REMARKABLE RACERS TAKE TO THE TRACK AT THE SHOW
Dozens of historic competition cars and motorcycles - some over a century old - will head to Bicester Heritage in Oxfordshire on 23-24 June to play a starring role in The Classic & Sports Car Show in association with Flywheel.

Amongst those taking to the demonstration course will be a Bentley 3 Litre Sportsworks car that competed in the 1926 Le Mans 24 Hours, a 1922 Sunbeam Grand Prix prepared for the French GP at Strasbourg and a 1936 Aston Martin 2-Litre Speed Model driven in the 1948 Belgian GP.

Intriguingly tying together the motorsport and wartime themes of the show, the Alvis/Marendaz Routledge Special was built in the early 1950s on an Alvis Firefly chassis that is believed to have been used to deliver secret documents during WW2.

Fittingly in an event that also features spectacular vintage air displays, there will be two aero-engined ‘specials’ on the track. The Fafnir Hall-Scott Special (pictured above) has a floor-shaking, 10,000cc WW1 aero engine, while the Menasco Pirate (pictured below) is powered by a 1929 airplane racing engine.

Simon Taylor’s 1950 HWM Stovebolt Special was raced in 1950 by a 20-year-old Stirling Moss in his first-ever works drive and was crashed by Kirk Douglas in the movie The Racers.

The 1935 Eccles Rapier Special, a supercharged, Lagonda-based single-seater, can arguably lay claim to being the ultimate Rapier, being the only car to win on the Outer, Mountain and Campbell circuits at Brooklands.
