Inaugural Hagerty Renaissance Meeting strikes a chord
For those who couldn't make it to Goodwood for the Revival, Hagerty International’s inaugural Bicester Heritage Renaissance Meeting offered an interesting plan-B
Over 250 pre-tax vehicles descended upon Bicester Heritage for the inaugural Hagerty Renaissance Meeting – an ‘alternative Goodwood Revival’ – on Sunday, September 9.
Conceived as an opportunity for those unable to attend the Goodwood Revival to enjoy all the track activities from the historic West Sussex event, live coverage of Goodwood’s throwback in time was projected on a large screen amid the tree-lined avenues of Bicester’s ex-RAF base turned classic car haven.

Classic vehicle insurance specialists Hagerty International crafted the event with full backing from the Goodwood Revival team, the event complete with vintage hairdressers, local air displays and marches from the Home Guard. Naturally, the Goodwood dress code applied, with everyone tailored for the occasion.
The Renaissance Meeting also supported Goodwood’s chosen charity, the RAF Benevolent Fund, and raised money for the cause by giving away Renaissance pin badges in exchange for a charity donation. Pin badge transactions raised £255.
‘We had a really terrific day, and everyone made such an effort to get into the spirit of the event with their vehicles, picnics and clothes. It was just like being at the event itself’ said Angus Forsyth, Managing Director of Hagerty International.
‘The Goodwood Revival still sets the benchmark for the classic car world and we were delighted that Bicester Heritage could play a part in sharing its magic’ said Dan Geoghegan Managing Director of Bicester Heritage.
Stylish duo Gary and Linda Davis won a pair of tickets to the Revival 2019 after being judged ‘Best Dressed Couple’, their outfits complete with 1950s accessories such as a Roberts radio, retro turntable and with a stunning Chevrolet.
‘We love Goodwood’ said Gary ‘but were not able to attend this year, so the Renaissance is the perfect way to enjoy the Revival without actually being present. It’s a brilliant idea and we’ve had a great day.’
