ATU fourteen // Historit

historit_intro

For the July AutoTweetUp we have lined up something very special for you. Clear the diary for July 23rd at 6.30pm and bring your pride and joy…

If your impression of car storage is one of simply lines of unused classic cars slumbering under dust covers in discrete barns or industrial units, then join us as we visit Historit and change your opinion.

Located at Bicester Heritage, currently being developed as the UK’s first business campus dedicated to historic motoring and aviation, Historit offers something very different. Setting new standards for vehicle storage, preservation and preparation, Historit occupies the C-Type aircraft shed where the Halifax aircraft was first developed and flown from.

With access to its own private track, Historit is as much about exercising and preparing cars as it is about storing them, highlighting that storage goes beyond simply laying up a car and preservation and preparation for use is vital.

AutoTweetUp members will have the chance to learn about the storage of cars and aircraft and why the properties of this particular hangar, constructed in 1936, make it especially suitable to storing vehicles. There will be a chance to learn more about some of the cars in storage, everything from Group C Le Mans icons to Edwardian “horseless carriages” and how Historit is set to make owning and enjoying a historic car much more straightforward and a more socially engaging experience.

Continuing the social aspect, a large area in front of the hangar will enable all AutoTweetUp members to park together and display the cars they have brought.

As a working venue, housing a large number of valuable and rare vehicles, children unfortunately cannot attend. Historit will be serving donuts coffee and tea. If we have a large take up for this event we will look to provide something like a burger van if people are interested.
