Classic cars give sneak preview of Ormskirk MotorFest

ORMSKIRK'S shoppers were treated to the striking sight of more than a dozen sports cars taking over the town's market yesterday as part of efforts to promote a celebration of motorsport next month.

Aintree Circuit Club brought the cars and motorbikes to the centre of the historic market town not only to promote National Motorsport Week but also to promote this year's Ormskirk MotorFest, which takes place on 24 August and has already attracted more than 300 entrants.

Mike Ashcroft, the club's chairman, said: "Not only have we got hundreds of entrants, but we've also got a substantial car club presence this year, so West Lancashire Borough Council has very kindly allocated us the field to the rear of Coronation Park to give space to these clubs, some of which are bringing between 10 and 15 vehicles each.

"There are a lot of new things happening at this year's event, including changes to the parades from little batches of vehicles to larger parades which go around the town centre more times than in previous years.

The cars on show included a 1992 Ferrari 348, a 1973 Triumph Stag and a 1970 Ford Mustang, which aimed to give shoppers at the town's market a taste of the machines which will be on show at next month's event.
