Welcome to the Celebration of Motorsport Charity Dinner

Saving and Changing Tiny Lives 

Now in its 23rd year this spectacular evening celebrating all that we love about every aspect of motorsport is a truly wonderful occasion and we will, once again, be joined by many great personalities and top drivers and riders, covering two-wheel and four-wheel, track and road racing.  

Pamela BallantineOur Motorsport gala dinner celebrates the thrills, spills and sporting achievements of the past year and it will be the perfect way to kick off the festive season, in the company of good friends and some of our motorsport heroes.

We will be remembering John Surtees CBE, who was unable to join us last year. Sadly he passed in March and we will, of course, be raising a glass or two in memory of the great man. 

As always we look forward to a fantastic auction delivered by the highly entertaining Richard Livingston, who will tempt us with an array of one-off items and amazing experiences. The fast paced evening will be hosted by our charity chair, the ebullient Pamela Ballantine, who we can rely on to deliver perfectly timed inter-course entertainment!

Our Celebration of Motorsport, delivered and driven by the SPARKS NI team, looks forward to seeing faces old and new to join us for a fun-filled evening to raise funds that will save and change the tiniest lives. To date over £500,000, has been raised at this annual gathering which has contributed so much to save and change little lives. 

We expect this year's event to be a sell out yet again so whether you are looking to entertain contacts, hold your office Christmas party or simply looking for a great night out with friends be sure to book your table NOW.
