The final Sunday Scramble at Bicester Heritage included an impressive selection of vehicles from Abarth to Zagato, as well as historic F1 cars and a unique Aston Martin Vanquish designed by Ian Callum.
Among the wide range of vehicles that filled both the Bicester Heritage Technical Site and the airfield beyond it, were examples of world-class exotics through to now-rare models, such as the 1965 Ferrari 275GTB which sat alongside a wonderfully original 1964 Trabant saloon that had been driven from East Berlin by the original owner’s daughter.
Daniel Geoghegan, Chief Executive of Bicester Heritage, said:
“Thank you to all who joined us for the October Scramble in what felt like a coming-together of all that is good in the historic motoring world. The combination of the relaxed atmosphere, opportunity to talk with the 40 specialists at Bicester Heritage and diverse collection of cars and motorbikes was clearly a winner for enthusiasts and their families.”
There was something for everyone including supercar enthusiasts who were treated to a rare public viewing of the Ian Callum-designed Aston Martin Vantage 25, of which only 25 will be made. The legendary designer was also on hand to talk about the car and explain how he went about creating it.
BMW UK displayed the highlights of its UK Heritage collection. Stars of this were the 1938 BMW 328 roadster and the original BMW supercar, the 1978 BMW M1. The display of BMW Heritage examples was joined by a curated ‘Bavarian Motor Lawn’ that was provided by the BMW Owners Club UK. Highlight vehicles from this display included a 635CSi from the ’80s, and a wonderfully original 1939 328 Frazer-Nash, which was provided by an on-site specialist, the Historic Endurance Rally Organisation.
