Footman James are Bicester Heritage’s exclusive insurance partner and launched this summer at the landmark historic motoring event, Flywheel back in June.
Set as Bicester Heritage’s ten-year anniversary gathering, Flywheel celebrates wings and wheels of all generations, with live automotive displays planned on the private experience track, offering unparalleled access to the sights and smells of classic cars in action.
Flywheel saw a host of motoring marques join the displays along the tree-lined avenues of the unique site for an action-packed weekend, setting the perfect scene for the partnership’s launch.
