Prescott Bike Festival takes place once again on Sunday 17th April 2016 at Prescott Hill Climb, Gloucestershire. The Festival prides itself on diversity and celebrates engineering excellence; from rare, classic, modern, customised to hand built bikes and those of historic significance, this year the organisers have secured the most diverse motorcycles yet, from the World’s fastest shopping trolley powered by a Chinook helicopter engine (holds a record speed of 70.4mph/ 113.298khm), the Carlos Checa’s MotoGP bike through to Bob Farmer, winner of the 1966 Lightweight Manx TT with his 1960’s Aemacchi (the model he took the win on).
An amazing day that raises money for the incredible charity – Bloodbikes – who support the NHS by delivering life-saving blood supply across the UK and even into Europe.

Unlike a static bike show, Prescott gives visitors the unique opportunity to get up close to see, smell and hear lots of historic, classic and race bikes run the historic hill climb course, “better than Goodwood”, said one excited visitor. There are so many significant motorcycles heading to Prescott this year including Kevin Schwantz’ 1995 Suzuki RGV500 XR85, the last Suzuki GP bike Schwantz ever rode.
