Roary races to AECC with le­gends in tow

Evening Express (City Final) - The Guide - - ARTS AND STAGE -

BOYS and girls, start your en­gines and get ready for the fast lane – Roary The Rac­ing Car zooms into Aberdeen this week­end. Cham­pion Of Cham­pi­ons, the stage ver­sion of the hugely pop­u­lar pre-school TV se­ries, will be off to a rac­ing start at the P&J Arena at the AECC on Satur­day. As well as Roary and his many love­able four-wheeled friends, the show will fea­ture rac­ing le­gend Sir Stir­ling Moss as the nar­ra­tor, with the much-loved voice of mo­tor­sport’s Mur­ray Walker pro­vid­ing com­men­tary. Mur­ray, pic­tured, said: “This is the first time that some of the char­ac­ters will make a pub­lic ap­pear­ance. “I am de­lighted to be part of this new stage show. “It is a lot of fun for all the fam­ily. “Any­thing can hap­pen in Roary The Rac­ing Car – and usu­ally does.” The plot re­volves around Roary bat­tling it out with Maxi, Cici and all the other cars to win the big race. And Farmer Green has come up with some new bio-fuel to make sure the big event is the fastest and green­est ever. But, as al­ways, things don’t run smoothly – on the race­track or off. Since first hit­ting the TV in 2007, Roary has be­come a firm favourite with lit­tle ones. But it’s not just about in­tro­duc­ing kids to mo­tor­sports – the show also aims to teach the im­por­tance of friend­ship, team­work, prob­lem solv­ing and road safety.
