London, 4th April 2017
Mickey Mouse’s new Roadster Racer from the brand new animated series, Mickey and the Roadster Racers, on Disney Junior and DisneyLife will take pride of place at The Confused.com London Motor Show.
Mickey’s roadster, ‘The Hot Doggin Hot Rod’, with a design which pays tribute to Mickey’s iconic ears, has been spotted at various locations across the capital in recent weeks and will now head to Battersea Evolution from 4-7 May to serve as a treat for families.
Created by a specialist team of eight engineers and experts, the model car took over 12 weeks to build and was commissioned to celebrate the launch of Disney Junior’s new animated children’s series.
Mickey and The Roadster Racers sees Mickey and pals – Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto – racing across the globe on action-packed adventures, including a dash across London to stop a crown jewel thief.
In a special London themed Mickey and The Roadster Racers episode due to air on Disney Junior and DisneyLife in May, Mickey and the gang attempt to track down a thief who has stolen the crown jewels, before returning them to the Queen.
The Roadster Racer model measures 2.4 metres in length, and features a ‘28’ on the side, which represents the year in which Mickey Mouse first appeared onscreen in Steamboat Willie in 1928, 90 years ago next year.
Alec Mumford, Chairman of The Confused.com London Motor Show, added: “We may have over 130 brand new cars on show at our eagerly anticipated event, and this may well be the most special and unique of the lot! Mickey’s new car has been wowing people around London recently and it will certainly be enjoyed by families at Battersea Park. We’re looking forward to welcoming it to the show.”
