The Prescott Vintage Speed Hill Climb takes place at the home of the Bugatti Owners Club in the heart of the very picturesque rolling Cotswold Hills in South Central England. Prescott Hill has been an active motorsports venue for 80 years! The site was purchased in 1937 by the Bugatti owners club, but all events are run under the auspices of the The Vintage Sports-Car Club. The VHRA also run their annual Gow! Hill Climb event at this venue. The VSSC event predominately features British and European vehicles, but there were a few American vehicles both in competition and on the showfield.
