Owner description: 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.

The variety of classic cars, the Bugattis, the club house and going up the Hill in my own car was great

Great weather (on the Sunday), a fantastic atmosphere, a car park to cherish and drool over. Superb racing and paddock access - what more could you wish for Pre war vintage car racing mecca could be another description...

We have just been to the Autumn All American meet at Prescott. What a great day! Very well organised from start to finish. There was so much to see, the time trials were great to watch, the refreshments were good and the sun was shining, what more could you want. Looking forward to 2015's events.

Set among the rolling Cotswold hills, this race circuit is second to none. Watched my brother in law racing his Porsche, great fun and good value.

Went to the hill climb with the family - it's a great place to go with family. The cafe is busy and so is the main lower part of the course, so take a picnic and picnic blanket and wander up the hill to get a great view of the cars coming up the hill.

What a fantastic place after living so close for years this was my first visit and it was worth the wait and the time spent visiting the site. We were part of a mixed car club meet with Morgan Cars and our Jaguar XK/XKR Club plus a huge selection of exotic and vintage cars and motor cycles which made a... More

Dear Paul, Glad to hear you had such a great time at Prescott Breakfast Club. Just to let you know that we run Breakfast Clubs in addition to the days we are allowed to run on the hill - like many motorsport venues we can only run a certain number of events on the Hill Climb each year. The good... More

I love the classic days here with all those wonderful smells of Castrol R oil from the vintage racers along with sounds of a bygone mechanical era. I like the open paddock roaming where you can marvel at the cars while they are being prepped for the time trial - the starts are a laugh!

the buzz, the vintage cars, the photo opportunities. The setting in the rolling Cotswold hills, a good cafe/bar and depending on the event lots of sideshows

Went to VSCC Hill Climb at Prescott - great day out with the family - lovely vintage sports cars all around you, good places to view the action and you're surrounded by that heady smell of good ol' petrol. Autojumble where you can buy bits for your vintage motor and lots of enthusiasts!
