Have memories of this place, as far back as I can remember, though I don’t attend anything like as much as I once did (Due to a lack of time). I have spectated and competed here and am still a (Non owning) member of the Bugatti Owners Club, who run Prescott.
It’s fair to say that the facilities at Prescott are second to none and due to the layout, viewing is hard to beat (Cars are in view here longer than at most places). The return road, whereby competing cars can return to the paddock, means that more cars can be entered, since hill action is not interrupted by cars needing to run back down the hill, to the paddock. On a Sunny day, the location is hard to beat and due to the actions of medieval strip farmers, the member cars park is nicely terraced!!
Due to a long standing agreement, the Vintage Sports Car Club hold a meeting every year at Prescott (And they still use the original 1938 Short Course) and I must say this is still very much a favourite of mine and something in which I should very much like to take part, should an eligible (Pre WW2) car ever come my way!!
At the other end of the scale, are the modern racing cars (With all manner and ages of cars in between), with which I am now out of touch but so far as I know, they still out accelerate contemporary F1 cars, up to 100 mph (They used to at any rate); suffice to say they are fast and because you stand closer to the track, than at a circuit, you get a greater impression of speed.
If you would like to sample speed hillclimbing, Prescott is a great place to have a look.
