This Sunday will see thousands of people head to Victoria Park in Southport to enjoy the 2022 Southport Classic and Speed. 

This free public event, which was first held last year, is a celebration of over a century of motoring and motorsport heritage. 

It makes for some amazing pictures – we would love to see you post yours into our Stand Up For Southport Facebook group

Gates open at 10am, with admission free, as visitors admire over 250 classic cars at the park. 

At 11am, there will be a two-minute silence in Victoria Park to allow a moment of reflection during the period of mourning HRH Queen Elizabeth II.

One of our ex-servicemen marshals will perform a ceremonial display of the Union flag to mark the occasion.

At 3pm, a parade of the road legal cars will begin through Southport town centre. 

The Grand Parade of cars will retrace the original groundbreaking 1903 Speed Trial course, along Lord Street and the Promenade. 

Southport Classic and Speed is organised by Aintree Circuit Club, presented by Cataclean and supported by Victoria Park Events, Southport BID and Sefton Council. 

The centrepiece will again be a fabulous themed display of veteran, vintage, classic and modern cars from all periods across the 34-acre Victoria Park. 

There will be Marque and Club Car displays of all types and eras, as well as food, drink and a shopping village for all the family. 

A Southport Classic and Speed spokesperson said: “This year will celebrate both the 65th anniversary of the first all British GP win and the 60th anniversary of Jim Clark’s victory in the British Grand Prix at the nearby Aintree circuit. 

“The Jim Clark Trust which focuses on promoting and celebrating the story of the legendary Scot, described by Ayrton Senna as ‘the best of the best’, will be a beneficiary of the day’s activities.”
