|JEC Hill Climb at Prescott||18th May 2014||Prescott Hill Climb|
For the first time in our history we are holding an event at Prescott Hill Climb near Cheltenham. Set in a beautiful location with views across the Cotswold countryside from the perimeter of the track and recently refurbished Club house.
The Paddock will be a hive of activity as cars line up ready for their run up the hill and then filter through to the carpark after their run. Standard car parking is also available for those who wish to just enjoy the specticle of a Jaguar only day at Prescott, certainly a sight to behold and sound to savour.
Th Club House will be open from 7am to serve breakfast and coffee before providing a two course buffet lunch which can be pre-booked finishing off the day offering afternoon tea and coffee. If the weather is good, why not take advantage of the views and the many idilic picnic spots and enjoy watching the varity of cars go up the hill, perfect sound track to a perfect lunch.
Runs up the hill will need to be pre-booked as space is limited. Runs cost £10 each, you can pre-book up to two runs and request more if you wish. If there is availablitity we will contact those who have indicated more runs up the hill.
