The Bugatti Owners' Club are hosting Porsche at Prescott as part of the day's motorsport on Saturday 22nd June

https://www.prescott-hillclimb.com/even ... -june-2019

I believe a few club members will be competing on the hill so we will have a club presence; but some club spectators would be welcome. Prescott is a beautiful venue with good spectator viewing points and facilities

Don't confuse it with the National day last year (The Rotary Club charity day)...

... but if there's enough club interest I'm happy to contact the BOC to ask if we could have a display area

I'm paid up and entered. If the weather is good I might consider camping Sat night for a stop over for Sunday viewing.

Thought it was a one day event? I assume you are referring to the Porsche day.

The Porsche Day is just the Saturday but there will be competition on the hill for the whole weekend

Taken from Prescott's latest release:

Porsche at Prescott is a brand-new event taking place at Prescott Hill Climb (Home of the Bugatti Owners’ Club) on Saturday 22 June 2019. The event which was proposed by competitors in the Porsche Hillclimb championship will pay homage to the iconic German marque and is actively supported by the Bugatti Owners Club, Porsche Centre Tewkesbury and Porsche Club GB.

As part of the Porsche Club National Hillclimb Championship a full field of 35 Porsches including two previous Porsche Hillclimb champions will be competing at the UK’s most famous hillclimb courses, from air-cooled classics to the latest mid-engined models with transaxles thrown into the mix for good measure.

The paddock will also be graced with a mouth-watering display of iconic Porsches such as the iconic 956/007 Group C sports-prototype racing car designed by Norbert Singer and built by Porsche in 1982 for the FIA World Sportscar Championship as raced by Derek Bell and Stefan Bellof. In 1983, Bellof set the fastest record at Nürburgring (12.93 mi) in 6:11 during the qualifying of the 1000 km Sports Car race, a record which stood for a staggering 35 years.

Other fantastic examples of Stuttgart power include the 1973, Porsche 911 2.8 RSR previously owned by ex-world rally champion and racer Bjorn Waldegard. This car is one of only 55 factory race cars and has an extensive race history. Another rare example of the marque is the 2009, Porsche 997 4.0 RSR. This car is one of only 20 cars built. The car has competed 5 times at Le Mans, and in 29 FIA World Endurance (WEC) races and was semi-works supported with factory drivers.
As well as Championship and invitational Classes for Porsches, the event will see the welcome return of the MAC Sunrise, SBD/HSA Speed, Midland Speed Championships along with a round of Prescott’s New Barn 'B' Licence Roadgoing Championship.

Off track, the Orchard zone will showcase a large gathering of high-performance Porsche sports cars, SUVs and sedans representing all eras of the brand. Plus guaranteed to bring a lot of hand clapping, thigh slapping fun to Porsche at Prescott will be The Bierkeller Boys Oompah Band, the lederhosen clad trio have performed for the likes of Ant & Dec, Stephen Mulhern, Dermot O’Leary, Keith Lemon and Vernon Kay. You can grab a beer or Prescott ale from the clubhouse and soak up the marvellous atmosphere, stunning views and top class racing at one of the oldest hillclimbs in the world - herrlich!

‘Supported by Porsche Centre Tewkesbury – bringing the Dealership to you’

Event date: 22 June 2019
Venue: Prescott Hillclimb, Nr Gotherington, Cheltenham, GL52 9RD

Is there member interest or plans for a club presence for this event?

Andrew, Nige and myself will be competing along with Paul in a 944 and Matt in 968 in the Newbarn Champs. There will be 35 or so other Porsche competing in the PCGB speed and hillclimb champs. PCGB will be there in force supported by Porsche Centre
Tewkesbury.......

Also Midland Speed champs
