SPORTING BEARS MOTOR CLUB
JUDGES SPECIAL RECOGNITION AWARD
There was no shortlist process for this category, but the judges were looking for a classic club that goes above and beyond with its charitable work. Sporting Bears’ efforts to raise more than £1.5 million for childrens’ charities since its foundation in 1989 made it a worthy winner. The club has more than 1000 active members and regularly stages its ‘Dream Rides’ attraction at classic events across the UK – including at this year’s show – where classic owners give up their free time and fuel to give car nuts unforgettable passenger rides. At the same time the club’s able to raise funds – its next outings include the Donington Historic Festival later this month.
