Pedal to the metal for The Classic Car Drive In Weekend

Friday 11 September 2020

The organisers of next week’s The Classic Car Drive In Weekend (18-20 September) have affirmed that the innovative event will continue as announced.

Conceived from the outset as a covid-compliant automotive celebration centred around a drive in cinema and socially distanced classic car show, the ground-breaking three-day show is staged outdoors at Bicester Heritage, a  spacious 444-acre former WW2 RAF Bomber Training Station that is today home to the UK’s only Centre for Historic Motoring Excellence.

A full review of covid-compliancy has been undertaken following the introduction of the government’s latest ‘rule of six’ legislation and a number of additional secondary measures have been introduced to reinforce these new guidelines. These include revised signage and the provision of supplementary attendants to ensure the safety of all visitors. Ticket buyers will also now be limited to six tickets per booking.

“As well as being a fantastic chance to welcome back enthusiasts and provide the industry with a much-needed boost, The Classic Car Drive In Weekend was always designed to be totally covid compliant,” confirmed show director Bas Bungish. “I must, though, thank all those ticket buyers, exhibitors and other stakeholders who have shown their undiluted support for our endeavours in what are clearly challenging times. We all share their enthusiasm.”

We’re delighted to have teamed up with The Classic Car Show Team to offer Motorsport UK members a £5 discount on Full Experience show tickets – making them just £20 for adults and £15 children (aged 5-15). Full Experience tickets will automatically give visitors access to one drive in film of their choice as well as all the full show site.

For those looking just to drive in, park up and enjoy a movie, a Film only ticket is also on offer priced at £10 for adults and £7.50 for children. And for those wanting to spend the day in the heart of the show and track a Show only ticket is also available at £18 for adults and £10 for children.

Full experience show tickets offer even greater value. Priced at just £25 for adults and £15 children (aged 5-15), these automatically give visitors access to the entire showground including a fantastic drive in, car-themed movie of their choice. Any remaining tickets will be available on the day but at a £5 premium, so booking in advance is highly recommended.
