"The A-Series engine reaches something of a landmark this year with the 70th anniversary of the first car it powered – the Austin A30 – being launched. And to celebrate the fact, Bicester Heritage is hosting a free event for cars powered by this wonderfully long-lived power unit on 25 September. Like all Bicester Heritage events, this one promises to have some fantastic cars on site – there’ll be a display of relevant cars on the central avenue at Bicester Heritage. The organisers are hoping to see everything from Minis and Minors to Austin Healeys and perhaps even early Lotus Sevens. And there’s another moment to celebrate too. The on-site brewery and home to previous Assemblies is launching a 1.275% beer – itself a tribute to the iconic 1275 A-Series engine."
