PRESCOTT BIKE FES­TI­VAL

IT’S PARTY TIME AT THE FA­MOUS HILL CLIMB VENUE

Classic Bike (UK) - - EVENTS -

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
