Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble

Held just 3 times this year the Sunday Scramble at Bicester Heritage is an all encompassing meet of car clubs and classic cars. Set among the buildings of a WWII grass airfield the setting could not be better for showcasing classic cars and vehicles.

Bicester Heritage is in it’s self a unique collection of specialist businesses all mainly centered around the preservation restoration and selling of classic and vintage vehicles many of which are located inside the original historic buildings of the ex-RAF bomber station. The leafy avenues and industrial style buildings act as great backdrops to the cars on show with the classic car and restoration businesses all open for you to explore and engage with the owners and perhaps even conduct a little business.

Various car clubs gather on the approach roads to the airfield and you will even find a few classic aircraft flying around if the weather permits.

We arrived about an hour after the advertised opening time of 9am not realising how much there would be to see, admire and of course photograph. The grey gloom and low cloud made for trying conditions and because of the trees and buildings on site adding further to the general low level of light it did not take me long to switch out my go to 18-200mm lens and pop on a nifty fifty.

So pop along to the next Sunday Scramble and enjoy a morning stroll around the many varied vehicles on display and soak up the atmosphere as people in period dress re-enact military drills similar to those that would have been carried out at this RAF base back in the 1940s.
