The ever-popular Autumn Classic event at the famous Prescott Speed Hill Climb will once again be all-American Stars and Stripes weekend celebrating the biggest, brightest, and brashest cars this side of the pond. Saturday and Sunday 5 and 6 October 2013 will see special displays by American car clubs alongside USA-themed entertainment while competitors in a range of national championships tackle the 1127-yard course set deep in the glorious Gloucestershire countryside.
Special displays will include American car clubs and motorcycles from Pontiacs, Mustangs, Cadillac’s, and Chevys to Flatheads, Hotrods, Indians, Harleys and Custom Choppers. There will be a welcome return of the Vintage Hot Rod Association and the National Chopper Club. Many more fascinating American vehicles are confirmed, including a 1934 Ford Hot Rod, a 1934 Transam, a 1968 Transam, a 1934 Model 40 Phaeton UXB 402, Donald Trump's original stretch Cadillac, a 1969 Cadillac, a 1968 Mustang, a '57 Chevy, a 1939 Hudson, a 1939 Plymouth, a 1923 Ford T Bucket and a 1964 GMC. Both the Orchard and Paddock will feature dedicated areas for American cars.
Meanwhile the paddock will be rocking with the Birmingham Blues Brothers (Saturday) and popular rockabilly band “The Bravo Boys” (Sunday), plus vocalist Michael Ian Brown performing (both days) a selection of American 1950’s jukebox classics like Elvis, Ritchie Valens, Bill Haley & His Comets, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, the Beach Boys, Johnny Cash and more.
Back by popular demand, we have the oldest surviving Wall of Death “The Demon Drome” the original 1920's motordrome where daredevil riders defy gravity and perform the craziest of feats, using their 1920s Indian motorcycles just inches from your eyes.
Plus New for 2013, beware of the comic capers from Haurel and Lardy, the leading Laurel and Hardy look-a-like double act in Europe, if not the World - who will be using many of the props made famous in the comedy duo's films including the original Ford Model T car – you might even end up staring in their show.
Our regular Vegas Show Girls are renowned for bringing their glitz and glamour to our events, and this is no exception. They will be swapping their feathers for flapper dresses and performing the 1920’s Charleston, Gatsby style.
