Overview

Prescott Hill Climb, based just outside of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, is home to one of the world's most prestigious motor racing venues. Set in 60 acres of glorious Cotswold countryside, the estate not only provides a beautiful setting for a range of classic car and bike weekends, but also hosts major motor racing championships. The Bugatti Owners Club was established in 1929 for all motoring enthusiasts regardless of what type of vehicle you drive. The Club is based at Prescott and purchased the estate in 1937, converting the muddy, rutted drive into a speed hiil climb in time for the opening rally in April 1938. The 1127 yard course rises over 200 feet via short straights, fast and slow corners and a breathtaking hairpin, with the fastest modern racing cars completing the course in an exciting 36 seconds. The action can be viewed from strategic points along the course as well as from the restaurant terrace. Visitors and competitors alike can enjoy an exhilarating days racing plus vintage cavalcades up the Hill. Whether you are a competitor, a car or bike enthusiast or someone who just likes a day out in beautiful surroundings Prescott is the place for you.

A very laid back atmosphere with a very wide variety of bikes, trikes and outfits 'running the hill'. Excellent value for money and satisfying to know that the proceeds go to charity. The organisation was very good and the stewards very friendly and helpful.

Motorsport, the old fashioned way.Eclectic mix of cars, beautiful grounds. The perfect antidote to modern corporate motorsport.....

The run is excellent very well run. Price isn't a bother as me and my chums just hop the fence. Hehe. I'm local it's allowed. The only problem is the owner of the restaurant. He is very rude and not very respectful of his staff....More

Great family day out, plenty to do and see. Only reason it doesn't get top marks is the entrance fees are a little steep (excuse the pun!), especially if there's a few of you going it soon adds up.

This is a great day out that all the family can enjoy. The only restricted areas are where it might be dangerous. Wander around the pits, eat in the club resturarant, take a picnic.
