The Sunday Scramble at Bicester Heritage is a truly unique event. It’s kind of like a Cars & Coffee meet, but on steroids. The location, filling the vintage car and aviation hub at Bicester Heritage, is just so damn photogenic, and the roll-up is unlike anything you’ll see anywhere else. There’s no real theme to it – so long as it’s interesting and a little bit cool, it’s welcome.
A trip to Sunday Scramble is mandatory for every car enthusiast – you’re likely to see an F40 parked alongside an old Porsche, and a TR4 rubbing shoulders with an Alfa Romeo. Highlights of our trip included being followed into the venue by a Jaguar XJ220, and seeing a French Bulldog riding proudly in the passenger seat of a Ferrari 348. It was cold – bitterly cold – but we were warmed to see many attendees braving the conditions in vintage Bentleys and other open cars. At one point, we stood by as a 1904 Indian Motorcycle was put through its paces on a roller. A highlight was walking into one of the workshops to see a pristine BMW 328 taking pride of place.
The BMW Car Club was represented by an extensive display on the grass airfield, hosted by the Central Region. All manner of BMWs sat on dipslay for the thousands of attendees to see.
Here, we take a look at the BMW highlights from the January Sunday Scramble. The next Sunday Scramble is on April 22 – make sure that you’re there, in your BMW!
