Motorfest AutoSOLO Challenge to offer live Motor Sport action for spectators! Park Pool Car Park. From 10am

2018 sees the return of our much loved AutoSOLO Challenge to Park Pool Car Park.

This is a competitive driving test for road legal cars running to Motor Sports Association regulations.

Featuring 10 of the best AutoSOLO and AutoTEST drivers in the North West, the tests will run from 10.00 to approx 14.15
.

Timed to the nearest 1/10th of a second, each driver will have a round 12 runs at the test course, which is set out in the Coronation Park side of Park Pool Car Park.

The public will also be entertained by the guest appearance of former BBC Top Gear presenter Steve Berry, who will provide live commentary and driver interviews from about 11.30am, following the Parade Driver’s briefing.

Spectator viewing will be from the Coronation Park side of the test course and on either side of the test site.

The AutoSOLO runs under an Clubman’s MSA Permit and is being run by Bolton Le Moors Car Club in association with Aintree Circuit Club by invitation only.

AutoSOLOs are a great way to start in low cost competitive Motor Sport.
