Not just courses for horses Aintree Race Course

Ormskirk Motorfest - Rain fails to dampen yet another great 8th edition Motorfest.

For the first time in the 8 years that Motorfest has been running, we had rain, lots of it!

A big, big thanks to everybody for supporting Motorfest. It was a miserable, wet day which was in stark contrast to previous years, when we have been blessed with glorious weather.

However, we had an excellent turn out for the Parades, which despite an initial delay caused by civilian vehicles completely ignoring the Closed Road Signs, we finished 20 minutes ahead of schedule, at 16.10 as the weather brightened up around 2pm with the Parades run in mainly damp but not wet conditions!

Thanks to our Marshals for braving the bad weather and doing a great job, especially having to deal with a small minority of un-cooperative members of the public who ignore polite requests not to cross the road during the Closed Road parades to have a chat with mates or pick up shopping!

The Mayor’s Choice was awarded to Chris Walker’s lovely Aston Martin DB4, who has been a great supporter of Motorfest.

The Concours was won again by George Cross, who brought his stunningly original 1976 Ford Escort Ghia.!Auhz2XhmmzlVkrk73p4pmSwqPk1H_A
