It was the key competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.

Racing track set
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold individually). Although it could be upgraded throughout time, the first trail consisted of a series of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or two) “super chargers” (faux service channels through which cars passed onto the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars along the paths).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but in the last 15 years[vague] there has been a rise in the number of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting trend started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s arranged two collectors’ events each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held each year in the fall. The convention occurred in a variety of locations around the country before 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California during the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and worth, which is used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby and their own collection. Strauss sold his group in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
