Does anyone know if any decision has been made yet, about this year's SAABfest at the Bugatti Owner's Club near Cheltenham?

Hope it does go ahead Andy - I'm booked to marshal (either on the hill or as a Hill Controller) :)
I spend quite a lot of time at my local hill climb course.

Excellent news! Hoping I'll have my newly-refurbished and resprayed c900 back from Haynes in time for this. Failing that I'll probably bring the 96 - could tow it behind the 9-3 as I have the "proper" kit fitted - or simply drive it. It's been to Prescott before - I'm a member of the Bugatti Owners Club (although haven't been for a while due to lockdown and other stuff over the past couple of years).

I'd guess there's an error somewhere, as it also states it is on Fri 13th Aug?

Saab Fest was originally going to be the 7/8 August but Prescott made an error so it is now back to its usual date 31/7-1/8.

The later date was I think an event in Sweden?

Thinking of going to this - but not sure exactly what is happening over the 2 days, also is it open to non-members?

Booking is now Live online at Saab Club Membership Pages, and I've booked for the Saturday/Sunday plus the 3 Hill Pass tokens for the Sunday. :mrgreen:

Let's hope I can make them all, without blowing a coolant hose (like last time), or anything else :lol: :lol:

Can't wait, bring it on :mrgreen:

Just need the Prescott site to go online for Meal Booking now. Hopefully they'll have that excellent Ale on tap again?

Saturday will be the show day with prizes for cars voted for by the public. In the evening the will be a dinner, the format has not been confirmed at present.

Sunday is a day for runs up the famous hill climb.

The club shop should be there for both days and some trade stands.
