Today marks a historic day for British motorsport when cars get back on track as Covid-19 lockdown eases. The Bugatti Owners’ Club, owners and operators of Prescott Hill Climb play their part in the celebrations with a private non-competitive event today behind closed doors.
This event will see BOC Members take to the hill in a variety of cars from 9am, but poignantly, the hill will be reopened by BOC stalwart Charles Knill-Jones in a Bugatti. Other cars visiting the hill today include Aston Martins, Ferraris, Alfas, Renaults, Fiats, Subaru and an ex-Stirling Moss Jaguar.
The reopening of motorsport after an enforced shutdown is nothing new for the BOC and Prescott, as the club has experienced this several times before. Notably, the outbreak of World War II in 1939 resulted in activities being suspended until 1946 when the hill returned to action.
