Our Day at the TSR Motorshow at Leicester Race Course
So, we got asked if we would like to attend the TSR Motorshow at Leicester Race Course on 14th August.
It was a bit of a last minute thing, but we couldn't resist the opportunity to check out some of the best classic and performance cars in the country and also display our modest kids ride-ons.
The show was for a good cause, supporting Shivam Nathwani, a 24-year-old with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a muscle wasting disease.
Despite having a tracheotomy and specialised breathing equipment, he was able to pursue his passions during this 2020 lockdown and follow his motor business journey.
The day started off early by loading our cars in the back of our van.
Thankfully, Leicester Race Course isn't that far from our showroom in Corby and it only took us 45mins door to race course.
I'm not going to lie. When we got there, it was a little overwhelming. There were already lots of stalls, super cars, classic cars and vintage motorbikes set up and gleaming in the sun.
Oh, did I mention sun. We knew it was going to be a hot one, so Vatan (one of the directors here at RiiRoo) made sure we were fully stocked up on sun cream, water and snacks.
We managed to find a spot to set up our gazebo and tables and began the process of unloading all of our stock.
As we were setting up, more and more people started to filter into the race course. It was great to see so many people coming out to support the event and also great to see so many classic cars.
We had a few people come over and ask us about our cars before the event had even started. It was great!!
We laid our cars out in a neat semi-circle and inserted a small info sheet of each car including specs, prices and a QR link to our website.
To be honest, we weren't there to sell cars. We just wanted people to see what we had on offer and maybe come back to us at a later date.
Cue The Madness
The event started at 10am and it was non-stop chaos from there. We had a constant stream of people coming over to our stand, asking questions, taking photos and generally just enjoying themselves.
You know what it's like, as soon as kids see other kids playing and having fun, they just have to be a part of it.
So, we ended up giving a lot of free rides which the kids (and their parents) loved.
At one point we had 15 cars zooming around, parents taking photos, kids drifting in BMW M5 (which looked amazing, btw), it was actually quite hard to keep track of them all. It was crazy.
There were so many people at the event that it was difficult to move around and see everything, but we did manage to get a few snaps of some of the other cars on display.
What Cars Did We Take to the Show?
We took a total of 18 cars to the event. Our fleet included:
Check out this dream 12V Battery Electric Mercedes Benz Classic 300S 2WD ride on car with remote control. All the luxury of a car good enough for royalty. This car has a beautiful finish, it’s one of the most beautifully crafted models we’ve ever had. They don’t make them like this anymore.
This is a fully licensed official replica and covered in Mercedes branding. It has unreal attention to detail including the classic and official Mercedes emblem on the front hood and comes with working safety belt and lights.
BMW 507 Classic
BMW has been at the forefront of absolutely exquisite cars but only those that are true diehards will know of the iconic BMW 507 and its significance in history.
We have been huge fans for years and we are proud to announce that RiiRoo is the only retailer who has their hands on it!
This is a limited run product so hurry, we don't have regular deliveries of this incredible ride on.
2020 McLaren 720S
McLaren is a name that has been around for a while now but not many kids ride-on's out there, that is until today! Introducing the McLaren 720S Kids Electric Ride on Car.
With its 12V powerful battery combined with dual motors at the rear this little Ride on Car is worthy of the McLaren name!
Bentley Mulsanne 12V
If you are looking for one of the best luxury kids cars on the market then you need to check out our Bentley Mulsanne 12V Battery Electric Ride On Car.
The Bentley Mulsanne is one of the most fashionable and well-known automobiles in the world. From 2010, this was a full-size luxury vehicle from Bentley that was made exclusively for the rich and famous.
The car's name refers to the Mulsanne Straight on the Le Mans race circuit, where Bentley vehicles have won six times in the 24-hour endurance event.
Now, this is something you will not find anywhere else and just like the real thing, you will not find this at many retailers. In fact, we’d say if you are after a Licensed Bugatti Divo 12V Battery Electric ride on car, RiiRoo is your best bet.
This 2020 Lamborghini Urus kids ride on car is one of the world’s fastest SUVs. The Lamborghini Urus is what happens when the maker of the planet’s most outlandish supercars turns its hand to a large five-door family car with proper ground clearance and off-road ability.
Now your kids can have their own ride-on luxury sports car complete with personalised number plate. In fact, they’ll really get into character every time they get behind the wheel
The best looking (at least in our opinion) our Kids Lamborghini Veneno Licensed 2 Seater Battery Electric Ride On Car is finally available for purchase from RiiRoo!
This is a limited production high performance beast of a car that was developed to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th Anniversary.
It’s actually based off our popular Lamborghini Aventador and is considered to be one of the most expensive production cars in the world.
If you’re looking for a real head-turner, then you really need to check out our latest Lamborghini Huracan Performante Ride-on Car exclusive model which comes with many upgraded features.
Just wait until your child gets behind the wheel of this beauty. The fact that the styling and body shape is the exact same replica of the real thing means your child really can imagine themselves cruising down the street as if they’ve already passed their test.
The Audi R8 New Model 2020 kid's ride-on car will be a dream come true for the mini-me in your life!
With their first key in hand, kids are spoiled for choice between this and the Audi TT RS which is its older brother.
The TT RS has been our best seller for a number of years, but we’re afraid the R8 is about to steal its thunder.
Kids love pretending they're speeding along, mastering turns, outsmarting other drivers, while the car makes all sorts of engine sounds as they drive.
Audi Horch 930V
If you're looking for both style and grace, then feast your eyes on our kid's Audi Horch 930V battery electric. This vehicle is the epitome of class and will have your little ones arriving at their events in high style.

