Sunday 5th October brought our most successful Sunday Scramble yet, with crowds filling our former RAF base to view over five hundred historic vehicles spread across our Technical Site and airfield.
Exploration of our tree lined avenues revealed all sorts of new sights for the latest Scramble, with plenty of architectural updates as our restoration work continues. Our Motor Transport Yard became a hub of commerce; automobilia stalls created a throng of interest next to our Scramble Cafe which served tasty breakfasts to the mornings’ hungry crowds. The Bicester Home Guard stood on parade in the Yard, their camp set up on the edge of the airfield where the show continued. The beautiful Deemster balloon hung in the clear blue sky, anchored to the ground by our resident David Brown Tug-masters, whilst a display of vintage gliders and aircraft flanked our figure of eight track.
Visitors were offered the opportunity to take a famous classic, such as an E Type or Mini, for a several laps of the circuit whilst others were able to witness the live construction of an AV Roe Triplane in the entrance of Historit’s hangar, take in a birds-eye view in a glider or take a ride on a Traction engine. Positioned around the site were all manner of machines, from American muscle cars to a plethora of Porsches, Austin 7s and Morris Minors to a team of Riley Sprites, 80s Ferraris and vintage cars of all sizes.
We were very happy to welcome motorcars from every decade (spanning from the earliest, a 1910 Overland, to a 2014 Porsche GT3RS) and we would like to thank all those that supported our final event of the year. We are delighted with the events success and are very excited for the first Sunday Brunch Scramble of 2015 on 4th January.
