Classics flock to Bicester Heritage

Published 26 April 2018

More than 1000 classic cars headed over to Bicester Heritage Centre for this year’s Drive It Day Sunday Scramble.

Drive It Day is a national event that encourages people to get out and use their cars. This year’s highlights included some choice vehicles from Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport with 2017 and 2010 Formula One race cars, as well as a 450SEL 6.9, a 560 SEC and a Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing

Sports Purpose, which deals collectors’ Porsches and their contemporary motoring rivals, opened its new showroom in the restored former Motor Transport Yard. Crowds gathered around the dealership to enjoy the likes of an extremely rare Lancia B20 GT Outlaw, as well as Porsche 356s and 911s

Joining Sports Purpose in launching in the heart of the site was historic sports, competition and touring car specialist Robert Glover Ltd, which unveiled a new showroom for vintage cars.

Kingsbury Racing displayed their recently completed Speed Six saloon, the most original of its type to survive in the world. Having been commissioned to make it mechanically perfect but to leave the exterior and interior untouched, the result is a time warp restoration of magnificent proportions. The car retains its original interior which is beautifully worn and is now ready for its owner to enjoy in the good weather

Dan Geoghegan, managing director of Bicester Heritage, said, ‘Sunday’s Scramble was the best yet – a fitting milestone for Bicester Heritage's fifth anniversary. Not only were we able to welcome over 6000 enthusiasts and more than 1000 classic vehicles on Drive It Day, but also the latest new specialists and partners ranging from Porsche expertise to the Bremont Watch Company.’
