Speed Hill climbing is one of the oldest forms of motorsport, with the earliest events taking
place in the late 19th century in the UK and Europe. The sport follows a very simple format
which hasn't changed since its inception; all vehicles are timed from point A to point B from
a standing start. In 1947 the RAC formalised speed hill climbing in the UK with the start of
the British Hill climb Championship (the first such championship in British Motorsport) and
the championship is still going strong to this day.
The 17 round series runs from Scotland to Devon and from the Channel Islands to Northern
Ireland and features a huge variety of cars from humble saloons through to F1-engined,
purpose built single-seaters running within a class structure. Come and see the fastest cars
and drivers on what is often the deciding round of the Championship.

The Prescott Gold Cup is open to all members of the Bugatti Owners’ Club. At the beginning of
the season times are set for each class. Competitors who beat the target time for his or her class
by the greatest margin over the three national events, wins the accolade. This is the decider!
