectors.
With a width of 180mm, FARO tracks belong to the world's widest home circuits. The hand controller with an electric brake as well as the applied transformers have been designed to provide long service-life and good performance and all that at very favourable prices. The distinctive feature of our track is its modularity. Our customer can choose a totally customized track in line with their demand in terms of space and budget; their choice is not limited to only a few sets. Our tracks design is unique; however, all FARO cars can also be used on other tracks from the world's leading track producers.

History of the Czech tracks began in 1968 when the production of a 74mm-pitch track was started under the brand ITES. In the early 1970s, the pitch was increased to 90mm and the brand name EUROPA CUP was adopted. The packaging still bore the name of the production plant GONIO and also the names of sets based upon models included e.g. Tyrrell, Shadow, Porsche. At the end of the 80s and the beginning of the 90s, the labels JUNIOR, FORMULA as well as Autodráha 90 were used. In 1994, a finer surface was applied to the track allowing better adhesion.
Since 2000 when the production was handed over to the company Model based in Plzeň (Pilsen), the track has been marketed under the name FARO. Track FARO is therefore a direct successor to the Czech tracks that allows a smooth use of older parts with a slot pitch of 90mm and also an attachment to a 74mm-pitch track by means of extension kits. Thus, FARO track line of products makes it possible to repair, complement or expand any original Czech circuit that you may possess.
