Ahh that’s just how it goes, organising events like this are like nailing jelly to the wall whilst simultaneously herding cats, don’t blame PH for setting a deadline!

It’s my own fault, bought the tickets over a week ago and only saw the PH thread a few days ago ....

Ditto-149 as we speak. Hopefully I’ll get in with a big smile and small talk!

A big sarcastic thanks to all those who removed themselves at the last minute who probably had no intention of going (indeed-did they even have tickets?) why do people always do this for every Sunday service!?!

Anyone head up the A34 north from south of the M4? Might see you on the hoon going in the other direction.

ENTRANCE AND PARKING

Unfortunately Bicester still haven't told us where we're parking tomorrow or where to enter from – so we will just have to assume we'll be in a similar position to last year.

So based on pure assumption – the main gate will NOT be in use and entry will likely be from the west gate or south gate. Our parking area was on the outside of the test track near the airfield as indicated by the black area in the image below so head for this rough area and look for PistonHeads flags!

We'll post an update on here as soon as we arrive tomorrow but for now, this is the best we've got.

Just so everyone knows, this map is accurate! We're in the same spot as before, next to Porsche club. See you soon!

Very cold day to take out the roadster and spend on a airfield
Typically home now and it's just got sunny 15 miles away

I Would recommend this event to anybody next year, or later this one if we can get another invite ?
And worth the full ticket price if you cannot make the cut here

Highly enjoyable.

The "carpark" is as interesting as the Scramble itself.

Good showing from the pistonheads section with a great mix of cars.

A34 Northbound south of M4 I saw

Dolphin Grey 944 Turbo
Lotus Elise blue with nice spoiler
Mustang original dark colour
E46 M3 light blue colour
E36 M3 red

And M4 westbound to A34 j13

Seat Leon Cupra mk1/2 Grey nice wheels
370z with a very nice exhaust setup

A303
Civic type R massive wing black

Sure there were others but everything going in opposite direction to the route I was going excl M4 to J13 A34.

No one blasting it either from what I could see.

Great fun day, if a bit Brass Monkeys out!!!

As mentioned by others, spent as much time walking around the carpark as i did the actual event !!!

The marshals were great too, and we even managed to slip into a poll position spot in the PH Parking (although being large, dirty and diesel we didn't really stand up well to the other lovely stuff in the PH area!!)

Looking forward to a few more Scramble's when the weather is a bit warmer!!!

Ohh and my 22 month old daughter absolutely loved hearing the sound of the cars, so thank you to everyone who brought something tasty out in the middle of winter for her and the rest of us to enjoy and appreciate! She especially loved a 488 and a Cerbera :thumbsup:

Edit, quick pix

We had a great morning if a little cold! Thanks to the PH team for organising the parking area. Lots of very nice cars were parked up in the PH area.

First time I have had the opportunity to take my Dad and son out in my Cerbera at the same time and they both really enjoyed the journey and the event itself.

Look forward to visiting some more PH Sunday Services later on in the year.

I can only echo the above, first time I’ve been to an event at Bicester and I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to one in warmer weather!

Nice to not be the only Jensen-Healey at an event.
