Here Are Some Of The Confirmed Cars For The First Petrolicious Drivers’ Meeting
The first Petrolicious Drivers’ Meeting is just a month away now, and we’re excited for you to join us at Bicester Heritage for a day dedicated to tasteful cars and the people that they inspire. We wouldn’t be able to put on an event like the Drivers’ Meeting without your collective enthusiasm, and we’ve made sure to give it more than one outlet; whatever your preference—lithe aluminum-bodied Italian sports cars to Group B homologation specials to classic F1 machines—you’ll find it represented in our curated group of show cars.

General attendance tickets are available for purchase here for £12.50, and remaining tickets will be sold at the gate for £20.00. Petrolicious Members and kids under 16 get in free.
Below is a small sampling of the cars that will be on display at the upcoming Petrolicious Drivers’ Meeting on May 12th, and between the pre-war Bentleys, 20th century supercars like the F40 and XJ220, rally legends like the Audi Sport Quattro S1 and Renault 5 Turbo 2, paragons of luxury like the Mercedes-Benz 600, and examples of beautiful functional forms like an ex-works Alfa Romeo GTA and a TZ, we’re confident that you’ll get to meet a few of your favorites in the metal at Bicester.
The group of cars does not discriminate based on country of origin, but being that it’s England and all, you can expect a few extra special domestic attendees, like a rare Williams FW04 with its matching transporter from 1975—the first of many team haulers bearing the markings of Frank Williams, who’s name has been involved in the sport for 50 years now—as well as a brand-new Morgan Plus 4 celebrating the company’s 110th anniversary. We’ll also be dedicating a slice of the show space to Zagato-bodied cars from all eras to mark the coachbuilder’s 100th birthday.
A few Petrolicious film stars will be joining the group as well, so if you’re tired of freshly-restored early 911s, want to check out a classic rotary-powered oddball that starts with “Ro” instead of “RX,” or have a soft spot for 365 GTB/4 Daytonas (rightfully so), Alan Drayson’s Porsche 911S Targa, Martin Buckley’s NSU Ro 80, and Matthew Lange’s Ferrari 365 GTB/4 will be in the mix alongside others from our Made to Drive series of weekly films.
