About the Event
Rallying, despite being strongly associated with Welsh forests and mud, has a firm place in the history of Prescott Speed Hill Climb, with the hill having hosted the RAC Rally several times throughout the 1950’s. October 3rd 2021 will see the hill and Bugatti Owners Club (owners and operators of Prescott Hill Climb) pay tribute to the awe-inspiring sport of rallying, its drivers, its co-drivers and obviously the cars.
The event will feature rally cars from the early 1950’s right up to modern day machinery, taking to the hill in tribute to their predecessors from times of past, as a fully timed competitive event. The classes and paddock will be split into decades, allowing visitors to quite literally ‘walk through time’ for the history of rallying.
Already confirmed to attend Rallye Prescott is the Austin A40 driven by internationally famous female rally driver Pat Moss and co-driver Ann Wisdom on the 1959 Rally Monte Carlo. The pair eventually took the car to win the Ladies Trophy and placed 10th overall on this widely respected event, finishing just behind George Parkes and Philip Wilson in their Jaguar Mark II’s.
Entries are now invited for the inaugural Rallye Prescott, with classes suitable for rally cars of all eras, from pre-1950’s to modern day. Entry fees start at only £140 for Bugatti Owners’ Club Members or £160 for members of invited clubs, which includes iconic rallying clubs, such as HRCR, BTRDA and the Roger Albert Clark Rally Motor Club. The event will run on a Motorsport UK Hill Climb permit, which sadly means, co-drivers will not be able to take to the hill. Regardless of this, Motorsport UK Rally Competition Licenses will be valid for all drivers taking part.
Spectator tickets for this event are now available to purchase online through the Prescott Speed Hill Climb website, at £15 per person or free of charge for BOC members, with under 16s free.
