Sporting Bears' Dream Rides

A passenger ride in the car of your dreams

Over the weekend of The Classic, visitors could enjoy a passenger ride in a beautiful classic car (kindly brought to the event by its owner) in exchange for a charity donation – the donation amount depended on the level of “coolness” of the car!

The Sporting Bears Motor Club has been attending The Classic for many years, but this was the first time they brought Dream Rides as a feature to the event. There were a total of thirty cars to choose from including Jaguar E-types, AC Cobras, a Metro 6R4 and an exquisite 1965 Ferrari 330 GT once owned by John Surtees right up to more modern exotica including an Ariel Atom, Caterham Supersport, Aston Martin Vanquish Volante, McLaren 650 Spyder and Porsche 911 GT3.

Each Dream Ride took a 10-12 mile scenic route on the roads around Silverstone between 11am and 6pm. Bookings could be made on the day and were open to all aged six and over (there was also a minimum height restriction in some cars). 

Sporting Bears' Dream Rides were the popular recipient of the Mervyn Garton Scarf & Goggles Award for Best Off-Track Visitor Attraction over the weekend.

Updates regarding the 2021 event will follow soon!
