Bicester Heritage is to host an all-new and exciting car-themed event designed specifically to provide enthusiasts with an outstanding outdoor, socially distanced visitor experience over the weekend of 18-20 September.
The ground-breaking show – the very first drive in dedicated to cars – will treat show-goers to a drive in movie and some of the world’s finest classic and competition cars performing live in thrilling and evocative action.
Located on the UK’s best-preserved WW2 RAF Bomber Station, Bicester Heritage is one of the UK’s most significant motoring destinations and home to the first Centre of Excellence for Historic Motoring.
Films already confirmed for The Classic Car Drive In Weekend include The Italian Job, Gone In 60 Seconds, Fast and Furious 7 and Baby Driver while the billing is equally impressive for motor sport fans with Rush, Senna, Le Mans 66 and Days of Thunder all on the line-up.
With two drive in cinemas and three screenings each and every day, no fewer than 18 different viewing options will be available.
Visitors also will be offered a full day’s entertainment topped by dramatic demonstration runs on a specially constructed course on the existing track at Bicester Heritage, which will also stage colourful motoring parades.
Other highlights will include gatherings of more than 25 of the UK’s leading car clubs, eye-catching displays by top dealers, a host of car-related traders and retailers plus a live Bonhams MPH car auction hosted on-site.
Adding to the spectacle and magical atmosphere, classic car owners are also being encouraged to drive into the event and display their own personal pride and joy to the world.
Daniel Geoghegan CEO of Bicester Heritage commented: “The Classic Car Drive In Weekend is the perfect excuse to throw open the doors again at Bicester Heritage and to share the vibrant spirit here, we look forward to welcoming enthusiasts to our Centre of Excellence for Historic Motoring.”
Show tickets – priced at just £25 for adults and £15 children (aged 5-15) – will automatically give visitors access to one drive in film of their choice.
For those looking to drive in, park up and just enjoy a film, a movie screening ticket is also on offer priced at £10 for adults and £7.50 for children.
