Scramble!

The Bicester Heritage Scramble. The infamous WW2 RAF bomber training station turned Mecca for all things automotive in Britain. If Bicester isn't already on your radar, it really ought to be. Our own Bomber Command Barney attended Saturdays meeting in Oxfordshire - we thought we would share a few of the standouts here.



Never has man nor woman arrived so auspiciously as one does in a Citroen DS.


The original Alpine A110, what a cracking machine - we are fortunate to have the reimagined 2020 model in the Hero collection.



This concourse Series 1 Peugeot 106 Rallye was a standout for me, with a plucky little 1.3 8v engine these little Peugeots are guaranteed to put a grin on your face.



More hot-hatches from the French representatives in the form of this Peugeot 1.9 GTI.



Not often we see the Datsun 240Z on our roads, this gorgeous sports coupe was Japans answer to the Jaguar E-Type.



With the Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth on our ramps starting to take shape, it's encouraging to see another example from the blue oval to keep our workshop going.


Ford vs. Ferarri.



Without putting words in Barneys mouth, I think it's safe to say that the Panda 4x4 was the star of the show. From the mind of Giorgetto Giugiaro, a prolific designer that brought the world the BMW M1, the Mk I Golf GTI and the Nikon F3 - I encourage you all to google this mans resume, it will blow your mind!



The representatives from Stuttgart were in attendance with an eclectic mix of styles and finishes.






Whilst on the subject of inspired finishes, I would very much like to know the story behind this Alfa Romeo's nose art.


Of course, an historic motoring event would not be complete without our two wheeled friends, that provided affordable travel to the post war masses - they're also rather jolly good fun!



Another rare attendee from Japan.



An Alpina C2 2.7 in full livery - I had to share at least one Alpina, didn't I?



If you have enjoyed this post, I would urge you all to book your tickets to the next Sunday Scramble on October 6th 2024 - If you see Barney, be sure to give him a wave!
