RSL partners with Bicester Heritage for celebratory Flywheel event

RSL, the team behind Radio Le Mans, will be the official in-situ radio and video production service and broadcaster for Bicester Heritage’s ten-year anniversary event: Flywheel on the 17th and 18th of June.

The timing for this historic collaboration could hardly be better, with 2023 marking the centenary of Le Mans.

Born out of the introduction of ‘Special Event Radio’ during the 1980s, Radio Le Mans has been available to listeners at the historic race circuit since 1987, before going global through live streaming. 

RSL has become the voice of the world’s greatest race. RSL provides commentary trackside and online across the world as the authority on sports car racing. 

Its weekly magazine show Midweek Motorsport is unprecedented in its reach and in making the sport accessible to the masses.

Bicester Heritage’s Flywheel event celebrates wings, wheels and motion, with live displays planned on the Experience and Demonstration Track in addition to a fly-in from the sole surviving Bristol Blenheim Bomber.

Flywheel will see a host of classic motoring marques join the displays along the tree-lined avenues of the historic site.

Fans of vintage flight can expect an equally spectacular showcase, with a broad range of historic aircraft set to grace the site’s grass airfield – winding back the years and commemorating the site’s heritage as an RAF Blenheim Bomber training station.

Philip White, Associate Director, Brand and Marketing comments:

“We are thrilled to be partnering with a broadcaster of such repute in the motorsport sector, not only to celebrate 10 years of Bicester Heritage but 100 years of Le Mans too.

“We hope that by collaborating this year, we can capture the magic of Flywheel at Bicester Heritage and collectively introduce a global audience to our beautiful home of historic motoring.”

Eve Hewitt, Managing Director, RSL adds:

“We're honoured to be a part of projects as important as Bicester Motion and Bicester Heritage, which over the last decade have changed the British automotive landscape.

“And we are delighted to have been given the opportunity to take the 10th Flywheel to a global audience.”

Bicester Heritage has created a revolution in historic vehicle ownership. 

Founded in 2013 Bicester Heritage has gone from a standing start to a home for 50 specialist businesses, and growing, with a collective turnover of over £50m, making it the largest player in the industry and set to grow exponentially with a global reach. 

The unique ecosystem of businesses based at the beautiful 444-acre former WW2 RAF Bomber Training Station acts as ‘marina-like’ cluster, promoting skills and expertise, employment, qualified customer footfall, shared business incubation and aggregate growth. The site is all about driving the future of the past.

The former RAF Bicester site on which Bicester Heritage is now based, is of national historic importance. Neglected for the best part of 40 years, it was added to Historic England’s ‘At Risk Register’ in 2008 and designated the most 'at risk' of all Defence Estates in the UK. 

Since Bicester Heritage’s tenure, over 95% of the buildings have been delicately restored or re-activated for modern business use, with the site now held as a national exemplar of constructive conservation by Historic England.

The time-warp base is truly unmatched in evocative character and an active airfield and test track complete its dynamic operation. 

Bicester Heritage is a component part of Bicester Motion, an incomparable visitor attraction which will offer an authentic collection of dynamic and inclusive visitor experiences, less than an hour from London.
