Friends of Prescott


Friends of Prescott was formed by the Bugatti Owners' Club in 2008. Its specific purpose is to raise funds for sympathetic improvments to the facilities, estate and hillclimb across our wonderful 65 acre Prescott estate. 

Since its formation in 1929, the Bugatti Owners' Club has developed and refined a tradition of providing great motorsport at our beautiful Cotswold setting.  However, with this comes a responsibility; to ensure the continuation of this super location, to give enjoyment to the Club's existing supporters and to future generations of motor sport enthusiasts. Friends exists to satisfy this need by raising funds through Friends events, sponsorship & bequests and from our shop which is based adjacent to the startline in our paddock.

Friends is manned by volunteers, some Bugatti Owners' Club members, some not. Each is passionate about Prescott and keen to donate their experience, enthusiasm and commitment to provide enjoyable social experiences to all visitors, of all ages and ability.

Because we are volunteers, this significantly benefits our fund raising. No Friends funds will be used until authorised by the governing Council of the Bugatti Owners' Club and only for specific qualifying projects.

If this has enthused you and you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact us on for more information.

Friends of Prescott has already made its mark!

Clubhouse Phase 1 - 2012/13

Many fundraising events and donations raised around £120,000 towards this project. This, along with a generous contribution from the VSCC, allowed us to complete the initial phase of the Clubhouse refurbishment. This is a great facility for both the Club's competitive and social events. This facility was completed and first opened in its refurbished form in March 2013. 

Paddock Toilet Block Refurbishment - 2016/17

While less glamorous, the nevertheless essential refurbishment of the Paddock toilet block was completed for the begining of the 2017 season. The project was given a massive boost with a contribution of around £50,000 from the Friends fundraising efforts.

Clubhouse Phase 2 - 2017/18

The Clubhouse Phase 2 project is now completed! Friends fundraising efforts have contributed over £80,000 to this project which will finish off this magnificent facility, unrivalled at any other venue in our sport. The opening of the new frontage on the Clubhouse was conducted by Stuart Webster and took place on the opening day of the 2018 season, and what a wonderful occaision it was.

"Friends" Paddock Visitor Centre

Friends of Prescott is located in the visitor centre, opened in 2015 and located in the lower paddock, adjacent to the start line.


Our visitor centre is the focal point for our activities at events and is "open for business" at every opportunity throughout the year.

The visitor centre is the means for us to raise funds from the sale of items donated such as motoring memorabilia, clothing, books, tools, models and artwork. Also, the shop is the base for our raffles for prizes "that money can't buy". We regularly hold raffles to win rides up the hill in some magnificant supercars including the Lamborghini Huracan and the magnificent Bugatti Chiron!

Everyone is welcome to come to the visitor centre, have a browse, a chat, buy something or bring along donations that can help boost our fund-raising work.
