Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble - 24th April
« on: 30 March 2016, 17:19:37 »

I thought I'd share this with you all for those that might either be in the area or close enough to make a special trip.
http://bicesterheritage.co.uk/events/
Not to be confused with the Flywheel Festival in July, these Sunday Scrambles are probably a bit like the Goodwood Breakfast club meets - but probably on a completely different level.
Let alone the variety of cars that normally turn up, both old and older still, the majority of the Engineering companies on site open their doors to show off their workshops and projects. If you like Blower Bentleys, this place has one of the few places on the planet that specialises in restoring them - you'll rarely see so many in one place at any one time.
It's not free (details on the website), but just walking around the site of the old airfield buildings (some restored, some not so) and various displays/companies etc I think is excellent value and is a fascinating day out if you like classic cars set in a nostalgic WWII setting.  :y :y
Don't get there too late, as some of the cars start to drift away about lunchtime.
Might see you there then?  ;)

Cheers
Ian.

I saw the word 'scramble' and thought I'd get a chance to give the MotoX bike an airing. Then I saw 'vintage' and realised that the bike is almost eligible for that.  ::)
Is this mainly military stuff Ian or is there all sorts there?

My fun car is a 2018 Bmw F32 430d M Sport with indicators.

All sorts - if you take a look round the gallery of the website you'll see some of the other open days. In fact it's probably less military and more classic/vintage stuff.
As it's on an old WWII airfield,  it does attract a decent amount of military stuff. There were 2 or 3 Green Goddess fire engines at the last one.
