Our 5th Sunday Brunch Scramble will coincide with FBHVC’s International Drive It Day on the 26th April. The gates to Bicester Heritage’s airfield and Technical Site will open to welcome the public once more, with a hearty breakfast and an abundance of vintage and classic vehicles and aircraft on display. The 48-acre Technical Site will host a display of visitors’ vehicles which, in a similar fashion to January’s event, will fill the tree-lined avenues of the UK’s most complete WW2 bomber station.

The Specialists based at Bicester Heritage will open the doors to their freshly restored 1920s and ‘30s buildings, allowing behind the scenes access to their showrooms and workshops (specialising in upholstery, vintage Bentley engineering, specialist storage, vintage, classic and racing car and bike sales, plus much more) on a site that is normally accessible by appointment only. Visitors who arrive in and on their cherished vehicles are encouraged to park their pride and joy around the base, adding to a display of machines from all ages. Elsewhere on the Technical Site Brooklands Museum are planning a display, whilst the former RAF Motor Transport Yard will fill with automobilia stands and food stalls.

Vintage aircraft are expected to land in the morning and form a static display on the edge of the airfield’s perimeter track where, by popular demand, the WW1 Aviation Heritage Trust will start up and run their magnificent RAF BE2e biplane. Also on the airfield The Bicester Gliding Centre will be offering glider flights and a chance to try their gliding simulator. Please contact Tiggy Atkinson on 01869 327928 to book a glider flight at the Brunch and receive 10% off the normal booking price as a Brunch guest.

Entry for historic vehicles, motorbikes and sports cars will be offered at a discounted price of £5 per vehicle, £10 for modern vehicles. Gates will open from 9am (for historic vehicles), 10.30am for modern cars and close at 2pm. Strictly no dogs please

"Drive it Day" is run by and open to all car clubs across the country..... So there are numerous events on the same day...so most people do it with their local car club..... Like me Sando and Mick
