It has been a fantastic year of motor events throughout the UK, with Prestige Car Hire being lucky enough to take part in a few of these in 2019.
The Prestige team particularly enjoyed attending the Tatton Park Classic Motor Show August 17-18 and the Brighton Speed Trials on September 7, both of which had something unique to offer car enthusiasts.
Tatton Park is a favourite event for car enthusiasts, not just because of the beautiful parkland surroundings in the gorgeous summer weather, but because the event showcases around 2,000 classic cars and the latest speed machines in the Passion for Power Dream Cars Pavilion (where you could find the Prestige Car Hire team taking speed demons through their paces).
The popular weekend saw a dominance of Bentley vehicles, both new and old, to celebrate their centenary year since Bentley unveiled its first model, the Grand Tourer, back in 1919.
“We had a great time at Tatton, showcasing the McLaren 570s Spyder, Bentley GTC V8S and Lamborghini Huracan Spyder for guests. We were answering plenty of questions from enthusiasts and our ‘win a Bentley weekend hire’ competition was also quite popular,” Craig Harris, Prestige Car Hire Manager.
The Brighton Speed Trials, on the other hand, always bring a slightly different crowd, centring on a younger audience who tend to be more focussed on the competition/speed side of things.
Considered the longest-running motorsport event in the world, first running in July 1905, around 200 cars and 75 motorcycles took part in the standing-start ¼ mile sprint along Brighton seafront’s Madeira Drive.
“It is always a fantastic day in Brighton, with such a variety of vehicles and drivers competing. We brought down the Range Rover Sport SVR and Audi R8 for guests to take a look at and jump in the driver’s seat. It’s a great family day and we’ll be back!” Craig Harris, Prestige Car Hire Manager.
The winner of the Free Bentley Weekend will be drawn within the next month and we wish all who entered good luck!
