Home of the legendary Prescott Hill Climb, the festival takes place this weekend, Sunday 12th April, at the Bugatti Owners' Club, Prescott Hill, Gotherington, Gloucestershire, in the heart of the Cotswolds.
The hill climb itself has been taking place since 1938, and the festival includes a packed schedule of events, activities and attractions to keep you and the family entertained. Not least more than 100 rare racing motorcycles in the Paddock Specials, from a 1914 Triumph Roadster and vintage machines from the 1920s and 1930s, to sought-after modern classics and state-of-the-art Superbikes.
Although tickets to 'Run the Hill' yourself are now sold out, there's plenty of things going on for a fantastic day out. A garage full of celebrity riders will be joining in the fun, led by four-times world superbike champion (and 'King of the Jungle') Carl 'Foggy' Fogarty, Charley Boorman, nine-times British supermoto champion Chris Hodgson, John Reynolds, Nick Sanders, David Hailwood and, erm, world darts champ Andy 'The Viking' Fordham.
The Carole Nash Crew will be on hand, too, giving away goodie bags and balloons, posing for selfies and spreading the word about two of our hottest new products for 2015 – Rider Cover*, which covers you even when you ride someone else's bike (with permission!), and 'Bikers Only' Car insurance**, which guarantees bikers a better deal on your car insurance. If that isn't enough we're also offering the chance to win £250 off your next Carole Nash bike insurance policy in our free prize draw giveaway†.
If that's not enough to keep you busy, there are over 100 high quality exhibitors for you to stock up on the latest biking gear (or bikes!), a jaw-dropping performance from the Dave Coates Stunt Show, plus interviews, demos and live music. If you arrive early enough, you can even tuck into an early bird breakfast at a special price, and treat yourself to some great grub throughout the day.
Gates open at 8.30am on Sunday with the track action kicking off at 10am. The show closes at 5pm. Tickets cost £12 in advance for the day or £15 on the gate. Children under 16 get in free.
