VSCC bid farewell to the 2016 Season with the Winter Driving Tests at Bicester Heritage this weekend

Friday 02 December 2016

Our annual Winter Driving Tests will bring the year to a suitably festive finale, where it will be another bumper day of Club activities at the popular Bicester Heritage tomorrow, Saturday 3 December.
Over 80 Pre-war cars are set to take on organiser Mark Elder’s selection of driving challenges around the atmospheric venue, the last chance for Competitors to accrue those all-important points towards the Club’s many Annual Aggregate Trophies.
Driving Tests are a fun and challenging discipline and often seen as a great introduction to motorsport for the younger member, promoting car control and accuracy in an entertaining and friendly surrounding, so expect to see many of the Club’s youngsters in action.
Spectators are most welcome to attend and entry is free so embrace the wintery conditions and come and admire the Vintage driving skills of our members.
Breakfast and lunch will be available at the venue on the day, which alongside our Winter Driving Tests, will include our traditional MSA Medicals – now in their 27th year – carried out by our team of VSCC Doctors and the Club’s annual Race & Speed Forum, which starts at 2.00pm (CLICK HERE for more information).
There will be a chance to buy your Christmas gifts with a handful of Trade Stands on site, including the Club Display, where you can purchase the Club's new history book, 'A Portrait of the Vintage Sports-Car Club, 1934-2014’ by Tom Pellow, as well as the Club’s 2016 Christmas Card, just in time for the festive season.
