Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble
The Sunday Scramble at Bicester Heritage started in 2014 as a ‘cars and coffee’ style event, it has since blossomed into one of the finest classic vehicle get-togethers in the UK. Attracting enthusiasts from across the UK and Europe, the Sunday Scramble events offer the opportunity to explore the former RAF Bicester base, its restored wartime buildings and the specialist businesses based there.
The unique location is the UK’s only hub for historic motoring excellence and is the national centre for a £5.5bn per annum industry that employs over 34,000 skilled workers. Having been off-limits to the public for the best part of one hundred years in the hands of the RAF and MOD, historic vehicle owners and enthusiasts can now drive through the gates of this once hidden location. Spending a Sunday morning freely exploring the Technical Site, and specialists businesses based there, they can bring their own vehicles to add to the diverse display of machinery that makes this event so spectacular.
Just 100 visitors attended the first Scramble, some 5,000 made the ‘Drive It Day’ Scramble in April 2017, which goes some way to illustrating its (still growing) popularity. On Sunday 7th January came the first Sunday Scramble of 2018, it proved as popular as ever and it was attended by a wealth of Porsches, both classic and modern. Many were part of the Porsche Club Great Britain, which exclusively filled Hanger 113 with everything from 911s to Caymans. Of course, there were plenty more Porsches outside of the hanger too, here are just a few in our event gallery below…
