THE stars of the Five and Nick Jr’s hit pre-school TV show Roary the Racing Car® will be joining the drivers of the Lloyds TSB Insurance British F3 International Series and the Avon Tyres British GT Championship at Brands Hatch on Sunday, July 15.
Roary and Big Chris will be making a special appearance during the event, with children of all ages able to have their photo taken with the characters and take part in a special treasure hunt, which will be a fun way to provide information about the different aspects of motorsport. They can also watch an episode of the show on the venue’s big screen.
With narration by racing legend Sir Stirling Moss and the vocal talents of Peter Kay as Big Chris, the stop frame animation series Roary the Racing Car has quickly become a big hit on Five’s Milkshake! and Nick Jr.
SRO Partnership Manager Mike Grime said: "SRO has been a strong supporter of Roary from concept to reality, and is delighted to finally welcome the new star driver/team line-up of Roary and Big Chris to the British F3/GT paddock.
"Roary is a refreshing take on making motorsport entertaining and educational to young children. It’s also a superb way of appealing to the next generation of motorsport fans."
Tickets for the F3 event are £20 on the gate, £15 in advance. Entry is free for children under 12 (except grandstand seating, which is £7). Box office 0870 950 9000.
