Our friends from the Sporting Bears Motor Club arrive at CarFest every year to help us raise lots of money by offering their unique Dream Rides experience.
If you've ever wondered what it would be like to find yourself in the passenger seat of your dream car, Sporting Bears offer you the chance to experience a thrilling 10 mile ride, as they drive you out on the roads around CarFest.
Sporting Bears select 7 magnificent cars to offer passengers the opportunity to wave at the CarFest crowds from the track. From the latest in luxury Rolls Royce to the historic power of the Lola T70, you'll be driven on track followed by another 10 miles on the open road.
The Sporting Bears is a car club with a heart – all the club members have pledged to use their wonderful classic, sports and performance cars to support children’s charities. To date at CarFest, Sporting Bears have raised £557,401 for BBC Children in Need with the help of lovely CarFesters who donated generously to experience their own Dream Ride – THANK YOU! This year, Sporting Bears will be supporting each of our UK Children Charity partners; 50% of funds raised will go to BBC Children in Need, whilst our other Charity Partners will receive 10% each.
The Sporting Bears are all volunteers who provide their cars, fuel and time for free taking CarFesters out, with every penny going to charity.
