With Glastonbury Festival and the Goodwood Festival of Speed happening elsewhere in the South of England, the picturesque Prescott Hillclimb in Gloucestershire held its Mid-Summer Speed Fest over the weekend.
The Gloucestershire venue was in fine fettle.
The event featured a stand-alone round of the hugely popular Midland Hillclimb Championship, alongside the HSA, National Speed and Paul Matty Classic Sports Championships. The event also hosted the second round of the famous Prescott Gold Cup.
After a hectic schedule of consecutive events at Gurston, Shelsley and Loton, a welcome weekend off for the British Hillclimb Championship runners preceded the first visit to Scotland of 2014 to the ever popular Doune Hillclimb, on the edge of The Trossachs, in Stirling.
A rare blast of sunshine at The King of Hills!
Usually any event at ‘The King of Hills’ is complimented by a healthy dose of Scottish rain, but on this occasion the competitors who made the long journey North were greeted by glorious hot, sunny weather and the result was a rout on the record books as drivers took advantage of a hill in fantastic condition.
