Sporting Bears Motor Club

The “Bears” as we are affectionately know are a group of enthusiasts whose primary aim is to use their cars to have fun and raise money for UK children’s charities through our Dream Rides, touring and social events.


Since the club was founded in 1989 it has raised £2.5 million and now raises over £200,000 each year. These funds are raised at over 50 events held each year all over the UK, from small village fates to huge events like CarFest and the NEC classic car shows, where we provide our famous Dream Rides.


Dream Rides is a unique and exciting experience where in return for a minimum donation to UK children’s charities you get to choose a car from our cool wall and we take you out for a ten mile/20 minute passenger ride in the car of your dreams. With over 1,000 members in the club we have a car to cater for every taste whether it be classic, sports or supercars.


We are very proud that the club is run by the generosity of its members who freely give their time, fuel, and maintenance of their cars to ensure that 100% of your donation goes to the children’s charities we support.

By providing product support to Sporting Bears Motor Club via the Zirconite Aftercare range of products developed by Concept Chemicals Ltd, ZirconiteUK are trying to help Sporting Bears in a turbulent time due to Covid 19.

In 2020, due to the Covid19 crisis and social distancing restrictions Sporting Bears haven't been unable to carry out their Dream Rides or usual fundraising activities. This means that the UK children's charities they support have suffered greatly without the much needed funds Sporting Bears raise for them. As such we would greatly appreciate any support you can give however small, to help support UK children less fortunate than our own.
