Ormskirk Motorfest – Important Announcement

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
Following a meeting of the Directors of the Club, faced with the continuing complications and unnecessary delays in obtaining further approvals, that are beyond our control, and which could have been avoided by the local authorities, places us in an unacceptably exposed position, with no guarantee that the event can obtain outstanding approvals within the remaining timescales.
We have therefore taken the decision to withdraw our support for the event.
The reality is that these unnecessary delays (over six months) in making key decisions regarding funding and event safety, hasn’t left enough time for road closure consultations re the Temporary Traffic Regulatory Order, which we assumed would be rubber stamped, given the number of times (9) the event has previously been very successfully run!
We realise that a huge number of residents, local businesses, participants, event sponsors and supporters will be terribly disappointed but we consider it is in all our best interests to make this decision now rather than at the last minute.
