The Hillclimb at Prescott

Length: 0.64 miles (1.02km)

Prescott is impressive and winding – a very technical, medium-speed course and is probably the most spectator-friendly course in the UK with many trackside enclosures and most of the course visible from most viewing points.

Heading into the Esses at Prescott Hill Climb, Nr Cheltenham, Gloucs

Off the start and under the bridge (yes there’s a pedestrian bridge over the track), before continuing to build speed around Orchard Corner. Into the tricky Ettmore’s Bend then up to the infamous Pardon hairpin. Then through the trees / the esses before heading to the final long left hander that is Semi-Circle.

Like at Harewood the cars come straight back to the paddock – so you get to see the drivers straight after they finish.

Hill record is 36.35s, Scott Moran 2007

Other Key Information:

Prescott is the home of the Bugatti Owners Club and they have been organising events at the hill since the 1930s. So every event at Prescott includes a class for Bugattis.
