Prescott Ales

Brewed close to the famed Prescott Hillclimb circuit, Prescott Ales’ combination of motor sport and beer will surely lead to a hoppy father’s day (sorry). The beers are aptly named: Hill Climb, Track Record, Chequered Flag and Grand Prix. A case of 12 is available for collection from the brewery itself – why not combine the trip with a visit to the hillclimb?

Price £25 for 12 – Prescott Ales


Porsche iPhone case

Normally, Porsche-designed products are prohibitively expensive but these phone cases – available in leather or plastic – are manufacturer-backed and affordable. The leather ones will set you back £42, but you can’t put a price on protection, can you? 

From £18 – Porsche

MSV ‘Dads and Lads’ day

Surely not just restricted to ‘lads’, this day at Bedford Autodrome puts family members in a Renault Clio Cup racing car, an Ariel Atom, a BMW M4, a Formula 3000 single-seater, a Caterham, a Palmer JP-LM prototype racer, a Land Rover and a go-kart in a day’s worth of high-speed thrills. Prices are lofty, but they include catering. Only 24 spaces are available at the ‘early bird’ rate. Spectators over 16 pay £75 + VAT each.

From £1752 for two – MSV

Isle of Man TT shirt

Loads of designs are available for these fetching Isle of Man TT shirts ahead of the world’s fastest motorcycle road race, which begins in earnest on the first week of June. Will look great whether you’re attending, or following it at home from the sofa.

BMW M1 slot car

Our very own features editor Simon Arron (a qualified father himself) submitted this BMW M1 slot car, which painted in the famous Jägermeister livery from 1982. A thinly-veiled hint to his own family, or a helpful addition to our gift guide? You decide.

From £69.95 – Pendle Slot Racing
