The organisers of Flywheel at Bicester Heritage – Historic Promotions – have confirmed new dates for the third annual showcase celebrating classic winged and wheeled vehicles. 


Flywheel at Bicester Heritage 2017 will now take place on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June, kick-starting a summer of British motorsport and coinciding with British Armed Forces Day.

Advance tickets are on sale from today (2nd December 2016), with special early-bird pricing being offered for the first time in the event’s history – available until 31st January 2017. Tickets for this live action celebration of historic wings and wheels are the perfect Christmas or New Year gift for any family wanting a fabulous day out.  

Last year’s festival saw hundreds of historic cars, aircraft, motorbikes and military vehicles come alive on the demonstration track and in the sky at the UK’s best preserved Second World War Bomber Station, Bicester Heritage in Oxfordshire. The crowds were joined by Sir Stirling Moss OBE who, as well as signing autographs, was reunited with a host of his race-winning cars from the 1950s and 1960s. 

While the theme is being kept closely under wraps, visitors are guaranteed an event that is even bigger and better than the two that have gone before. Plans are already firmly underway for the 2017 event, with organisers keen to further grow the attractions and increase the number of vehicles on display and demonstration. 

With early-bird ticket prices starting from £20 per adult and £45 per family, organisers have also kept standard advance ticket prices at the same rate as previous years, starting from £23 per adult and £52 per family from February 2017. Each adult ticket still includes free parking and a complimentary souvenir programme. As ever, entry for children under the age of five years is free. 

Richard Grafton, commercial director at Historic Promotions, said: “We believe the authentic wartime backdrop and the unique mix of historic wings and wheels at Flywheel make it one of a kind. We’ve been thrilled by the positive comments from those that attended the event in previous years and, with this support behind us, we are looking to offer even more entertainment in 2017. We’re currently growing the number of attractions and vehicles that will be on display and we have several exciting announcements that will ensure this is the best year to date.”
