We have searched for planetary transits in Carina where the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE) found many transits. The data that we analyzed were taken with the ESO VLT/VIMOS instrument for 4 continuous nights in 2005. We have detected several new transiting events. We recommend some of them for spectroscopic follow-up. For seven OGLE transits we present light curves. Our search also led us to discover hundreds of new variable stars.
