The completely original and unrestored Works Type 59/50B Bugatti will make its historic return to Prescott after 80 years for our Bugatti Trust Summer Exhibition 2019 which opens May 25th and will run till September 23rd

’Jean Bugatti and Jean-Pierre Wimille - Prescott 80 years ago’

with cars, engines, films, photographs, correspondence, patents and more…

The presence of the world-famous Works 59/50B Bugatti will also be an important part of the Bugatti Owners’ Club 90th anniversary celebrations this year which will start on the weekend of 25-26 May, with the club’s popular annual French themed event ‘La Vie en Bleu’. The Bugatti Owners’ Club based at Prescott Hill Climb, Cheltenham is the oldest Club for the marque in the world, founded in 1929.

We are always celebrating history but 2019 should be a very special year. I met one of Robert ‘Le Grand Robert’ Aumaître’s relatives recently and we are hoping he will join us for the opening weekend in May.

    • What do you mean by broadcast Ben ? You mean the event at the end of May ? Not that I know of but I would have to liaise with the club on that one. Can I get back to you ?👍

    • I assume somebody will film the move or at least cover / broadcast the exhibit on youtube or some other video coverage?
