Hagerty’s RADwood UK celebrates 80s and 90s automotive excess at Bicester Heritage on Saturday 2nd September

Hagerty’s RADwood UK is an event that celebrates the 80s and 90s car culture in all forms, from 80s tuner wide-arched powerhouses to 90s modified cars and Yuppie stockbroker favourites.

While there are many events to celebrate classic cars, few honour the wonderfully creative 80s and 90s, when bright colours, great music and expressing individuality through what you wore and what you drove was the order of the day.

RADwood was born in the USA in 2017 to celebrate the fabulous cars, trucks, and bikes from 1980-1999.

Hagerty took stewardship in March 2022 to build on the company’s purpose to save driving and car culture and to bring a new element of car show coolness to global auto enthusiasts.

And that coolness is very diverse, too. All cars registered in the 80s and 90s are welcome, regardless of what they are, making RADwood the only show where you might see a Vauxhall Nova displayed next to a Porsche 959.

This year’s RADwood UK will be bigger and better than ever, with hundreds of display cars, period-themed activations and an exciting new collaboration with Hot Wheels which sees the Hot Wheels Legends Tour UK taking place at the 2023 RADwood UK event.

The Hot Wheels Legends Tour UK presents modified cars competing to be chosen as the next Hot Wheels diecast model – the prize being a 1:64 scale model of the winning car produced and sold around the world.

Judging the 2023 UK Legends Tour live at RADwood will be a panel of experts handpicked by Hagerty and Hot Wheels, including avid car collector Paul Cowland, Abigayle Andre from TV show Repair Lot and Richard Porter from Sniffpetrol and leading automotive podcast Smith and Sniff.

To help them make the final decision, the judges will be joined by Craig Callum, Design Manager for Hot Wheels Vehicles.

Mark Roper, Managing Director of Hagerty International, said:

“RADwood UK is an event unlike any other, and has been described as a Goodwood Revival for the 80s and 90s.
“We’ll have hundreds of cars on display, great entertainment and hosting the Hot Wheels Legends Tour at RADwood will truly make this a show car enthusiasts won’t want to miss.”

Tickets for RADwood UK start at just £25 and, as with all Hagerty UK events, the entry price is per car rather than per person, making it a great value day out for friends and family.
