Overview
-

The British have had an affair with Bugatti for decades and perhaps Prescott Hill-Climb in Gloucestershire is the place where that relationship has reached its highlights across the decades. This collection of photographic images captures the brilliance of Bugatti design amid Bugatti blue at Prescott's wonderful natural amphitheatre in the Cotswolds – to which visitors, Bugatti owners, enthusiasts and addicts have travelled from all over the world to gather and to race up the hill.

The author has spent years around old cars, often visiting Prescott and its home to the Bugatti Owners Club – which itself celebrates the 80th anniversary of its base at Prescott in 2018 and, the Club’s own 90th anniversary in 2019.

In this collection of over 200 photographs, much of the masterworks of Molsheim are captured in action and at rest, at the altar of British Bugatti enthusiasm. Herein are wonderful moments and memories of old Bugatti cars, their owners and drivers, and other vintage and classic cars in VS-CC action at this revered location.

This new collection of stunning images, allied to a concise narrative (with assistance from Bugatti experts), should provide the classic car enthusiast with something new to accompany their own memories amid a record of Prescott and the Bugatti Owners Club events and Veteran Sports-Car Club days.
