Hope Classic Rally

15-16 JUNE 2018


The Hope Classic Rally is a unique event created by a group of classic car enthusiasts who wanted to put their passion to good use by creating investment capital for vulnerable children in Southern and Eastern Africa.

Now in its fourth year, this two-day event has raised over £800,000 for WeSeeHope and their Village Investors Programme, which introduces self-funding savings and loans groups to African communities, enabling adults and young people to learn skills, start their own business and dramatically improve their lives. These groups create a multiplier effect that brings change to the wider communities and specifically benefits the orphaned and vulnerable children they care for.

The premise of the rally is simple: enthusiasts donate their cars for other enthusiasts to drive, in exchange for a donation to WeSeeHope. They are some of the most beautiful cars ever built: almost everything you can imagine from a Ferrari 250SWB to a racing XK 120 to a Mercedes Benz Gullwing.

We invite you to come and enjoy being part of the movement.


The Hope Classic Rally launch event is taking place on Thursday 22nd February in Mayfair, London. This is an invitation only event but if you would like to find out more please get in touch with Shelley@WeSeeHope.org.uk.

Quotes from Previous Years

Adrian Newey
Chief Technical Officer, Red Bull Racing F1 Team

“To use Classic Cars to fund a great charity – it seems a very logical thing to do. When you look at it, you think ‘why hasn’t this been done before?’ Really, the history of Motorsport is represented by Classic Cars – we all love them!”

Ben Collins (The Stig)
“I think it’s a superb model; we’re all going to get to drive some very expensive cars and consider how we can use our money for a better cause, which is what this event is about.”

Ant Anstead
Car designer, restorer & presenter:
BBC’s “Building Cars Live”, Channel 4’s “For the Love of Cars”

“What I have learnt about (We See) Hope is that they do things properly. They invest their time properly. They are thoughtful about the way they approach charitable events – and if you’re going to do a Classic Car rally in the UK, what better place than Brooklands?”
