The Ormskirk MotorFest has been a hugely popular occasion since it began in 2011, attracting around 30,000 people in 2016 and last year.
The 2018 event, organised by Aintree Circuit Club and supported by West Lancashire Borough Council, takes place on Sunday, August 26, and will be fantastic day out for all the family.
Owners of classic, vintage and competition cars and motorcycles can visit the event website – www. ormskirkmotorfest.com – for information on how to enter.
Organisers are appealing for marshals to join the fun and help the event go smoothly, and you can sign up for this role at www.ormskirkmotorfest. com
Portfolio holder for planning, John Hodson, said: “The Ormskirk MotorFest is a fantastic day out for all the family so make sure you don’t miss this marvellous event.
“Some fabulous cars will once again be on display in the town centre and Coronation Park.”

The Concours de Elegance competition will once again be a feature at the MotorFest.
This will see some specially-presented vehicles line up for expert judges to cast their eye over, including a “Class of ’58” for vehicles from that year, with a trophy for the winner. Owners can enter their vehicles in the Concours on the MotorFest website.
Halsall-based Carequick Ltd Air Conditioning, which specialises in building services, air conditioning and mechanical maintenance, are sponsoring the Concours de Elegance for the fourth successive year.
This attraction will complement the superb town centre displays which will feature a fantastic variety of classic and modern cars and motorbikes.
Many vehicles will join in parade laps around the town centre to entertain the crowds.
‘Where’s the turbo charger, Daddy?’ – a classic motor gets some curious onlookers (and possibly some tricky questions) during the display at last year’s Ormskirk Motorfest
