Sporting Bear's 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!

The one thing guaranteed to be in the Sporting Bears' Dream Rides Garage is a rare find, and this year's event will have a Land Rover DefenderV8 Works form JLR Classics. This car is based on a late model Defender but is heavily modified by the experts at JLR including the fitting of a supercharged V8 engine, totally modified suspension and many detailed touches. It is a Defender, but not as you know it.

As usual, they will have a range of vehicles for all tastes, from an Austin 7 to the latest Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. If you like the wind in your hair try a Caterham 7 or the Ariel Nomad. Alternatively or you may fancy a Mark 2 Jaguar or a Maserati.
