Default Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble - 1st October

Just sticking this back up again, I went to the last one a few months ago and aimed to organise a little get-together on a stand but left it too late. Would anyone be interested in going again? I certainly enjoyed it, and the last scramble for at least another 6/7 months. Few 240's (mine and Steve's) were down, plus Ric in his Amazon and another one parked up too.

I encountered the conundrum before - Bicester will not allow a Volvo stand unless it's pre-registered by a VOC official and there's one present on the day. By having a pre-registered club, it halves the ticket price to 4.64 (including online transaction fee). Would anyone be interested in this? Pre-registration for clubs end on the 8th September, but that does mean we're allocated our own space (10+ cars required).

2 months to go I thought I'd drum up some interest...

I Love Bicester, and this would have been something i'd have been interested in provided i wasn't busy already.

I think the main issue you will have is that 80% of this forum it seems are northerners

Northerners!!!??? As opposed to Southern snobs you mean? I regularly go to Biscester Heritage in either my 1932 Morris Minor, 1961 Morris Minor or Bentley and was thinking of going this time in my Volvo. And yes, I very often wear my tweeds and flat cap! I even have a flat cap (what other kind of headwear is there?) the tweed of which goes rather nicely with the colour scheme of the Bentley.

There really is intelligent life north of Watford you know - and a lot of common sense....which is usually rather elusive south of Watford. Blooming cheeky monkey! I'm a good mind to throw a black pudding at you! Eccy Thump!

Would be good to get a stand going, but Bicester are anal about who books and who has to be there. VOC representatives, not just anyone, have to book, and have to be present on the day.

And isn't there an age restriction for cars on the stand that would exclude the vast majority of folks on the forum.

If I booked as a private individual I would have to park the C70 in the public car park.
