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.
