The 11th Edition Ormskirk Motorfest 2021
Hi Folks, we had a meeting yesterday (18th) with West Lancs Borough Council Management to discuss Motorfest and can confirm that no event can take place this year as the Council have been unable to make any provision for the event due to overstretched budgets and resources due to the Covid Pandemic.
The Council Management are very supportive of the event for 2022, as it brings tremendous economic and social benefits to West Lancashire at very low costs, but the running of the event will depend on Councillors approving the event budget, which is expected to be decided in the Autumn budget review.

In the meantime, we would ask you to support our new event, which is NOT a replacement for Motorfest!:
