Get in the driv­ing seat for places at Mo­tor­fest

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Student Life -

MAKE sure you are in pole po­si­tion to en­joy one of the biggest free fam­ily events in the North West of Eng­land, tak­ing place in Orm­skirk.

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.”

Ain­tree Cir­cuit Club chair­man, Mike Ashcroft, said: “Put the date in your diary now for the 2018 Orm­skirk Mo­tor­Fest, as it will be a fan­tas­tic event.

“If you want to be mar­shal or if you own a clas­sic, vin­tage and com­pet-ition cars and mo­tor­cy­cle and want to have it on dis­play at the Mo­tor­fest, please visit our web­site www. orm­skirk­mo­tor­fest.com”

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
