Over 300 vintage and high-performance cars will leave Stratford town centre and head to Chateau Impney where they will have the opportunity to drive on the newly created 1,000-yard hill climb course before viewing a specially prepared exhibition about the forthcoming Hill Climb itself.
Everyone taking part in the drive to the Chateau will also receive a special certificate to mark the occasion and commemorate their drive on the course.
The annual Stratford Festival of Motoring is a free, two-day event based in Stratford-upon-Avon on Sunday 3 and Monday 4 May. Over 150 cars will leave the Leisure Centre car park from 8am on both the Sunday and Monday with the last cars leaving around 9.45am. Each day half of the cars will head off over the Clopton Bridge into the Cotswolds and the other half will head off towards Alcester and on towards Chateau Impney. The cars will then return to Stratford to complete a lap of honour of part of the town centre before parking up for the rest of the day.
The sight of 150 cars at a time driving in convoy up to the Chateau promises to be a great spectacle for the bank holiday weekend and really sets the tone for the excitement of our Hill Climb event in July. For more information about the event, visit the Stratford Festival of Motoring website.
