Sporting Bears Dream Rides Garage

The Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery, is always thrilled to work with Sporting Bears Dream Rides Garage. What better way is there to raise money for charity than by taking a ten-mile passenger ride in the car of your dreams? 

'Dream Rides', run by charity organisation The Sporting Bears Motor Club, offers visitors the opportunity to jump into and experience some of the most spectacular cars in the world, and all you have to do is donate to a wonderful cause. In exchange for a charitable donation, you can pick from the cars in the 'Dream Rides' garage which car you would like to take a ten-mile passenger ride in - the size of the donation depends on the car you choose. 

It wouldn't be possible without the tireless work of the Sporting Bears Motor Club who performs a huge amount of passenger rides each day, at the three-day event. They are a group of classic car enthusiasts that raise money for children's charities across the nation, through their own touring and social events. Each member gives their time, car and fuel for free so every penny raised goes to their nominated charities. There is s Dream Ride for everyone!

Several of the cars available have been the subject of restorations, in keeping with the show. For example, the Rover P6, or the Camaro Z28. In addition, there will be representatives of the Corvette and a 1967 fastback Mustang.

British classics are well represented ranging from an Austin 7, through to MGs, TVRs, Triumph Stag and Lotus models. Take an exhilarating ride in a 1970 Lotus Europa, a Lotus Esprit S1 (for James Bond fans) or the latest Lotus Exige V6.

Aston Martins will also be in attendance with the latest Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, a DB11 and a Vantage. And a classic car show would not be complete without Jaguar. Ranging from the SS100 and the Mark II through to E-Types and the XKR, there’s something to excite everyone!
Fancy a ride in something a little more intercontinental? Then there are several interesting cars from Porsche, Audi and BMW. Not forgetting the luscious Lancia Integrale, Ferrari and Maserati on standby for you.
And finally a classic convertible VW Beetle is available to take you back in time if that is what you desire. If not, how about a Beach Buggy?

To book your ride simply head to the Sporting Bears Dream Rides Garage to choose your car, make your donation and ride!

Sporting Bears
Founded in 1989 by Chris Glasbey, the Sporting Bears have now raised just short of £2.5 million for children’s charities. Your support at this show might help them reach that milestone.
This year’s charities are Me and Dee, the Buddy Bag Foundation and Sherbourne Fields Special School. Find out more about these charities at the Sporting Bears stand.
So get yourself over to the garage where your dream ride awaits. 10-mile passenger rides will be available on all three days of the show. The size of the minimum donation depends on the cars you choose.
