Our Community Investment Initiatives
We are committed to giving back to our communities across the globe and working with charitable organisations to create a better tomorrow.
Helping to raise funds for important causes
Each year, the Ultimate Driving Tours team partners with a different charitable organisation to raise money and awareness for important causes and community-based programs. Explore some of our charitable work below.
Charitable organisations we partner with
Race Against Dementia
UDT has worked extensively with Sir Jackie Stewart’s Race Against Dementia charity to help raise money to fund innovative dementia research.
We’re proud to continue to support Race Against Dementia in 2023, raising a total of $53,000 over the Australian Grand Prix weekend.
Our annual fundraiser at the Melbourne Grand Prix this year raised $11,000, with one lucky guest winning the now customary methuselah of Veuve Clicquot, signed by our good friend Sir Jackie Stewart.
We also had the privilege of attending the RAD gala and Australian premiere screening of STEWART, the recently produced film about Sir Jackie’s eventful life, where we were able to raise a further $42,000 from generous bidders on two 2024 Monaco Grand Prix hospitality packages.
In 2022 we were able to raise more than $38,000 through our work with Race Against Dementia.
This included offering two places on our hosted yacht for the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix, a donated auction prize which sold for $28,000.
Over the Australian Grand Prix weekend, our suite guests raised an additional $8,000 as we raffled a variety of special items including a methuselah of Veuve Clicquot signed by Sir Jackie Stewart and a pit walk with Sam Brabham. Ultimate Driving Tours added just over $2,000 to this amount for a grand total of $38,000.
Ultimate Driving Tours donated two places on the Italian Supercar Tour at a charity cocktail evening in the lead up to the 2019 Australian Grand Prix, with donations raising around $25,000.
The beginning of our partnership with Race Against Dementia saw us host a private dinner with Sir Jackie for guests of our 2017 World Champions Tour, with Sir Jackie’s fee being donated to the charity.
Make-A-Wish has been helping kids across the world make wishes into reality for over 40 years, and we couldn’t be prouder to make our contribution to this important foundation.
This year we extended our support of Make-A-Wish to its homeland in USA, attending the Celebration Exotic Car Festival in Florida.
We’re thrilled that we were fortunate enough to raise a staggering $112,000 in the charity auction, where we donated two 2024 Monaco Grand Prix superyacht hospitality packages. It was an amazing event and we hope to return next year.
In 2015 we partnered with the Shine & Dine Gala in their support of Make-A-Wish Australia and its mission to bring joy, hope and strength to children with critical illnesses.
We were delighted to donate a pair of places on our Monaco Grand Prix hospitality experience to the Shine & Dine charity auction, which raised $15,000 for the Foundation.
Challenge via Robert Allenby Gala Dinner
For three decades, the Robert Allenby Golf Day and Gala Dinner has become more than just a household name within the Challenge community. This annual event allows participants to match their golfing game against some of the sport’s most elite talents, followed by a sensational evening gala evening and charity auction.
We were very proud to raise over $85,000 for our friends at Challenge, who provide incredible support for kids with cancer, at the annual Robert Allenby Golf Day. Two lucky winners will join us on our Monaco F1 Superyacht, before heading out on the Provence Supercar Tour in 2023.
In 2019, Ultimate Driving Tours donated a pair of places on our Monaco Grand Prix hospitality experience and were delighted to raise $25,000 for the Challenge charity as part of the auction.
Channel 7 Telethon via Lexus Ball
Lexus of Perth’s annual Ball for Telethon supported the iconic Channel 7 Telethon which has been running for more than 55 years, during which time more than $457 million in donations have contributed to countless life-changing programs.
As part of the Ball for Telethon 2017, 2018 and 2019 editions, Ultimate Driving Tours donated a pair of places annually for the Monaco Grand Prix hospitality experience, with a grand total of $117,000 raised for charity.
