See inside the workshops and showrooms at the restored historic buildings of the former RAF Bicester, explore the unique site and take in its evocative atmosphere. Taking place on a Sunday, this event encourages historic motoring enthusiasts to get involved and bring their pre-1990 vehicle to join the eclectic display. From commercials to motorcycles, pre-War, veterans and modern classics, the mix is astonishing and ever changing. Nestled in-between the 1920s RAF buildings and tree-lined avenues, this location has a filmset quality and a buzz that is truly unique. Family friendly and laid back, the Scramble is a wonderful way to while away the hours on a Sunday in the company of some spectacular machines at the best-preserved WW2 RAF Bomber Station in the country.

Drive it Day - Cardigan Classic Car Club

Newcastle Emlyn
11am
The run will commence from the market town of Newcastle Emlyn at 11.00am. It will follow a very picturesque route to Lampeter, which must be the smallest university town in the UK. From there we will head north to the villages of Tregaron and Pontrhydfendigaid, then onwards to Devil's Bridge. The distance so far will be 47 miles, and we should arrive circa 12.30 for lunch at The Two Hoots cafe. The Two Hoots cafe is situated at the upper terminus of The Vale of Rheidol railway. This steam railway must be one of the best tourist attractions in Wales. The trains run from Aberystwyth up to Devil's Bridge, a distance of 12 miles climbing almost 700 feet in the process. the journey takes about 1 hour and is absolutely magnificent. The engines really have to work for their living to make the gradient. Conversely they have to descend very cautiously, otherwise they might end up in the sea at Aberystwyth!! The trains park up at Devil's Bridge for about 1 hour before descending, and are available for very close inspection and chats with the drivers. Devil's Bridge itself is famous for the three historic bridges built literally on top of one another over many hundreds of years. They cross a spectacular gorge and waterfall. Time permitting we plan to drive our convoy of cars from Devil's Bridge down onto the sea front at Aberystwyth, where we can park and chat to visitors to the town. Fingers crossed for the weather. Finally there will be the drive back towards Cardigan for most of us. This will be along the coast road running in close proximity to the sea with some spectacular views on the run down to the jewel of a town which is Aberaeron. This will be about 30 miles.

International Laverda Owners Club - Charity Ride it Day

Classic Motor Hub, Bibury
10am till 3pm
I'm delighted to say that the proposed Ride It Day is now a reality! The event will take place on Saturday 16th May 2020 between 10am and 3pm at the Classic Motor Hub, Bibury. As well as room for over 1,000 motorcycles, the Classic Motor Hub has a number of special guests already signed up, some interesting displays planned and a number of spaces available for Motorcycle clubs. Whilst the main purpose of this event is for riders to get out and use their classic, vintage and high-performance motorcycles on a lovely May day, we are also hoping that with your help we can raise a sizeable chunk of money for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance, who will be in attendance. Thames Valley Air Ambulance are a charity providing emergency medical services by air and land to patients within the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. Their paramedics, doctors and pilots are highly trained and ready for any eventuality. They work together as a team, giving you the best chance when the worst happens. Last year, they were called out 2,670 times; that's an average of seven callouts each and every day of the year. They receive no government or lottery funding, relying entirely on donations from the public to provide life-saving services. The Classic Motor Hub has agreed to donate at least £3.00 from every £5.00 entry to the Thames Valley Air Ambulance, as well as money raised from fundraising activities on the day.
