Enter your vintage, classic or exciting vehicle for the 2015 Ormskirk MotorFest

Motoring enthusiasts are now invited to enter their vehicles for display at the 2015 Ormskirk MotorFest.

The fabulous motoring extravaganza, which has become one of the North-West’s biggest free family events, is due to take place on Sunday 30 August 2015.

If you have a vintage, classic, competition or exciting car or motorcycle that you would like to display at the event then please logon to Ormskirk MotorFest (external link) and complete the online entry form.

In 2014 an estimated 25,000 people enjoyed a fabulous day out at the MotorFest as more than 300 cars and motorcycles from all eras of motoring lined up on Moor Street, Aughton Street and in Coronation Park.  Many visitors particularly enjoyed taking a close look at the two Formula 1 cars on display, a 1978 Williams car and a classic BRM which was raced by Graham Hill. The MotorFest Autosolo Challenge, which saw professional drivers testing their skills over a specially-designed course, was another very popular attraction.

The MotorFest is organised by Aintree Circuit Club and supported by West Lancashire Borough Council and the team behind this magnificent occasion are already planning to make the 2015 event better than ever.
