The ‘Drive It Day’ Sunday Scramble – which takes place on Sunday 22 April – is one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the Spring automotive calendar, with 5,000 visitors expected to pass through the gates of Bicester Heritage.

AutoClassics Mart will open for the first time in Hangar 113 (known as the AutoClassics Cars for Sale Hangar) with up to 120 spaces for cars to be marketed to fellow enthusiasts in the most ideal of settings.

Prospective buyers will have the chance to view and inspect cars in person, giving sellers the opportunity to connect directly with fellow enthusiasts and collectors. In addition, AutoClassics will lay on a display in the 1936 Grade II listed hangar, to include the new Lister Thunder and an original Honda NSX.

Anyone wishing to list their pre-1990 model can sign up for a place in the hangar by filling out the short form at: https://www.autoclassics.com/posts/news/sell-your-classic-at-bicester-heritage-sunday-scramble-free

Entry to the AutoClassics Cars for Sale Hangar is free with a Sunday Scramble ticket. Advance tickets for the event are still available from bicesterheritage.co.uk/events

Notes to editors

Bicester Heritage is creating a revolution in historic vehicle ownership. 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 people.

Founded in 2013, Bicester Heritage has gone from a standing start to a home for over 30 specialist businesses – and growing. It has a collective turnover of over £20m, making it the largest player in the industry, and it’s set to grow exponentially with a global reach.

The unique ecosystem of businesses based at a beautiful 348-acre former WW2 RAF Bomber Training Station acts as ‘marina-like’ cluster, promoting skills and expertise, employment, qualified customer footfall, shared business incubation and aggregate growth. Collectively, Bicester Heritage is all about driving the future of the past.

The former RAF Bicester site on which Bicester Heritage is now based is of national historic importance. Neglected for the best part of 40 years, it was added to Historic England’s ‘At Risk Register’ in 2008 and designated the most `at risk` of all Defence Estates in the UK.

Since Bicester Heritage’s tenure, over 80% of the buildings have been delicately restored or re-activated for modern business use, with the site now held as a national exemplar of constructive conservation by Historic England. The time-warp base is truly unmatched in evocative character, with even the paint colours being correct to 1930s British Standards. An active airfield and test track complete its dynamic operation.

The location of Bicester Heritage of course, is key. Bicester is one of the fastest growing towns in Europe with unrivalled connections via road, rail and air, situated in close proximity to the globally known City of Oxford and within 90 minutes of upwards of 30 million people.
