Sporting Bears return to the BVAC Classic

Sporting Bears return to the BVAC Classic

Show visitors will once again be able to enjoy a memorable passenger ride, in a car of their dreams, while helping to support a good cause at this year’s BVAC Classic on Sunday 2nd June!
The Sporting Bears is a club run entirely by volunteers and has so far successfully raised over £3 million for children’s charities. This year, at the BVAC Classic, the Sporting Bears will be supporting the Harris Trust; a Scottish Borders based charity, focussed on raising awareness and providing training around neurodiversity and mental health.
The Sporting Bears will be offering visitors a chance to enjoy ‘Dream Rides’ in a fabulous variety of classic, sports and super cars. The rides will run throughout the day, departing from the Castle front, where – for a donation to the Harris Trust – you can book a thrilling 10-mile passenger ride in the exotic car of your choice.
The car line up is to be confirmed but usually includes Performance cars such as; Aston Martin, Ariel Atom, Lancia Integrale Evo, KITT Trans Am Nightrider and Ultima Can-Am. While their more relaxed rides are usually available in a Chevrolet Bel-Air, a Rolls-Royce and for fun Messerschmitt Bubble Cars.
Dream Rides are run under normal traffic laws and all the volunteer drivers have given their time, cars and fuel, so that 100% of your donation goes to charity.

The BVAC Classic Festival of Motoring takes place on Sunday 2nd June at Thirlestane Castle, a magnificent 16th century castle and one of the oldest ancestral homes in Scotland, 25miles south of Edinburgh, in Lauder, Scottish Borders.

The show will feature a huge array of attractions to keep the whole family entertained. There will extensive displays of stunning veteran, vintage and classic cars, a live rally stage, children’s play zone and activities, BMX stunt displays, pipe band shows and plenty of wonderful food and drink vendors to keep visitors fuelled throughout the day!
