The Bugatti Owners’ Club, owners and operators of Prescott Speed Hill Climb, are pleased to announce Prescott Historique will be welcoming the iconic BRM V16 on Saturday 27th May 2023.
Prescott Historique will celebrate the history and heritage of hill climbing annually, with a full competitive meeting paying tribute to the iconic bikes and cars from for over nine decades.
One of the highlights of this year’s event will be the wonderful V16 BRM taking to the Hill for demonstration runs throughout the event. BRM was founded in the 1940s by Raymond Mays CBE, whose post-war vision was to boost British prestige by creating a British Grand Prix car capable of beating and taking on the world; a vision which gave birth to the BRM. Mays was a regular competitor at Prescott Speed Hill Climb, having clinched the inaugural British Hill Climb Championship title at the venue in 1947 driving his beloved ERA R4D.
Alongside BRM, we will welcome a number of ERAs to the meeting to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the car manufacturer which was also founded by Raymond Mays CBE. English Racing Automobiles was founded in 1933 and raced competitively at the highest levels of motor racing from 1934 until 1952. Prescott Historique will pay special tribute to this manufacturer, with cars taking to the Hill for competition and demonstration runs, and a static display in the Paddock for everyone to enjoy.
This competitive event will welcome over 150 cars and bikes from the early 1900s through to 1990, treating visitors to a real step-back through time at Gloucestershire’s only pre-war motorsport venue.
Off track, visitors will be welcome to peruse a wonderful trade village, featuring model car and book sellers, a number of local charities raising funds and, as ever, be invited to enjoy hot breakfasts and lunches in the Clubhouse, which is open to all, alongside the fully stocked bar featuring local ciders and the well-known Prescott Ales.
Competition entries, spectator tickets and car club display tickets are already open and on sale through the Prescott Speed Hill Climb website. www.prescotthillclimb.co.uk
