Kevin Costello: "This partnership has real horsepower."
The partnership will see the creation of a major new headline event in the motor enthusiasts’ calendar, building on the success of Flywheel (which has just celebrated its third year) and hosted in Oxfordshire by Bicester Heritage - the national centre for historic motoring enterprise. Haymarket will partner with Bicester Heritage and Flywheel - produced by Historic Promotions - to develop the new event, called: The Classic & Sports Car Show in association with Flywheel.
The event will take place in June 2018 and is set to become a major new must-visit historic motoring event for serious collectors, like-minded enthusiasts and all the family, says Haymarket.
Haymarket CEO Kevin Costello says: “This partnership has real horsepower. Our track record in motoring media means we reach millions of petrolheads every month. Bicester Heritage has the ideal historic setting and Historic Promotions have built something unique with their wings and wheels experience, Flywheel. Together we will create an event that will come to define the popular heritage motoring experience.”
Bicester Heritage Managing Director Daniel Geoghegan says: “Bicester Heritage is about the future of the past and has at its heart a vision to secure a robust and dynamic future for historic motoring for everyone who enjoys historic vehicles. Partnering with Haymarket - and building on our established relationship with Historic Promotions through Flywheel - provides a wonderful platform for us to create a new way to bring thousands of enthusiasts together in the enjoyment of historic vehicles.”
Historic Promotions Commercial Director Richard Grafton adds: “We specialise in understanding the way to create and blend content together from the classic motoring, motorsport, aviation and military sectors, making live experiences which deliver as much to specialist collectors as they do to excited families. We’re really looking forward to working with Haymarket and Bicester Heritage to develop this exciting event combining two great brands in one superlative location for the perfect weekend!”
As well as Classic & Sports Car, the event will be supported by Haymarket’s Autocar and PistonHeads.
