Could your car be a star of the Show?

The latest exciting new addition to the Show is the Flywheel Concours - and nominations are invited....

One of the new attractions at the Show is the Flywheel Concours, a brand-new concours competition. Owners of eligible cars are invited to nominate their vehicles for possible inclusion. 

There will be six separate themed classes, all curated by experienced classic motoring and motorsport consultant and writer Gary Axon. Each class will have its own display area within the historic Bicester Heritage Technical Site and will be assessed by expert judges.

The six Flywheel Concours classes are: 

  • The Dawn of the Supercar - No concours is complete without a display of the legendary supercars that graced every schoolkid’s bedroom walls in the 1960s and ‘70s. More...
  • Movie Star Cars - We’re looking for cars that have either starred on the silver screen or are highly accurate facsimiles of movie motoring greats. More...
  • British Leyland 50th Anniversary - This class celebrates some of BL’s finest classic makes and models, including MG, Triumph, Jaguar, Austin-Healey, Rover, Daimler, Austin, Morris and Wolseley. More...
  • Gassers - In the 1960s, one of the most popular drag-racing categories was the Gasser Class. More...
  • Classic Rally Cars - Loose-surface heroes will move from special stage to centre stage with a selection of pre-1976 rally cars that went that extra mile, through the gravel, mud and snow.
  • Stars of the 1948 Earls Court Motor Show - Earls Court reopened its doors in 1948 for Britain’s first post-War motor show.  Cars launched in that year included the Land-Rover 88, Jaguar XK120 and MkV, Porsche 356, Morris Minor, Citroën 2CV, Aston Martin 2-Litre and Bristol 401.More...
