A RECORD-breaking number of people turned out for the first Sunday Scramble of the year.
Bicester Heritage said hundreds of classic car enthusiasts passed through the gates in Buckingham Road, Bicester, making it the most popular January Scramble ever.
Among the spread of vintage, modern and modern classic cars at the former RAF Bomber Command training base were everything from original Austin 7s to the latest Ferrari 812 Superfast.
More than 1,000 cars lined up across the 348-acre former base, which dates back to the First World War and includes all the original buildings and workshops – many of which have been restored.
Bicester Heritage, a business centre for classic car and aviation firms, was founded in 2013 and is home to 30 specialist businesses.
New firm Sports Purpose drew huge crowds on the day with a display that included the Leyton House CG901B.
The car was produced for the 1990 Formula One World Championship and built in nearby Telford Road.
While at Historit, the on-site car storage company’s workshop, the 1979 Williams FW07 Alan Jones Formula One was on show and “performed ear-splitting start-ups”.
And the new, onsite micro-brewery, The Wriggly Monkey Brewery, served up its first prototype beer ‘Sanction A’ to the Scramble crowds.
