Saturday 27th May saw us heading down to Gloucestershire, to have a look at Prescott's event, La Vie en Bleu incorporating La Vita Rossa, which means French and Italian marques were to be the main focus of the event. However, there was a wide range of machinery on offer to enjoy, and a wide range of weather to match, from rain to blistering sunshine to a very cold breezes!
Plenty of polishing and cleaning going on in the paddock, to present their pride and joy in the best possible condition.
The Italian contingent I presume!
Chain & sprocket of enormous proportions on the Beast Of Turin.
£2½ million of the finest automobile engineering in motion!
As the home of the Bugatti Trust, obviously the cars from Molshiem featured prominently on the agenda at Prescott.
Red wheels in motion.
There was also a fine selection of ERA's, to show what the English could do, too!
Bit lacking in creature comforts, but more than makes up for that in the fun department!
The mighty Beast of Turin, a frightening machine!
A Fast Frenchman!
An Opel Tigra, with a few modifications!
Mini On The Move.
Meaty Marcos in a colour assuring that you don't miss it.
No need to worry about the paintwork!
This Miura Jota recreation made a glorious noise attacking the hill!
Bugatti through the trees.
Yellow Ferrari flying along.
ERA in full flow, only to be driven by the very skillfull at this sort of speed!
May be lacking in tyre width but certainly not in commitment!
All too soon, even though we had enjoyed over 9 hours of great action, is was time for us to depart through the agricultural section!
A great fun packed day in a glorious part of the countryside, many thanks to all those that made it happen. If you haven't been to Prescott then I thoroughly recommend it, a lovely relaxed atmosphere, with plenty of room to move around and non stop action makes it a winmer all round.
