Visitors of all ages can enjoy a day of brilliant entertainment when Prescott Bike Festival (plus EV) zooms back for another year, promising the biggest and best event yet and its first two-day show.
Taking place at the world-famous track on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 June 2018, the eagerly anticipated event features everything from impressive motoring displays and exhibitor zones, to some very special guests and children’s activities.
What’s more, Prescott Bike Festival (plus EV) is not only dedicated to providing a brilliant day’s activities, but also raising funds for Blood Bikes’ founding member Severn Freewheelers, a medical essentials courier service which works in and around Gloucestershire.
SoGlos has rounded up its highlights below, with full information available by visiting prescottbikefestival.co.uk directly.
Saturday will feature an array of attractions and activities including an Electric Showcase that displays the latest road and race technology and boasts an innovation zone, offering the chance for visitors to get up close, question the experts and see stunning examples from BMW, Tesla, Audi, Volkswagen and more.
The Exhibitor Zone will showcase around 100 quality manufacturers, dealers, trade stands, and the Blood Bike Village, where you can bag a bargain or purchase a new bike.
A highlight will be the Paddock Specials, with the chance for motorheads to get up close to a host of iconic bikes that are the finest examples of motorcycle engineering excellence; while there’ll be no track action on Saturday, there will be special fire up times.
For young visitors, the Kids' Zone offers everything from bouncy castles, face painting and fun fair attractions, to electric go-karts and ice-creams, and is sure to put a smile on youngsters’ faces.
Other highlights include Gin and Jazz throughout the day in The Clubhouse; the chance to try over 20 regional craft beers in the Brews and Blues marquee; and a special Cotswolds Quest for motorcyclists who can set off on a journey through the area’s best roads.
With Sunday focusing more on track action, visitors can expect to see some very special guests, and have the chance to take to the Hill during a Passenger Experience, with a choice of machines featuring Racing Side Car Outfits, new and old Morgan Three Wheelers, and the Grinnall Scorpion.
Sunday’s Paddock Specials will see a host of invited guests showcase their rare examples of one, two and three wheels as they take to the Hill for some amazing action, featuring vintage, classic, modern, special build, factory race bikes, monowheels, jet powered and more.
The Show 'n' Tell session will see the best of the best, as a selection of the Paddock Specials are interviewed, and the Exhibitor Zone, Electric Showcase, Kids' Zone, Brews and Blues and Gin in the Clubhouse will remain from Saturday.
Meanwhile, a highlight year after year, Run The Hill welcomes around 200 members of the public to ride the famous Hill, while plenty of delicious food and drink, entertainment, and family fun make it a day out for every generation.
