Getting There

Follow signs for Prescott (in blue) that are posted on the A435 Cheltenham/Evesham road. On entering Gotherington, follow the road straight through the village, Prescott is 1.1/2 miles situated on the right hand side of the road.

On Arrival

Newcomers are best advised to make their way to the Marshals Pound, there's always a bunch of regulars in various stages of inebriation around to help.

Signing On

As you enter the venue you have a choice of directions..... bear Left and you can cross the Startline or enter the Paddock, bear Right takes you past the motorhomes and towards the Marshals Pound. Follow the dirt track which is parallel to the race track. Just after the pedestrian bridge is the location of the Marshal's Pound, a fenced off area for marshals and invited guests. Someone will always be there from around 5pm on any Friday before a meeting.

This is where signing-on takes place and also where the alcohol is most freely available!!!!!!!

Circuit Usage / Configurations

Posts

Esses

Classic technical Hillclimb corner. Loads of ways to get it wrong.

Ettores

There might be trees, but they don't protect you, so remember to WRAP UP & keep warm, i've done it here once & felt seriously cold.

Lunch / Circuit Customs

Return road allows for later starts in the morning. Be sure to take your breaks quickly as the return road means there is usually a constant flow of cars up the hill

Signing-on also involves a £10-00 note changing hands!!! (in the right direction!!)

Marshal's Perspective

Because of the hard work of the Prescott Marshals club, the lot of a Prescott marshal is a happy one.
