Brightwells’ first Bicester sea­son drew to a close with a strong, rea­son­ably eclec­tic of­fer­ing that mixed pre-war cars with later cars, with ev­ery­thing from projects to im­mac­u­late show cars in­cluded.

Top price of the day was £134,200 paid for a glass­fi­bre-bod­ied 1976 Fer­rari 308 GTB orig­i­nally sup­plied to Aus­tralia, and im­ported by spe­cial­ist Foskers in 2014, but for those with more limited funds there was plenty to choose from, in­clud­ing sev­eral Land Rovers, a For­mula 250 sin­gle-seater and a sel­dom-seen Au­tovia, which went on to make a very healthy £82,500.

All-in-all a good end to Brightwells’ Bicester oper­a­tions for 2017, and it re­turns to its Leomin­ster base for its clas­sic and vin­tage sale on 29 Novem­ber.
