Whilst the term 'business park' usually brings up images of drab, lifeless concrete precast buildings and a general sense of gloom; Bicester Heritage takes this stereotype and turns it on its' head. Being constructed from a former WWII Bomber Command base and sympathetically added to throughout its' life, it not only plays host to a variety of motoring - focussed businesses, but also flings open its doors throughout the year to the public for what they affectionately name 'scrambles'.
These breakfast-club style events attract thousands of cars and owners from across the UK, all converging on the historic site of Bicester airfield, displaying their cars along the avenues and roads that criss-cross the site, ensuring that every corner you turn always has something different to admire.
With it being a very early start, the displays are often very fluid, with early arrivals often leaving halfway through the event and being replaced by something new, meaning you can do 3 or 4 'laps' of the site and still not see exactly the same layout or cars time and again.
Whilst the idea of the 'breakfast club' event is certainly nothing new; Instead of attempting to re-invent the style, Bicester just simply triumphs over them all.
This feature looks back over the last 2 years of scrambles that I have attended in one big photo montage, to hopefully both showcase the various marques of cars and the fantastic workshops on display at Bicester Heritage, but also to share the unique atmosphere of the shows with those who may not be able to attend.
Grab a brew, sit down and enjoy the following photographic journey through the avenues of Bicester Heritage.
