* A message from the organising team
The organising team have had several people expressing disappointment about being unable to attend the Centenary Event due to there being no more tickets available.
Of course, it is a matter of regret to all concerned that some people will be unable to attend.
When the event was first conceived there was a target to gather 1000 Austin Sevens to celebrate the centenary. It was not known if this ambitious goal could be achieved but wheels were put in motion to try and make this aspiration a reality.
The Fire Service College was chosen in good faith as a suitable venue as, based on our projections, it was believed to be large enough to cater for our needs whilst also providing excellent facilities.
Our projections for the venue being able to cater for 1000 Austin Sevens and the corresponding number of people did indeed prove to be accurate. As the entry reached just over 1000 Austin Sevens, the capacity for people able to attend the site was also reached.
However, it is fair to say that interest and enthusiasm for the event has exceeded all our expectations. Having met the aspirational numbers, it is due to Health and Safety considerations and the available space that we are not able to continue to accept any more entries.
One of the attractions of the Fire Service College is its secure nature, which will provide safety and security for people attending, and their precious cars. Due to the security of the site, it has been necessary for us to provide the details of those attending in advance, hence the requirement to pre-book and the inability to have day tickets available on the gate.
Those unable to attend the event at the Fire Service College may wish to consider joining the celebrations at the Austin 7 Centenary Festival of Motorsport at Prescott on Wednesday 20th July 2022.
Many people who are attending the centenary event will also be going over to Prescott that day so there will be lots of Austin Sevens with their owners present. There will be a dedicated parking area for Austin Sevens in the Orchard and some historically significant Austin Sevens, as well as many others, tackling the hill.
Tickets are £20 per car regardless of how many people are in it, so a car of four is just £5 per head.
Tickets can be purchased on the Prescott Hill Climb Website
