Unlike hyper car meetings and rallies which are often organized solely for the enjoyment of the owners, there is always a good cause behind every classic car rally that’s held anywhere in the world. The latest such event was the Hope Classic Rally in the UK, organized for the benefit of HOPEHIV charity.

The 2015 Hope Classic Rally took place over the weekend with a drive from Mercedes-Benz World in Brooklands, Surrey to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, and saw the gathering of over 40 of the world’s most desirable classic cars, collectively worth in excess of £30m.

The participants – some of whom were high-profile celebrities such as ex-England rugby player Lewis Moody MBE, ex-Top Gear Stig and 007 stunt driver Ben Collins, Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula One team’s chief technical officer Adrian Newey OBE, Ant Anstead from TV’s For The Love of Cars, and Classic Car Show’s Jodie Kidd – also raised £150,000 in charity auctions, all of which will go to HOPEHIV, a charity which supports vulnerable young people in sub-Saharan Africa.

As for the cars the took part in the event, you will see the best of them in the gallery below, but to mention a few, there was the Ferrari 250 SWB, 365 GTB/4 Daytona, 288 GTO and 550 Barchetta, Mercedes-Benz 300SL ‘Gullwing’, several Aston Martins (including examples of the DB4, DB5, V8 Vantage and V8 Vantage Zagato), two Porsche 911 2.7 RS, a Lamborghini Miura, a Lotus Elite, an ex-Roy Salvadori Jaguar XK120 and ex-Duncan Hamilton XK120 and several Jaguar E-types.
