Motorfest Announcement

Good afternoon Motorfest fans,
After months of work and several news articles you’ve probably seen, Ormskirk Motorfest sadly won’t be running this year.
This is for a number of reasons including time and funding. Although some progress was made with West Lancs Borough Council, there simply wasn’t enough time left to guarantee that all the necessary safety measures could be implemented to make sure the event runs as safely and smoothly as it has each year.
There have been several news articles and conversations online regarding the funding of the event. It is true that West Lancs Borough Council reduced its funding support for the event. They didn’t pull all funding, but as a club, we managed to secure enough sponsorship to ensure that Motorfest remains a free to attend event for everyone.
The good news is that for 2023, we have options to keep Motorfest in Ormskirk, at a different venue to Coronation Park, with the involvement of local business and community organisations.
We know its been an up and down few months, but as a completely volunteer run event, we want to make sure the event remains free to be enjoyed by all.
Our other event, Southport Classic and Speed, will be going ahead on September 10th and 11th. Follow the page for further details as we buildup to event day.

Entries from 2020

Hello All,

If you entered a vehicle for either the Static Displays in Coronation Park or the Town Centre Displays and Parade, you should have received an email from us last week to ask you to confirm that you wished to transfer your entry to this year’s event.

If you did enter in 2020 but haven’t heard from us, please contact us via the Contact Form, providing your name and vehicle registration number to confirm either way if you wish to join us this year, even if you have changed vehicle.

Thank you.

New Motorfest supporter announced – Cataclean “Liquid Science for the Life of your vehicle”

Aintree Circuit Club, organisers of Motorfest, are delighted to announce that we now have the support of Liverpool based Cataclean Technologies.

Cataclean already have a big involvement in Motorsport with their Cataclean racing Team competing in the British Touring Cat Championship with Dan Rowbottom and their involvement with Motorfest is a perfect fit with their motor racing and consumer engagement.

Full details of Cataclean’s products can be found on their website:  and details of the motor racing activities


With a portfolio of fuel and exhaust cleaning products that can bring down a vehicle’s emissions by up to 60%*, restore performance and improve fuel economy, we are widely recognised as a global market leader in the world of automotive additives.

Don’t take our word for it.

With over 700 reviews on Amazon, the majority of which are five-star, and recommended by Halfords Autocentre, our products are carried on the RAC’s fleet of breakdown vehicles – an endorsement we are enormously proud of – and conform to strict EU legislation, providing peace of mind that they do not harm the environment.

Our story started in 1995, when we developed and patented a range of convenient ‘pour and go’ solutions for cleaning fuel and exhaust systems before, during and after combustion, eliminating the need to pay for premium fuels at the pump.

From protecting and maintaining the catalytic converter to de-clogging diesel particulate filters, Cataclean Liquid Science in petrol and diesel versions to One Shot Bike and Workshop can also mean the difference between an MOT pass or fail.

We are a British company that exports to Europe, Asia, Africa and the US, with our products successfully tried and tested by a range of organisations worldwide, from the American Automobile Association and Metro Taxi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) through to Lancashire Police and Veolia in the UK. 

Crucially, our products have also had many testimonials from industry experts, as well as customers, including Car Mechanics and Professional Mechanics magazine.

From emission busting to engine maintenance, from performance restoration to increasing miles per gallon in cars, vans and motorcycles, we have it covered.
