The Special Olympics Soar & Roar Festival is a FULL THROTTLE ACCELEBRATION.
It is an unique event providing people with an intellectual disability the opportunity to experience the thrill of a Dream Ride in a luxury car.
On Sunday 9 December 2018, luxury car brands and motorbikes from around NSW will make their way to Sydney Motorsport Park to celebrate Special Olympics Australia Athletes, their families, support networks and importantly to raise much needed funds.
Money is raised through donations from participating motorcar drivers, motorbike participants and event attendees, with 100% of the funds raised going towards Special Olympics Australia so that they can continue to create an arena for athletes to exercise, have fun and make life-long friends.
