NEW DATE - PRESCOTT HILL CLIMB
CLASSICS AT PRESCOTT
Sunday 20 September 2020
The Annual Classics at Prescott event is organised by Winchcombe and Cleeve Vale Rotary Clubs and is held at the Bugatti Owners' Club at Prescott, near Cheltenham. Classic Cars are invited to run the famous hill for charity or take part in a static display.
Rennsport will have a stand at this event,
close to trackside and adjoining the Club House.
We would love to see you there.
The event takes place on Sunday 20th September from 10am, when the paddock entries will start their hill runs. When not on the hill these lovely classic cars will be parked in the paddock and can be viewed at close quarters. At the same time there will be a static display of classic cars in the orchard. At lunchtime, a gentle cavalcade of cars will go up the hill so everyone can admire them in motion.
Please note that the Bugatti Owners' Club, in liaison with their governing body, have advised that, in line with other major sporting events, restrictions resulting from Covid-19 mean that no spectators will be allowed at this event. However, we are still able to welcome entrants who Drive the Hill, as well as those who wish to display their classic cars. The organisers expect over 300 cars, drivers and passengers to be present.
Full safety precautions and social distancing measures will be operated, in line with current governmental advice.

- Prescott is situated in the mid-west area of England, in the beautiful Cotswold hills, to the north of Cheltenham and close to the pretty town of Winchcombe. It’s about 100 miles north-west of London.
- In 1937, inspired by a few dedicated Vintage Sports Car Club and Bugatti Owner’s Club members, Prescott House and Estate was acquired for the purpose of creating a permanent hill-climb course.
- The original [‘short’] course was 880 yards, still used today by the VSCC, but the 1127 yards ‘long’ course, introduced in 1960, is the one used now for all other events.
- Proceeds from the event are used by the Rotary Clubs to support local, national and international charities and almost £250,000 has been raised since the event was first run 16 years ago.
