The first Stoke Row Racing Car Show was held in 2009. It came about after a conversation between Iain Rowley of Delta Motorsport and the members of the Stoke Row Racing Club when it was decided to organise a village event at Vanalloys Business Park with a motor sport theme in order to raise money for charity. Money raised at that first show was used to produce a neonatal dialysis machine which had been designed by one of the tenants on the site. These machines have now saved the lives of many babies who were too small to receive conventional dialysis.
The show grew rapidly in 2010 thanks in part to being blessed with superb weather for a second year and the number of attractions increased along with the spectators. The show endured bad weather in 2011 and 2012 but 2013 saw the sun return and helped the show surpass the £20,000 mark in donations. Some of the good causes who have benefitted from the show are listed below.
Neonatal Dialysis Machines
Berkshire Air Ambulance
Headway Thames Valley
Stoke Row School Minibus
Stoke Row School Sensory Garden
Bishopswood Special School Minibus
Stoke Row Village Hall Refurbishment Fund
Robbie the Robot (RBH Kidney Unit)
The 2014 show moved to a new more spacious venue in Nuffield, just 2 miles from the old site and we look forward to seeing you there!
