The Bugatti Trust is an independent Charitable Trust whose objectives are to preserve and make available for study the works of Ettore Bugatti.
The Bugatti Trust is delighted to announce that on the weekend of the 5th and 6th of August we will be open free of charge courtesy of the VSCC. We will also be running a number of free educational workshops aimed at children. These are designed to encourage them to consider Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts or Maths (STEAM) related subjects as study and career paths. Stefan Marjoram (also the official photographer for the Bloodhound SCC Land Speed record car!) will run a free ‘drawing vintage cars’ class on the Saturday. On Saturday and on Sunday, Cheltenham Science Group (CSG) will run hands-on, drop-in, science workshops investigating two questions: 1) How do you make something go? Building balloon cars to show propulsion and 2) How can you make something go faster? Discovering all about gears! The idea is to inspire, regardless of whether you are a junior, a super keen car enthusiast or someone coming along for the ride!
PLEASE NOTE that parking is restricted because of the VSCC hill climb meeting which takes place that weekend and you will need admission tickets for the racing event. Please ring us for more details on Tel.: 01242 677 201
The Bugatti Trust was formed in 1987 by the late Hugh Conway supported by a small group of Bugatti enthusiasts. Hugh Conway was an acknowledged expert on Bugatti history and well known internationally through his books, other writings and personal contacts. His remarkable collection of period photographs, technical drawings, letters and articles form the basis of the Bugatti Trust archive which we continue to expand and develop.
Access to our archive was significantly enhanced in 1990 through the opening of our Prescott Visitor Centre (pictured above) by HRH the Duke of Edinburgh. Since then we have been able to put on display many examples of Ettore Bugatti’s work.
Our aim is to promote the works of Ettore Bugatti and to raise awareness of the importance of aesthetics and integrated design in engineering by his example.
