Record numbers at first Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble of 2018
An incredible attendance of 4000 people and over 1000 cars, including two F1 racers, on display at the former World War Two airbase's first event of the year
More than 4000 people attended the first Sunday Scramble of the year at Bicester Heritage, a record number for the January display.
The former World War Two airbase, which recently announced a further £3 million investment, opened up to the public with an impressive spread of vintage, classic and modern classic cars.
More than 1000 vehicles featured, spanning pre-war racers and Austin Sevens through to the new Ferrari 812 Superfast.
Two Formula 1 cars were also on display. The 1990 Leyton House CG901B was the first car headed up by design ace Adrian Newey as the team’s technical director, and was built in nearby Telford Road, Bicester.
Meanwhile, an ex-Alan Jones 1979 Williams FW07 was also running at the show, attracting huge crowds as its DFV Cosworth engine was fired up.
Since opening in 2013, the 348-acre historic vehicle centre now houses over 30 specialist business. This year, AutoClassics will move to its new headquarters at the Bicester Heritage site.
