Kicking off the New Year in Style at Bicester Heritage
Vintage motoring enthusiasts descended upon Bicester Heritage for the first Sunday Scramble of 2017. More than 1,000 cars lined up across the 348-acre former Royal Air Force base in the heart of England, with motorcycles and aeroplanes also showcased.
At the first open day of the year, over 2,500 enthusiasts celebrated all things automotive with like-minded fanatics around the site and on the airfield.Notable historic cars that arrived at the Sunday Scramble including plenty of vintage 4.5 litre Bentleys, Vauxhall 30-98s and a beautiful Aston Martin Ulster with masses of race history, while the likes of three Ferrari F12 TDFs, two of McLaren’s 675LT supercars and Aston Martin’s latest Vanquish S and DB11 also wowed guests.
The first Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble of 2017 also gave attendees the chance to see some of the unrestored buildings of RAF Bicester before Bicester Heritage rolls out its fourth phase of restoration. The site will benefit from an extra 30,000 square feet of workshop, office and engineering space. Plus, wider development — including a hotel and motoring lodges — is also in the pipeline.
Bicester Heritage hosts regular open days throughout the year. For additional information, visit BicesterHeritage.co.uk.

very poor quality photos compared with what we are used to from Sportscardigest. Too many people & not enough whole cars. Perhaps next year you could commisssion a professional car photographer so we can enjoy the veriety & number of vehicles.
Thank you for the terrific photo gallery. The tone and texture of the photos aptly portray the cars and people in the winter drizzle with a the refreshing POV often suggesting peaking into the scene instead of the usual (in your face) framing. I was delighted to see the gear-head spectators who appear natural in their element as opposed to the artificially over-stylised attired (ladies) we see in the more high profile automotive events. The photos not only captured the cars, but also captured the setting, essence, and feeling of the event. Bravo Ms. Shore.
Having been stationed at RAF Upper Heyford with the USAF in the 70’s and having worked part time at March racing I was very intrigued to see the photos. Brought back many old memories of my early years. Would love to see more of the facilities.
