A new Sunday event has been launched at Bicester Heritage, which will offer classic car buying and selling opportunities
Britain’s historical motoring haven, Bicester Heritage, has now started a new car selling event. The heritage complex will launch its Motor Market next weekend as part of its hugely popular Sunday Scramble.
Pitches will be available to anyone wanting to sell a car manufactured before 1990, be it a modern, classic, or vintage machine. Owners wanting to have their cars valued are required to go to Bicester Heritage’s Hagerty Valuation Arena, where cars will be photographed and assessed before being presented with a valuation certificate. The valuation costs £15 and all proceeds go to charity.
The fusion of the Motor Market and the well-attended Sunday Scramble means that the event is attended by genuine enthusiasts. Buying direct from the seller also offers customers a chance to chat about the car’s history, making it a much more personal experience. What’s more, prospective buyers will also have the advantage of test driving on the excellent local roads.
Bicester Heritage’s founder and managing director, Daniel Geoghegan, said: 'The Motor Market at Bicester Heritage will be unique in allowing buyers to see many cars at once, and talk to their owners, but without the pressured environment of an auction hall.
'Buyers don’t even need to have to worry about finding a way to get a car home or finding a specialist for a that little job that would make their new purchase perfect, thanks to the many experts we have on site at Bicester Heritage.'
The first Motor Market takes place along side the next Sunday Scramble on 24 April and any car built before 1990 will be eligible to attend. Entry costs have been set at £20 in advance and £30 on the gate, however tickets are available at a 50 per cent discount for the first Motor Market.
