Dream Rides

Ever dream of yourself gliding along the coastline in a streamlined supercar? Or perhaps speeding through the countryside in a classic British sports car?

Well it’s your lucky day because here at the Classic Motor Show we can make those dreams a reality with the once in a life time ‘Dream Rides’ feature.

‘Dream Rides’, run by  charity organisation the Sporting Bears Motoring Club, offers visitors the opportunity to take a ten mile ride as a passenger in some of the most spectacular cars in the world and all you have to do is donate to a wonderful cause.

Sound too be good to be true?! No, we assure you, there’s no catch!

‘Dream Rides’ passengers will be taken for a trip in a jaw-dropingly beautiful machine and dropped off right back at the NEC, so don’t worry, no long walks back!


‘Dream Rides’ wouldn’t be possible at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show without the tireless work of the Sporting Bears Motoring Club who perform on average 1,000 rides over the three day event.


The Sporting Bears are a group of classic car enthusiasts that raise money for children’s charities across the nation, through their own touring and social events.

The dedication and commitment of the Sporting Bears has seen them raise over £1million in donations from ‘Dream Rides’ so far.

Last year they Supplied 80-100 cars to choose from per day, with a whole selection of marques to tickle your fancy. This really is a brilliant opportunity!

Now no one likes a name dropper but in this case we’re happy to make an exception,  the marques  visitors enjoyed at last year’s show included, Cobras, Ferraris, Maseratis, Porsches, GT40’s, Jags, MG’s, TR’s, Lamborghinis, Aston Martins and for those of a tender age we even had Noddy’s car! 



There is a dream ride for everyone!

Need more convincing?

 Take a look at the photos from last year’s ‘Dream Rides’ event and picture yourself cruising around in the car of your dreams!