Hotchkiss Willys Jeep Style
When no other vehicle has the brut force and toughness to get the job done, you need an electric ride-on that's built like a Jeep. The Kids 24V Battery Electric Hotchkiss Willys Jeep Style is just such a machine. It comes packed with plenty of features to keep kids entertained for hours on end.
The Kids Electric Hotchkiss Willys Jeep Style is modeled after the classic Jeep design. It has a tough and rugged exterior that can handle any terrain. The jeep also comes equipped with working headlights and taillights. The doors open and close just like a real jeep.
As that special day fast approaches, what present do you choose? It’s a question thousands of RiiRoo customers have thought about just like you are now.
If that’s the case, why not consider our fully Licensed 12V Battery Electric Mercedes C63 AMG.
Now your kids can enjoy the thrill of driving their own BMW M5 Kids Ride On Car, just like mom and dad! It's a unique addition to our line up that will be a new favorite among our customers as well!
Like the other licensed models we offer, the M5 has all of the styling, stickers, and badges attributed to other BMWs models.
When the BMW M5 Kids Ride On Car showed up, we knew it was something special and had to have more. As a result, we bought as many as we could while they were still available.

Lamborghini Vision Gran Turismo
The Lamborghini Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo, which was revealed during the Gran Turismo Championship World Finals in Monaco and is known as the Lambo V12, is simply poetry in motion.
Lambos have always been a keen favourite among kids, and this one surely won't disappoint.
RiiRoo SuperSport XL
Since our 1 seater version of this car sold so well, we thought we would stock the 2 seater version for you. Check out our latest RiiRoo Super Sport XL 24V 2 Seater Ride On Car in cherry red, hot pink or painted grey. Please note, pictures are for illustration purposes only and shades may vary.

Doing The Charitable Thing
During the course of the day we had so much interest in our Mercedes Actros Truck and Trailer, we decided to donate it to a good cause.
We made good friends with South Leicester Community First Responders, who are a team of local volunteers that provide emergency medical cover in South Leicester.
They do an amazing job and we were more than happy to donate our truck and trailer to them, so they can use it to help promote their cause and raise awareness of their work.
A Great Day Out
All in all, it was a great day out. We got to show off our cars, meet new people and do our bit for charity.
We're already looking forward to next year's event!
