London, Thursday 21 September 2017: A major new event joins the classic calendar for 2018 as Haymarket Media Group – publisher of Classic & Sports Car, the world’s best-selling classic car magazine – announces a new partnership with Bicester Heritage and Historic Promotions, the company behind Flywheel, the festival of classic wings and wheels.
The partnership announced today will lead to the creation of a headline summer enthusiasts’ event, hosted in Oxfordshire by Bicester Heritage – famous as an internationally important heritage motoring and aviation attraction. The Classic & Sports Car Show in association with Flywheel will take place 22-24 June 2018 and is set to become a must-visit vintage motoring and aviation event for serious collectors, enthusiasts and all the family.
Classic & Sports Car magazine and its associated website www.classicandsportscar.com covers everything from mainstream, affordable and modern classics to multi-million-pound exotics, one-offs, prototypes and great racers from around the world – and The Classic & Sports Car Show in association with Flywheel will follow the same theme, with a mouthwatering selection of vehicles from private owners, clubs and dealers on display. The new event takes over from The Classic & Sports Car Show, which made its debut at London’s Alexandra Palace in 2015 and showcased more than £30m-worth of rare classic metal under one roof.
Classic & Sports Car’s Group Head of Content Alastair Clements says: “We’re thrilled to be joining forces with one of the most exciting new events to join the classic calendar in recent years, and look forward to welcoming readers and enthusiasts from across the UK and Europe to the fabulous Bicester Heritage for what promises to be a highlight of next summer for classic fans.”
Haymarket, the international specialist media, technology and live events company, is the owner of some of the world’s most iconic motoring brands including Autocar, What Car? and PistonHeads and already reaches over nine million highly engaged petrolheads every month with its trusted and valued car content.
