This looks like it could be a spectacular weekend with track demonstrations, classic cars to drool over and a choice of top notch films to watch at a Drive-in cinema.

Set within the grounds at Bicester Heritage, the home of Historic Motoring, the organisers of The London Classic Car Show have created a socially distanced, Covid-compliant outdoor event that celebrates Classic Cars in all their glory.

The Classic Car Drive In Weekend features an homage to some of the most iconic and classic car movies at the very first Drive In dedicated to cars! Films on offer include cult classics The Italian Job and Days of Thunder, Racing Legends on the big screen Senna and Rush; along with power fuelled blockbusters Baby Driver, Le Mans 66, Gone in 60 Seconds and Fast & Furious 7 amongst others.

The Classic Car Drive In Weekend is truly a celebration of everything Classic, with more than 500 cars on display, over 25 of the UK’s leading Car Clubs, top dealers, a live auction courtesy of Bonhams MPH, Classic Car Parades and track demonstrations along with a host of car-related traders and retailers.

So, whether you’re a collector, in the market for a new classic car, a movie buff or a classic car enthusiast, what better way to spend the weekend?

I saw this the other day. What is the 'show' info as the website isn't explaining any real detail unless I am missing it. £26 each per ticket...... :sweat:

The show will be track demonstrations of various Classic racing and road cars. There is a planned flying display. Traders village and the various display cars. I appreciate it’s not cheap but what does a cinema ticket cost these days? £10 each?

I’m hoping to hear back with a club code. I’ll update it all soon.

Thanks for the update of the 'show'. I can watch Ford v Ferrari for £3.99 for 4 people in my house :whistle: . Others on the list free of charge.........I get there is all the organiser costs which will be double now and reduced numbers of tickets for visitors under COVID rules. Far cheaper than a Silverstone Classic or similar. Far more than a usual Bicester Scramble day. With both of those you know what you are getting for the money. A car with family of 4 would be circa £80. Might be an awesome day we read about after the event wishing you turned up but was turned off by limited info and high'ish' price.
