The Bugatti Owners’ Club, owners and operators of Prescott Speed Hill Climb, is thrilled to announce Cotswold Cheltenham MINI as headline sponsor in support of the Prescott MiniFest, to be held on Saturday 14th May 2022.
As the largest MINI Retailer in the Prescott area, and having previously won the ‘MINI Retailer of the Year’ award successively in both 2018 and 2019, Cotswold Cheltenham MINI is committed in its support of the MINI brand and to enthusiasts of the marque.
The sponsorship agreement between Cotswold Cheltenham MINI and the Prescott MiniFest underlines the vision and values both Cotswold Motor Group and the MINI brand represent, with particular focus being given to celebrating the rich history of the marque whilst looking towards the future. Cotswold Cheltenham MINI looks forward to a successful MiniFest 2022 at Prescott Speed Hill Climb.
As in 2021, you will see countless Minis old and new take to the hill in competition and display runs, all celebrating this iconic British car, in one of the most quintessentially English motorsport venues.
Alongside the display of the latest MINIs from Cotswold Cheltenham MINI in the Paddock you will find world famous Guinness World Record Holder Alastair Moffatt on the hill during the lunchbreak performing his latest stunt show. Featuring classic Minis, this multiple GWR holder will put on a show including recreations of some of his most iconic record attempts, such as the worlds Tightest Parallel Park, which he holds as a current world record and stands at an astounding 7.5cm total gap.
Back in the Paddock, hiding amongst the competition cars on static display, you will find the iconic MoBi-One. This marvel of engineering hasn’t been on public display for the last 25 years, having been recently saved from a barn in London. Registered in 1967 by Morris Bishop, the car used a Mini 1100cc four-cylinder engine and a combination of three steering racks are used to create a four-wheel steer autotest special. In 1968 MoBi-One received an upgrade courtesy of Sir Alec Issigonis, who provided a works 1275cc engine, which was eventually converted to run on propane with a top speed of 120mph! MoBi-One will be on static display only at this year’s event, with plans a foot for a demonstration run at the 2023 MiniFest.
Spectator tickets, competition entries and car club display areas are still available for this year’s event through the Prescott Speed Hill Climb website. www.prescotthillclimb.co.uk
