Taking place at Snetterton Circuit, Norfolk on Sunday 17th November, the Charity Motor Show – raising money for local charities, the East Anglian Air Ambulance, Big C and East Anglia Children’s Hospices, as well as national charity The British Heart Foundation – was a fantastic day out for visitors of all ages.


For the second year running, the event – sponsored by Adrian Flux – attracted a bumper haul of over 100 willing drivers and equally willing, and impressive, cars. The variety of cars ranged from rally-spec Ford Fiestas and Renault Clios, right up to Ferraris and Aston Martins via enormous DAF and Scania trucks. With prices ranging from £15 – £70, for 3 laps around the Snetterton Circuit with an accomplished driver, there really was something for all budgets and tastes.

In the lead-up to the event, in conjunction with the guys at STR Charity Sporting Events, Adrian Flux ran a competition for one of our Facebook followers to win a voucher, entitling them to a ‘Top Class Car Passenger Ride’. The lucky winner of the competition was Claire, and she was kind enough to share a few pictures of her day with us.

Even Rodney and Del Boy managed to get over to Snetterton for the day.

Using her competition prize, and adding a bit more to the charity pot, Claire had arranged for her eldest son to be a passenger in the awesome Lotus Elise convertible (above) and for her husband to get a spin in the phenomenal Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale (below left).

As you can see, the Ferrari certainly got it's fair share of attention, from young and old.

The day was clearly a hit with Claire’s family, thanking both Adrian Flux and STR Charity Sporting Events for a ‘fab day’.

The total raised for the charities is currently being calculated and will shortly be announced over on but, regardless of the huge sum raised for such worthy causes, all of the attendees – ourselves included – had a fantastic day and many – ourselves included – are sure to be back next year. Thanks, STR Charity Sporting Events!
