A new format of classic-car event for the new normal, The Classic Car Drive In Weekend is coming to Bicester Heritage in Oxfordshire on 18-20 September.
Socially distanced yet still packed with entertainment, visitors can enjoy drive-in films from the comfort of their car including Days of Thunder, Gone in 60 Seconds, Rush and Le Mans ’66, broadcast from two cinemas and with three screenings every day.
And, of course, owners are encouraged to come in their much-loved classic and enthusiast cars.
But it’s not just for movie-goers…
There will also be a live Bonhams MPH auction, demonstration runs and parades on the Bicester Heritage track, car-club and dealer displays and traders.
A limited number of tickets is available to ensure the event is COVID-compliant – you can choose to just enjoy the drive-in or the classic car show, or to revel in the full experience.
Tickets are on general release from Friday 14 August, but pre-registration is open now, meaning you can guarantee your tickets via an advance pre-sale from Wednesday 12 August.
“With so many of our traditional motoring attractions being postponed, cancelled or run behind closed doors, we were determined to create a wonderful event for the new normal,” enthused show director Bas Bungish.
“In these challenging times our priority will always be to provide a safe and secure environment for all our visitors and exhibitors but that doesn’t mean we can’t all enjoy a fabulous day out with friends and family if the right precautions are in place. Indeed, that’s exactly what so many of us have been yearning for.”
