Remember when PistonHeads was all just fields (of TVRs) and you had to use dial-up to access it? Much has changed since 1998, and in 2023 we're marking our 25th anniversary to prove it.

We're celebrating the best cars made over the last 25 years, and we want you to be part of it. And you can do just that, by joining us at the PH25 anniversary party at Bicester Heritage on Saturday 12th this August.

Hosted at the historic former WW2 RAF bomber station in Oxfordshire, it's going to be our biggest event ever. Expect the broadest hand-picked car displays to date encompassing sports cars, hot hatches, saloons, track cars, supercars and more exotica and rarities. The displays will feature alongside an outdoor cinema to premiere our almighty PH25 finale video, the biggest congregation of our Readers' Cars projects ever, show awards and much more besides.

Tickets are limited and our early-bird rate will expire on March 31st (unless we sell out sooner) so book yours today. Buy your tickets by the 17th March and you'll automatically be entered into a draw to win an Auto Finesse Ultimate Car Care Kit, worth £227.95.

Display your car

Once you’ve bought your tickets, you can apply to display your car at the event. We have the following zones, that you can apply to be in: Sports cars, hot hatches, saloons (including estates and coupes), track cars, supercars, Readers' Cars (for those of you with Readers' Cars threads in the forums) and exotic and rare cars that fall outside of our PH25 categories. If you have a car that's suitable then please apply here and we’ll be in touch!
