Building on the tremendous success of the Sunday Scramble events, the latest of which welcomed over 7,000 guests to the former WW2 RAF Bomber Station, Bicester Heritage will host the first ‘Super Scramble’ on Sunday 23rd June.

An extension of the traditional Sunday Scramble format, the Super Scramble will see a carefully curated selection of 100 vehicles from a variety of eras on display in the surroundings of the Technical Site. Furthermore, owners will have the chance to take to the track for demonstration laps, allowing guests to not only witness these cars in a fitting static environment but also at pace around the twists and turns of the Bicester Heritage test track.

In typical Sunday Scramble fashion, the 40 specialists on-site at former RAF Bicester will open their doors and showcase not only exceptional vehicles, but also the incredible skills housed in the Grade II listed wartime buildings around the site.

Another new addition to the traditional Scramble format will be housed within Exhibition Hangar 113. This 45,000 square foot 1936 C-type hangar turned exhibition hall will be home to a classic market place, including a Classic Trader Village and the very first Autojumble at Bicester Heritage. With an assembled audience of several thousand enthusiasts, this area is sure to prove a popular new addition.

A superb selection of vintage aircraft will also be on display on the airfield, with Scramble partners Bremont bringing select aircraft from their Great War Display Team and the Vintage Aircraft Club in attendance also.

Hagerty will be hosting the Valuation Arena offering guests the chance to have their car valued by industry leading experts. As always, the £15 fee for this will go entirely to charity and each owner will be presented with a valuation certificate following their assessment.

Guests are encouraged to bring along their own pride and joy to the Super Scramble. Forward parking is available for pre-1990 vehicles and, as always, there is bountiful parking for other vehicles.

Dan Geoghegan, Managing Director of Bicester Heritage, commented: “Bicester Heritage is all about inclusive historic car community, skills and dynamic activity.  The Super Scramble will combine all of these, and our first Autojumble will be launched, too, in a WW2 hangar offering an acre of covered space.”

The inaugural Super Scramble will take place on Sunday 23rd June, running from 10am until 5pm. Tickets will be available for advanced purchase only, not on the gates, and are now available on the Bicester Heritage website.
