PRESCOTT BIKE FESTIVAL
IT’S PARTY TIME AT THE FAMOUS HILL CLIMB VENUE
Re-scheduled original dates, from the its Prescott weather-hit Bike Festival may lack the scale and glamour of Goodwood, but it’s a motorcycle-only do, it costs just £15 to get in on the day and there’s plenty to interest the classic fan.
Saturday is dedicated to electric vehicles and the action on the hill climb gets started on Sunday, so that’s the day to go for most of us. Club and trade displays include offerings from
The Brackley Festival of Motorcycling, the Kettle Club, the Gloucestershire branch of the Norton Owners Club and Brough Superior, while David Hailwood will be laying on a special Mike Hailwood display. In the paddock, motorcycling’s mad professor Allen Millyard will be displaying some of his creations among a sea of classic, custom and racing machines. Check out the only known survivor from the London Machinist Company’s output: a 1903 Royal Sovereign. On the hill, classic bikes in action include a 1962 Honda RC163 250 replica, an ex-alberto Pagani 1972 MV Agusta F750 works racer, and Jean-phillipe Ruggia’s 1994 factory Aprilia RSV250. prescottbikefestival.co.uk
