Rare Bugatti Type 59 Grand Prix Racer to star at Oulton Park VSCC
Meeting this Weekend!
IN a late
addition to the programme the VSCC has confirmed that there will be
a demonstration by an extremely rare Type 59 Bugatti at the Hawthorn
Memorial Trophies Meeting at Oulton Park in Cheshire this coming
weekend, Saturday, 16 May 2009.
The car, one of only 3 left in the world, is priceless and was the
only Type 59 to leave the Molsheim factory in Sports-Racing car
specification. In fact it still sports its original black paint work
from 1936. The first owner was King Leopold of Belgium.
The car will be one of the highlights of this year’s Goodwood
Festival of Speed in early July. A demonstration of this illustrious
vehicle will be made late on Saturday afternoon in addition to a
superb programme of 10 races for Vintage and Historic cars organised
by The Vintage Sports-Car Club, and the Cheshire Concours Display
and Parade of 70 delectable and original pre-war cars.
The action gets underway at 9am for practice, The first race
commences at 12.30pm. Tickets cost £20 on the gate, entry for
children aged 12 and under is free. Access to the paddock is free so
spectators will be able to get close to the competing cars. Oulton
Park is near Little Budworth and is best accessed from the A54 or
the A49 in Cheshire.
