Chris Evans will be hosting a special sports car event in aid of Children in Need next month at Chewton Glen, the country house hotel in Hampshire.

On Thursday 1st July 2010, Chewton Glen Hotel is hosting a photo opportunity for invited members of the press, where they will have the opportunity of photographing a unique line-up of seven magnificent Ferraris and their lucky drivers. This sports car event is part of the 2010 'Chris Evans Magnificent Seven', a unique Ferrari drive organised by BBC Radio 2 celebrity broadcaster Chris Evans and his team.

The sports car event begins by hosting the Ferrari Drivers' Banquet, followed by an overnight stay at the country house hotel in Hampshire for all drivers and their co-drivers.

This is the second year that Chewton Glen has supported Chris Evans' fundraising efforts for the Children in Need appeal. The project raised over half a million pounds for the BBC's Children in Need campaign in November 2009, when the lucky drivers bid on-air during Chris's radio show, to win a place in the sports car event - which culminates in being placed in the 'super car' batch at the Hill Climb at Goodwood on Sunday 4th July 2010.

"Our country house hotel is delighted to be an official host of Chris Evans' sports car event, so that we can support Children in Need again this year" commented Chewton Glen's Managing Director, Andrew Stembridge.

The seven Ferraris taking part in this year's sports car event are: the 1964 Ferrari 250 Lusso; 1990 Ferrari F40; 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO; 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB4; 1971 Ferrari Dino; 1957 Ferrari Testarossa Recreation; and finally the world record breaking James Coburn 1961 Ferrari 250 California Spyder.

The sports cars, their drivers, and hopefully Pudsey Bear, are scheduled to arrive at Chewton Glen at around 3pm, and Chris Evans has agreed to host the photo opportunity on the Croquet Lawn at the country house hotel. The cars will be displayed during the afternoon whilst the drivers enjoy the experience of afternoon tea in Hampshire at its finest.
