The Vintage Hot Rod Association presents:

GOW! Speed Hill Climb

24th - 26th August 2018

The VHRA are pleased to announce that they are returning to Prescott Hill for the annual running of GOW! over the August Bank Holiday in 2018. This event is open exclusively to members of the VHRA and their invited guests. With the famous hill at the home of the Bugatti Owners Club only being available to VHRA member’s vehicles, it means that it’s non-stop hot rod action from the moment the track opens, until the very last second, when the final car makes its assent. In addition to the racing action, there is a party in the clubhouse on Friday and Saturday nights, with DJ Tim North playing rock ‘n’ roll and R&B into the evening.

GOW! is the time for members of the the Vintage Hot Rod Association to test their cars capabilities on the bends, and there’s better place to be doing it, than on Prescott Hill. This historic racetrack has been a home to motorsport since 1937 and is still as exciting today as it was 80 years ago. With twists, turns and hairpin bends along its 1,128 yards, it’s certainly not for the faint-hearted.

Saturday is the day the cars take to the hill, and it’s an early start for when the first car is waved off, charging under the bridge into the long left hander that is Orchard Corner. Make sure you’re there on time, we wouldn’t want you to miss a moment of the action on those famous curves. To help add to the fun, passengers can be carried, and there is no limit to the number of runs you can have.
