Two dads from Surbiton and Bromley have worked together to create a sports car festival showing at Goodwood next month.

Pete Dietsch from Surbiton and Malcom Scopes from Bromley are part of a volunteer committee that runs the Supercar event – a family festival that celebrates some of the worlds most luxurious sports cars.

The Supercar event will be taking place at Goodwood Motor Circuit on Friday, July 22 and Saturday, July 23 and will be raising money to support The Children’s Trust – a UK charity supporting children and young adults with brain injuries.

Malcolm and Pete says: “To see how the event has grown throughout the years and the money it has raised is overwhelming.

“Not only is it a brilliant day out but it’s also for a cause very close to our hearts.

“We hope to raise over £100,000 for children with brain injury when we come to Goodwood this summer and we know we speak for all the volunteers who help run the event when we say, we can’t wait to be back.”

The event was first launched in 2007 by Pete and Malcom’s friends, Richard Davis, and Mark Wynne Pedder, and has raised £1.5million pound so far for The Children’s Trust.

The family festival honours some of the word’s most high-performing sports cars offering passenger rides, refreshments, and attractions for the whole family to enjoy.

According to organisers, the idea behind the Supercar event was born after Richard's close family friend, Becky Groves, was left with a brain injury when she was 12 years old, after which she received rehabilitation at The Children’s Trust.

Richard was so inspired by Becky’s determination and the efforts of the charity’s rehab team, he organised for a group of Ferrari drivers to visit their headquarters and give free drives to children, family members and staff.

It was such a success that Richard formed a committee group, and the Supercar event was born.
