Wolseley Hornet Special Club

Encouraging the use and the preservation of these Special cars

Date: 19th  to 21st July 2019

Fresh off the press news, 28 Hornets, even larger marquee and a new location to enable the cars to be parked together on the bottom paddock roadway

A unique motoring event for all pre-war car owners. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere among old friends and new.  Prescott is owned and operated by the Bugatti Owners Club and the event is being hosted by the Vintage Minor Register.  Untimed climbs will be available throughout the day for all pre-war cars – saloons included.  No racing license, helmets or flameproof overalls are required, there is no scrutineering and you can take passengers including children up the hill.  

Location: Prescott House, Prescott, Cheltenham, Gloucs GL52 9RD

The club have been attending this event for some years and it gets better and better. We have an exclusive parking area "Wolseley Way" with Club Gazebo, bring parts you would like to sell, enjoy the thrill of driving the Championship Hill without the need for racing overalls or crash hat. The weekend begins with a dinner on Friday night at The Hilton Puckrup Hotel and accommodation for those requiring it. Saturday is the Hill Climb and on Sunday an organised run through the Cotswolds.
