Ten top reasons to visit the Show

Just 10 of the MANY reasons why Bicester Heritage is the place to be on June 23/24!
  1. See one of the only two remaining airworthy Lancaster bombers in the world in a full-on air display alongside a Spitfire and Hurricane, with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
  2. Meet Le Mans Legend Derek Bell MBE when he’s the Show Guest of Honour on Saturday 23rd June - see him out on track in a Porsche, and why not pick up a signed copy of his latest book?
  3. Witness the extravagantly-styled 1957 Kellison EXP00 doing its thing on the demonstration track in all its Batmobile-like glory, be stunned by the beauty of the exquisite Aston Martin DBR4 Formula 1 car and see drummer, TV presenter and classic car fanatic Fuzz Townshend behind the wheel of the spectacular 1920’s Fafnir Hall-Scott Special.
  4. Get up close to the giant that is a Sherman tank, count the bullet holes in the ex-ammunition test target Grant tank and take a passenger ride in a Jaguar E-type-engined Spartan reconnaissance tank.
  5. Marvel at the daredevil antics of the Demon Drome Wall of Death team as they push the boundaries of physics - and engineering - to their limits.
  6. Admire the finalists in the Flywheel Concours - from supercars and rally cars to stars of the silver screen, they’ll all be looking their best.
  7. Break out your ration cards and head for the Vintage Village where you’ll find everything from classic clothing to that essential item for a period-styled home, or go for the ultimate in stylish timepieces as Bremont bring a pop-up shop to Bicester Heritage for the weekend.
  8. Search for your next classic car at the Brightwells auction and in the Private Sales Paddock.
  9. Explore the immaculately-restored Technical Site - the former RAF Bicester - and pay a visit to the workshops and showrooms of the many historic car specialists now based there.
  10. Wander among the classic club and pre-76 car displays and spot - and vote for - the finalists in the Classic & Sports Car People’s Concours
