Two-day spectacle celebrates French and Italian cars

Where: Prescott Hill Climb, Gotherington, near Cheltenham

When: Saturday and Sunday, May 25-26

'La Vie en Bleu' - a spectacular two-day event including a celebration of fine French and Italian cars - returns to Prescott Hill Climb this weekend (May 25-26).

The event at the venue near Cheltenham will include action-packed motor racing and a host of entertainment.

Bugattis from around the world will make a pilgrimage to Prescott to mark the 90th anniversary of the Bugatti Owners' Club including vintage Bugattis, several Veyrons, the Chiron plus its 1990s cousin the EB110, many of which will take to the historic hill climb course over the weekend.

First car on the track at approximately 8.30am both days. Scheduled finish time around 5.30pm.

The Bugatti Trust will join in the festivities with a very special car on display for their Summer Exhibition whilst other historic cars can be seen, some for the first time ever.

La Vita Rossa will again celebrate all things Italian. What will your favourite be? Maybe a Maserati, Ferrari, Lamborghini or that most spectacular of all Fiats, the Beast of Turin.

There will also be non-stop themed entertainment from 'One Man Frank', a tribute to crooner Frank Sinatra, the incredible Oyster 'Street' Opera and The Hot Club 1930s gypsy jazz band, plus there's Prescott's Can Can girls, the fabulous comedy stilt walkers and swing dancers.

Children under 16 go free with a paying adult. See the Prescott Hillclimb website for more details of ticket prices.
