Prescott 80th Anniversary and Bugatti Festival

80 years and counting, the Prescott Hillclimbing Gloucestershire venue will celebrate this landmark occasion with a special reunion of former hill record holders.

Hill-Climbing Heroes

The list of confirmed attendees reads like a who’s who of Hill-climbing: from 1960s pacesetter and multiple Hillclimb champion David Boshier-Jones, Martyn Griffiths, David Grace, David Franklin, Alister Douglas-Osborn to Chris Cramer who plans to compete in the 1985 British Hillclimb Championship winning Gould 84G and six-time Hillclimb champion Scott Moran also competing in his Gould, which is the most winning car in British Hillclimb history. The ladies record holders will also be well represented with former record holders Joy Rainey, Margaret Blankstone-Schoiber, Sandra Tomlin and Sue Young attending.

The latter two will be competing in their modern single seater Pilbeam and Gould respectively. Many of the racers will be re-united with suitable cars from their era, either for a parade or for full-on competition.

Strong Field

The event will feature a strong field of 150 cars on track, including a special class for Bugattis. The event is supported by a round of the Bugatti Owners’ Club Aldon Classic Championship and New Barn Cheltenham Land Rover Specialists “B” Licence Championship.

Just like the first event back in 1938, Prescott remains access all areas. As motoring enthusiast Nick Mason said ‘It’s club motor sport at its best, where visitors can mingle with the cars and speak to the drivers’.

The Prescott 80th Anniversary will be a relaxed day of competition featuring a full racing paddock, a strong nod to its history and some of the most delectable Bugatti’s in the UK.

First car on the track approx. 8.30am: Scheduled finish time 5.30pm.
