Good shout Paul.

I have heard a rumour that the Renault Classic, C.A.R and RAOC will be sharing a stand this year? Makes sense to me.

Put me down for the Saturday please as I have not been in years. Can't do a stop over or the Sunday as I am on holiday then. Looking forward to it. :up

La Vie en Bleu incorporating La Vita Rossa

Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 May 2016

Prescott Hill Climbs French and Italian motoring festival

A celebration of French and Italian cars, music and entertainment

On the weekend of Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 May 2016, the tenth annual pageant of French motoring excellence – La Vie en Bleu – takes place at Prescott Hill Climb, Gotherington in Gloucestershire – home of the Bugatti Owners' Club. This spectacular two day event has always been a firm favourite in the motoring calendar, and this year will be no exception. NEW for 2016 is the introduction of ‘La Vita Rossa’ as Prescott also celebrates everything Italian!

Prescott will be transformed in celebration of fine French and Italian automobiles, themed entertainment, trade stalls and visiting car clubs. Plus special competition classes for French and Italian marques.

The paddock will be packed with iconic French and Italian classic cars and supercars from a Bugatti Veyron Supersport and Pur Sang, its older cousin the Bugatti EB110, a large number of iconic French marque the Voisin, plus numerous Ferrari’s including an Enzo, a 1965 275 GTB, a 246 Dino, a 330 GTC, a LaFerrari and a Fantuzzi 196S. Other themed marques include a 1975 Maserati Khamsin, a Lamborghini Countach Diablo TT, an Alfa 1750 6C, plus an Alfa Romeo 156 which formally competed in the European Touring Car Championship and Nelson Piquet's 1990 Benetton F1 Car. Plus many more confirmed!

Visitors to Prescott will be in for a real treat, when the ‘Beast of Turin’ roars into action. The Fiat S76, known as the Beast of Turin is the one surviving example of a pair of land speed record contenders the Italian automaker built before WWI. The Beast of Turin’ was built in 1910 with the express intention of beating the land speed record, held at the time by Blitzen-Benz. Its 28.5-litre Fiat S76 engine was capable of providing an impressive 300bhp - enough to propel the car to 116 mph, and a one-mile land speed record, in 1911. After WWI Fiat dismantled one of the two impressive machines to prevent rival manufacturers obtaining its technical secrets, while the other one was purchased by Russian aristocrat Boris Soukhanov. In 2003, engineer enthusiast and current owner Duncan Pittaway Owner Duncan Pittaway discovered the remains of one chassis in Australia, and eventually united it with the surviving S76 engine from the other car. Duncan will be firing up the beast, to compete during the weekend.

Another highlight includes an invitational class of ERA’s. Six are already confirmed, four of which will be competing on the Saturday including the iconic ex-Raymond Mays R4D – the most celebrated chassis in the marque's history. ERA R4D was built by English Racing Automobiles as the last development classic voiturette racing car in the 1930s, designed to compete with the highly successful Bugatti’s and Maseratis. In spite of its success, it was the only D-Type ever built, but accumulated a formidable reputation, and competition records in its various guises. ERA founder Raymond Mays set numerous pre-war records in the R4D, including ones at Prescott hill climb, Shelsley Walsh, Brighton Speed Trials and Brooklands Mountain Circuit. The vehicle remains one of the most successful pre-war competition cars of its time.

Plus, we are delighted to announce that the Ferrari 250 GT SWB chassis 2119 famously driven to victory in the Goodwood Tourist Trophy of 1960 by Stirling Moss will be displayed courtesy of its current custodian Ross Brawn. This particular car has a spectacular history, being the vehicle that Stirling Moss famously drove to victory in the Goodwood Tourist Trophy in 1960. This car also competed in seven other races, bringing in five more wins, two for Stirling Moss in 1960, which also included a trip to the Bahamas, and three wins for Mike Parkes in 1961. The Ferrari 250 GT Short Wheelbase is one of the worlds most coveted and valuable cars, and one of the most revered Ferraris’s combining a great engine with a fine chassis and a beautiful body.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Lamborghini Miura, the 1969 ‘Twiggy’ Miura S will also be in attendance. The original Miura was produced between 1966 and 1969, at the time it was the fastest production car in the world, with a top speed of 280kph, and acceleration from 0-100kph in 6.7 seconds. Designed by Macello Gandini for Bertone, the two-seater vehicle with its central V12 engine and fascinating body, it redefined the concept of a sports car. This 1969 Lamborghini Miura S was originally delivered to the 1960s supermodel ‘Twiggy’. It was delivered to the Daily Express’s “The Face of 66” in her chosen colour scheme.



Representing the dawn of veteran motoring is a 1904 Mors Brighton car. Mors was an early French car manufacturer and one of the first to take part in automobile racing, the company’s founder Emile Mors understood that racing provided technical and promotional benefit. The 24 horse power model on display has a 5.5 litre four-cylinder engine and was one of the first 100 veteran cars to be officially dated by the Veteran Car Club when the process was instigated after the War, Certificate No 99.

Aside from the impressive array of vehicles both on and off track, there will be a whole raft of entertainment to keep the whole family amused. Gracing the main stage will be Mark Halliday, known throughout Europe and the USA for his Dean Martin act in the hit musical “Rat Pack ­ Live from Las Vegas”. Mark will bring the style and panache of crooner Dean Martin to Prescott as he performs “That’s Amore” to “Mambo Italiano” plus many more.



Plus ‘Opera’ – possibly a first for a motorsport event? ‘Oyster Opera’ are professional opera singers that will transfix you with their act, but beware you might be invited to waltz along with the soprano to Verdi's Brindisi, be enveloped by a smouldering Carmen, or have a charming, budding Pavarotti serenade you on one knee. The magnificent duo regularly performs at celebrity parties, including that of Sir Elton John. We have ensured that special VIP parking is available for their gondola!

Alongside the roving accordion player, and popular stilt walkers will be the stunning Vegas Showgirls swapping their feathers for flapper dresses and performing Charleston routines to French inspired Electro Swing songs. Taking to the skies above, will be Tiger Aerobatics and their vintage air display (both days, weather permitting).As Nick Mason, Drummer from Pink Floyd, and avid car collector said “Despite being called La Vie en Bleu, the event is quintessentially British - a mini Goodwood Festival of Speed set in the glorious Cotswolds - celebrating French cars, but in a British way. It’s a club motor sport at its best, where visitors can mingle with the cars, speak to the drivers, and watch rare historic vehicles to modern day supercars being pushed to their limits”.

Advance tickets will be on sale towards the end of February at a special ‘buy one get one free’ for a limited time only. For all the up to date information, please visit: www.prescott-hillclimb.com

OK, I understand that we purchase the tickets on the website, but the above states "dedicated reference code, to ensure that they receive both the discount and a car club parking pass". I presume this dedicated reference code is not REN16, so can someone confirm what code this is please ?

Thank you,
