‘Charity Race Experience’ is an initiative set up to raise vital funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), a fantastic cause providing free accommodation in, or close to, hospitals and hospices throughout the UK giving families of seriously ill children a place to stay so that families can remain together during treatment.

For a small fee visitors can buy a passenger lap in a selection of 120 classic, track and supercars including the Exige S driven by our very own Darren Cockle.

There will be over 350 car exhibits from local and national car clubs, a lunchtime air display led by the Wildcat Aerobatics team and the chance of being a trucker in one of 11 of the East Coast Truckers articulated lorries.

The Charity Race Experience is organised by three Norwich businessmen Kevin Foley, owner of two McDonald’s franchises in the city, Devin Grosse, general manger of Holiday Inn Norwich-North and Shawn Taylor from ST Racing.  All proceeds from the event are donated to the RMHC.  

The Charity Race Day 2012 takes place on Sunday 18 November at Snetterton Race Circuit, Norfolk.  Entry is £5 per vehicle. Prices for passenger rides are £10 for classic cars, race cars from £20 and supercar runs from £60 and are all available on the day. Gates open 9am – 4pm.
