THE NORTH WEST’S PREMIER FREE MOTORING FESTIVAL
BANK HOLIDAY SUNDAY – 30TH AUGUST
The Ormskirk MotorFest takes place in and around the centre of Ormskirk, with visitors able to enjoy exhibitions and attractions in a number of areas across the Town Centre of this historic Lancashire Market Town.
With everything from curvaceous classics, cute bubble cars, motorsport machines and the latest supercars on offer, the Ormskirk MotorFest is petrol head heaven.
The streets around the clock tower are usually used to host Ormskirk’s traditional market but for the day of the MotorFest will play host to some of the world’s best loved cars and bikes. All of the town centre streets are pedestrianised, meaning you can get up close to the vehicles and the drivers!
Coronation Park will see hundreds more cars and bikes being shown off by their enthusiastic owners, while a variety of stalls and food and drink venues will be on offer. There will also again be music entertainment in the park, with performers taking to the site’s bandstand.
The Ormskirk one-way system will become West Lancashire’s answer to Monaco in the afternoon on MotorFest day, with the usually busy thoroughfare being closed to provide a space for the world’s best cars and bikes to take part in a series of parades.
Ormskirk has excellent road and rail connections being just 10 minutes drive from the M58 and served by fast direct electric trains every 20 minutes from Liverpool Central Northern line.
A park and ride facility featuring Classic Liverpool Corporation buses operates from Edge Hill University during the event as well as limited free Town Centre Car Parking.
The A570 Ring-Road, which forms the 1 Mile Parade Circuit, will be closed to all traffic under an Official Road Closing Order, which will be in place from 14.30 to 16.30 during the event.
One of the few places you can see an F1 car being driven around a town centre, so not a spectacle that you would want to miss!
