- In December 1929 three Bugatti enthusiasts met at Simpson’s in The Strand and decided to form the Bugatti Owners’ Club. By March 1930 the Club was formally established and open for business.
- The second oldest one-make car club, and the first to be founded entirely independently of the manufacturer, the Club forged strong and continuing links with the Bugatti family in those early years. The Club’s first Patron was Ettore Bugatti himself.
- The Club was intended to cater for sporting motorists who enjoyed driving their cars as the maker intended (fast). The original philosophy still holds true today with the Club’s Speed Hill Climbing being one of the oldest forms of motor sport.
The Exhibition at the Gardens Gallery
- Prescott is home to a wealth of talented photographers, both amateur and professional. At the end of 2011, the first Prescott Photographer Award competition was held, producing some outstanding entries. Although the Club has used these wonderful images in their marketing, they wanted to share the photographs with a wider audience.
- Prescott Perspective presents the estate, the cars, the drivers and spectators in spectacular form. From intimate portraits to moments of breathtaking speed amongst leafy splendour, the exhibition is not just about racing but about the glory of the Cotswolds and the people who share Prescott with the Club.
- Thirty five photographers will be exhibiting their work, with seventy images on display, some for sale.
