We are thrilled to announce that Luftgekühlt will be crossing the Atlantic and landing at Bicester Heritage, Oxfordshire, UK on Sunday July 29, 2018.
#LuftGB will be our first overseas event and together with our motoring and racing friends from across the pond, we will be channeling the informal, fun spirit of the early versions of Luftgekühlt to tell a new Luft story. There is a wealth of incredible Porsche history in the UK, and we will be bringing out some of the greats of the air-cooled era – more on that to come!
Our venue for this event is the exceptional Bicester Heritage development, a former WW2 RAF Bomber Training Station. As the only hub for historic motoring of its type and scale in the world, and with over 35 specialist motoring businesses onsite, Bicester has a lot of heart. Its aesthetic, grit and heritage will frame the Luftgekühlt story in a perfectly British way.
Like past shows, our first overseas foray will feature a blend of curated, invite-only rarities and ticketed enthusiasts’ cars. There will be a limited number of slots to fill within the venue, and they will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
We have been totally humbled and blown away by the passion and support for our events Stateside and we are looking forward to sharing the love with our community of friends in the UK. We hope to see you there!
As you know Luft events tend to sell out pretty quickly, so please get your tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Tickets are per person and must be bought online in advance as we cannot guarantee sales on the day. Don’t forget to bring a print out or have it ready for scanning on an electronic device at the gate.
Bringing your air-cooled Porsche?
We hope you will! If you are arriving in an air-cooled Porsche we would like to invite you to park in the main event space to complete the experience. There are limited slots available within the venue, and will be ticketed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Where can I park?
In addition to the ticketed parking within the Luftgekühlt display, there is a designated Porsche-only parking zone, plus ample general admission parking. This is included in the ticket price and is available to Porsche and non-Porsche vehicles. You will be entering an active airfield and it is almost certain your car and household insurance will not cover you here. Please proceed with caution and observe the 10mph speed limit.
Is there a minimum age to enter the event?
Everyone is welcome – anyone 15 and under gets in free but they will still need a ticket, so please remember to register them via the booking portal.
