Cult website Petrolicious is home to high quality original automotive videos and articles aimed at classic car enthusiasts. While Petrolicious focuses on the machines, it also investigates the personalities behind them and boasts a dedicated fan following split between the USA and Europe.
For the first time the online phenomenon will come to life on UK soil with the inaugural Petrolicious Drivers’ Meeting, it’s the first time such a Petrolicious event has been held in the UK. Bicester Heritage, the former RAF bomber base turned centre of excellence for the classic car industry, is the location, Sunday May 12 is the date for your diary.

In addition comes a special display area in one of the exhibition hangars next to the Technical Site, inside visitors will find a Petrolicious stage and cinema screen, motoring art displays and selected trade stands and manufacturer displays. Outside in the car park there will be a Drive Tastefully parking area set aside for transport deemed to follow the Petrolicious way of life, plus separate VIP parking for Petrolicious Members.
