Scramblers, the Bicester Heritage membership club, saw a record 300 members’ cars join the display as part of the sell-out two-day Scramble event in April. Things are definitely looking up for (mainly) blokes who love cars, with more than 11,000 attendees at the Scramble.
The Club welcomed a variety of content including a Healey by Caton, and the Prodrive 2000 BTCC winning Ford Mondeo.
Born from the success of the site’s public Scramble events, Scramblers hosts exclusive members-only gatherings on the final weekend of each month. These gatherings, or Scramblers ‘Assemblies’ celebrate a variety of themes, with Hot-Hatches, 90s Icons, British Classics featured to date. The highlight for many was a members’ breakfast meeting in January for rally cars, nicknamed the ‘Brekkie Recce’.

Philip White, Associate Director, Brand and Marketing comments: “It was great to see such a variety of Scramblers’ machines out in force for the April event – reflected in the outstanding displays we had across the majority of the Bicester Heritage site. It’s wonderful for us to see the club going from strength to strength, and we are looking forward to seeing what the second half of the year brings.”
