Hagerty International, the classic car insurance specialist, will host their third live Valuation Arena at the Sunday Scramble, supported by H&H Classic Auctions, Classic Cars magazine and the online classified site ClassicCarsForSale.co.uk following on from their success in April and May. Valuation experts will be on hand to inspect and photograph vehicles, swiftly providing the owner with a valuation certificate and thus ensuring that your vehicles are properly valued and therefore properly insured.

Entry into Hagerty’s Valuation Arena is only available to people attending the Sunday Scramble at Bicester.  The Valuation will cost £15, all of which will go charity, and each valuation will include a certificate and goody bag of classic extras from all participating partners.  Owners are urged to bring as much information on their vehicle as possible for the valuation experts to inspect.

Finest Hour Experiences will be offering Tiger Moth flying lessons on site, click here to book your 20 minute flying slot.

You will also find the following traders in the Motor Transport Yard and along the Main Avenue: British Made Classic Car Parts, Driver John, Engine Carbon Clean, Terry Smith, U Drive Cars and Young Driver.  We are also delighted to welcome back Robert Herring and the Steam Traction Engine providing trailer rides for all.

    • What time does the event close to the public?  2pm
    • Do I need to book in advance? We strongly recommend you book in advance, as this event can and does sell out and we cannot guarantee there will be tickets available on the day.

    • How does the Hagerty Valuation Arena work?  There are a limited number of spaces available so you need to pre-book a timed slot via our website.  The tickets are £15 each with all monies raised going to charity.  At your allotted time you will need to take your vehicle to the Hagerty Valuation Arena where a team of experts will inspect the vehicle, take photographs of the vehicle and give you a printed valuation within 15 minutes.
    • Which entrances do vehicles use?  Vehicles will be directed by yellow signs to the airfield gate on the Buckingham Road.
    • May I fly in?  Bicester Heritage is delighted to welcome vintage aircraft to fly-in for Scramble events but due to limited space the aeroplane must be pre-booked, please email enquiries@historicpromotions.com.  Bicester Heritage airfield is strictly PPR please see attachment for details:  Visiting Aircraft Instructions.  The pilot and all passengers must have an entry ticket – please book online.
    • Which entrance do pedestrians use?  Pedestrians must use the main Bicester Heritage entrance on the Buckingham Road, near the roundabout with Skimmingdish Lane.
    • What can I expect to see at the event?  The Sunday Scramble is mainly an excuse for hundreds of classic vehicle enthusiasts to come together and enjoy a relaxed social gathering.  As well as enjoying the visiting classic cars, motorbikes and other vehicles, you can also glimpse inside the various specialist businesses now on site at Bicester Heritage, who will be opening their doors throughout.  The airfield will also be active, weather dependent, during the event so you can expect to see the Bicester Gliding Centre in operation.
    • What catering will be available?  There will be various catering outlets on site serving hot and cold drinks and a variety of food including bacon rolls, hog roast, burgers and hopefully ice-creams.
    • Are dogs allowed on site?  Because this is an active airfield dogs are not permitted on site, with the exception of guide dogs.
    • Is there any readmission?  No, sorry, there is no readmission if you leave the site during the event.
    • What disabled facilities are available? There is a dedicated disabled parking area close to the event entrance.  There is also a disabled toilet on site.

Not an unreasonable idea Eddie.

Any thoughts on a route for a run out after the scramble?

Any members know any good roads around the Bicester area?

Couldn't see our club listed as attending Ed.

Booked in anyway with a classic vehicle pre 1990.

Who else is going?

As Ed's suggested, I'd be up for a bit of a drive around after....Cotswold way?.. and maybe a stop off at a pub for lunch.
