Prescott is in the mid-west area of England, in the beautiful ‘Cotswold Hills’, just north of the historic city of Cheltenham, and about 100 miles North West of London.
A historic motorsport venue and home of the Bugatti Owners Club – formed in 1929 – that purchased the site in 1937 to test their cars. They’ve been testing, racing and entertaining with their cars ever since. (Lots of other motorsport marques use the hill too, of course)
For the last 30 years we have attended the VSCC August hill climb at Prescott. It is a magical event like no other. A paddock full of beautiful and exotic pre-war cars, a museum full of Bugattis , a hill climb with a return road for non stop action and the all important orchard for an idyllic picnic. Weather permitting of course. There is also a very good restaurant and separate bar and burger stand if you don’t feel picnic inclined. Presott runs lots of other hill climbs for a variety of clubs and cars. You can even have a go yourself with the proper preparation. Parking in the orchard is predictably on grass. There is a slight slope but nothing serious. If you attend August VSCC on Sunday and are in a non VSCC car you will have to park in an adjoining field which is steep and usually with fairly long grass. You have been warned
