Your support helped make the 2017 Soar & Roar Festival, Australia's most inclusive motorsport festival, a full throttle ACCELEBRATION celebrating the athletes of Special Olympics Australia!


Special Olympics Australia Ride Festival

The Special Olympics Australia Soar & Roar Festival was a unique event providing people with an intellectual disability the opportunity to experience the thrill of a luxury car Dream Ride. On Sunday 26th November, 2017, luxury car brands and motorbikes from around NSW made their way to Sydney Motorsport Park to celebrate Special Olympics Australia athletes, their families, support networks and importantly to raise much needed funds for the not-for-profit organisation.

In 2017 we have raised over $150,000 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. Thanks to the thousands of people who provided their support!

About Special Olympics Australia

Special Olympics Australia volunteers provide sports opportunities for all people with an intellectual disability regardless of their skills, and they do this every week in communities right across Australia.

While some Special Olympics athletes strive to win medals, others enjoy the chance to get active, have fun, make friends and be part of a family. Whatever their motivation, we cater for them by providing meaningful sports programs delivered within a supportive environment where people with an intellectual disability are accepted and can feel proud.

People with an intellectual disability are often ridiculed, misunderstood, isolated or simply ignored. Yet, with the understanding and support of Special Olympics they discover the skills that allow them to improve their health, develop self-confidence and bring joy to themselves, their families and their community.

You can help us give more people with an intellectual disability a chance to achieve their personal best. Learn more about Special Olympics, be inspired by our athletes or best of all, get involved!
