Sporting Bears and Donington Park give kids a reason to smile - 19 Sep 2019

Around 100 youngsters with life limiting illnesses were given a reason to smile at Donington Park today (19 September), after being taken for 'Dream Rides' in classic and sports cars.

A number of children's hospices and charities were invited to bring families along to the East Midlands motorsport venue by the Sporting Bears Motor Club, with youngsters able to enjoy rides around a specially designed circuit.

Sporting Bears members brought along Ferraris, Aston Martins, Porsches and many other exotic machines, to put a smile on the faces of the youngsters and create memories for families.

The children were able to pick and choose which cars to ride in, and many enjoyed multiple laps of the course around the Heritage Loop and Tarmac Lake area of the venue.

Alan Moss, Midlands Regional Organiser of the Sporting Bears Motor Club commented: "We are always looking to put smiles on the faces of children who are going through impossibly tough times with illness or other life limiting conditions.

"A ride in a sports car is always guaranteed to get people smiling, and hopefully today we've been able to provide some lovely memories for all involved. This day would not have been possible without the support of MotorSport Vision and Donington Park, and we're extremely grateful for their assistance."
