The Rally Itinerary

Friday Evening

Pre-War Prescott 2015
Organised and hosted by the Vintage Minor Register

After three visits to Prescott by the VMR, the Register inaugurated Pre-War Prescott in 2011, and the day was immediately a tremendous success.
Pre-War Prescott now forms the centrepiece of our annual Summer Rallies.  VMR Prescott has become famous for its relaxed, friendly, garden party atmosphere.
The day offers the unique opportunity and thrill of being able to drive your own pre-war car up this famous and historic hill, owned and operated
by the Bugatti Owners Club.  All pre-war cars are cordially invited to attend, and a number of one-make clubs and registers have already booked in for the day.

A wide variety of activities and displays is being planned once again, including vintage aircraft displays and a host of trade stands.

During the lunch break, the Sports & Vintage Cup will be awarded to the most meritorious Register member in the last year.

Once again, the designated charity for the day is the RAF Charitable Trust.
There will be a no-reserve auction of spares and automobilia organized by Hereford Vintage Auctions during the lunch break,
with all funds raised to be donated to the Trust.  So please bring along any suitable item that you would like to donate to the auction.

Full catering and a licensed bar will be available throughout the day,
and will feature fine ales from the local Prescott Brewery.

The day will conclude with a Battle of britain Victory BBQ and Dance evening at the Clubhouse on the hill.

A map of Prescott - we will be using the long course (vias Ettore's Bend) in 2015.
Pre-War cars wishing to climb the hill will be parked in the Paddocks.
Spectators' cars and post-war cars will be parked in the Public Car Park.
