The historic motoring community will embrace Bicester Heritage as it opens it’s gates for the final time in 2017 on 1st October.
The 14th edition at Bicester Heritage promises to follow on from the success of Scrambles past, as visitors can enjoy going behind the scenes at over 30 dedicated restoration, engineering and fabrication businesses and also take in the UK’s best-preserved WW2 RAF Bomber Station.
In addition, Bicester Heritage will reveal the initial, freshly restored buildings of the fourth phase of restoration, most notably the Motor Transport Yard. The buildings have been restored in a similar fashion to the rest of the Bomber Station, using period correct-colours and roof tile patterns, but they have been considerably updated and made appropriate for modern commercial use.
Auto Wax Works
Opening their doors for the first time at the Motor Transport Yard will be Auto Wax Works and Legend Automotive’s brand new showroom, giving guests an insight into what they can expect next season.
The Bicester Heritage community is constructed as a supportive ecosystem of business, skills, events and provides a one-stop shop for motoring enthusiasts. From vehicle storage to specialist dealers, upholsterer, vintage car radiator manufacturer, fabricators, classic car service centre, grand-prix car preparation and more, it’s the true home of the classic car.
The likes of Classic Performance Engineering, Kingsbury Racing Shop and Historit will be opening their doors to give guests an insight into what it takes to store, run and maintain a historic automobile.
There’ll be in excess of 1,000 cars in attendance for guests to get up close and personal with – spanning a century of automotive history. The 14th Sunday Scramble comes off the back of news that Bicester Heritage’s very own Flywheel has joined forces with the Classic & Sports Car Show, and the cars on show will preview what visitors can expect from June’s eagerly anticipated event.
As always, the Sunday Scramble will cater for lovers of both wings and wheels, and once again, the Tiger 9 team will also be putting on a static display on the airfield and Finest Hour Experiences will be offering the chance to head up to the skies in a stunning Tiger Moth aeroplane for a 20-minute trial flying lesson – provided that the weather is fine and that the warmest clothes are worn!
Hagerty International will once again be hosting a live Valuation Arena at the event, allowing classic car owners to have their vehicle assessed by a team of experts who photograph the car and provide a valuation certificate. It costs just £15 and all proceeds going to charity.
Advance discount tickets for the Sunday Scramble are still available from bicesterheritage.co.uk/events. Sunday Scramble returns in the new season on 7th January 2018
