Prescott or Macon....that is the question.....no competition really, all I need is a car.
Shame that Precott has gone downhill, from our perspective, it was a great event.

It's a real shame Prescott has moved away from the French theme somewhat andnot allowing club parking. For this reason.... I'm out

Looking forward to Maçon!!

I intend to take the Atlantique to Prescott on the more French day of La Vie. It's about the most appropriate event I can think of to take it to, and it's not overly far from me. Hopefully I'll be able to persuade a few other Venturis to join in.

I'd guess the Bugatti Owners Club owned location will have a Bugatti area as well ;)

A couple of points -

Firstly, with regard to Donington (note the date is the 28th to the 30th of April - Vie en Bleu is 27th and 28th of May), CAR have applied for a club space - we don't normally have a marquee - if anyone from RAOC would like to attend please contact me at john.sweet99@gmail.com and I will let you have the booking discount code. You are welcome to attend but please let me know if you intend to come along so that I can ensure we have enough space. Provided the weather is OK it is a great event, with lots of close racing on a track you can still get quite close to the cars at, and with some nice hills unlike flat as a pancake Silverstone.

Be plitbut for christ sake get some back bone and tell thrm thr reason why we are not going ...I love Prescott and what was la vie en bleu is no longer ..bite the bullet they'll either take notice or they'll not I suspect not as we stood talking to the organiser ...he doesnt give two sh#ts only about money ...so feck em when it goes down hill lol no pun intended then other clubs will follow suit...maybe then they'll take note. Soon it'll be la vie en Ferrari or MGB

Well I'll be at Prescott on the Sunday and I have entered the Spider. :)
Anyone else got an entry in apart from me and Simon?

Much as I would like to take a Ferrari up Prescott, Katherine is taking me away on holiday that weekend.
I think the two-Laws and the twin turbo GTA maybe running up Prescott this year.:-)

Hi All,

I went visited the Prescott website today as it's getting to that time of year to buy tickets and read all about these new arrangements so came on here to see what everyone thought. Looks like I'm a little behind on this news.

I'm out....very disappointing, I've been taking the Lunar R26R every year, but not 2017.

Bye Prescott :Ass_Kick

Maybe we'll catch up somewhere else, maybe not...can't do OrigineRS this year :(

Matt.

Here is the ticket code for those that still want to go. Please remember that parking for French cars is in rows this year. There are no club stands so if you want to park together please arrive together.

Re: La Vita Rossa (27 – 28 May 2017) Prescott Hill Climb

Do you own a French vehicle? Why not be part of our official event display!

You do not need to be affiliated to a car club to take advantage of this offer. All makes, models and years of French vehicles are most welcome. The dedicated reference code for all French vehicles is: FRE17
The reference code provided is specific to French cars only. You will need to enter it online when purchasing advance tickets via our website. This will secure a space in the French display zones adjacent to the track in Orchard.
The vehicles will be lined up Le Mans style in the French display area.
The display pass will be sent by Royal Mail with the first batch despatched during w/c 2 May. The deadline for obtaining an Orchard car park pass is Sunday 21 May 2017. Please book early to avoid disappointment.

Will anyone be there on Saturday?
I can't go on Sunday unfortunately. I think the A610 needs a run and I need to stop staring at the underside of the GTA.
