From safe trackside spectating bays, visitors were thrilled as more than 60 motor sport icons revved up and lapped Bicester Heritage’s own test track. Crowd-pleasers included an eccentric array of vintage racers, Grand Prix cars of all ages plus a special tribute to rally legend Colin McRae who became the first British driver to lift the World Rally Championship title exactly 25 years ago in 1995.
In between five daily live performances, show-goers were treated to some magical car club collections as well as a special reserved parking display featuring hundreds of classics driven to the sun-drenched event by those attending. Ticket holders were also free to wander around the restoration and historic automotive specialists resident at Bicester Heritage, the UK’s acclaimed first Centre of Excellence for Historic Motoring.
On the other side of the vast airfield, two drive-in cinemas screened a great selection of car-centric movies selected expressly for petrolhead audiences with Rush, The Italian Job and Le Mans 66 proving to be the most popular attractions.
