Southport Classic and Speed is back in town this September! 

The stunning free event was a huge success last year, as thousands of people packed into Victoria Park in Southport, before lining town centre streets to admire hundreds of vehicles from the 19th Century to the modern day. 

The 2021 spectacle was enjoyed by an estimated 15,000 people as they admired over 250 classic cars at the park. 

This year’s free Southport Classic and Speed event, presented by Cataclean and supported by Porsche Centre Preston, will take place on Sunday, 11th September 2022 from 10am onwards. 

This year’s parade will be starting earlier at approximately 3pm.

A 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. 

“Gates will open at 10am for free entry to the public with admission charges applicable to special paddocks. 

“Food and drink will be available on site along with craft stalls, trade stands and specialist displays.

“Awards will be presented to the winners in the show’s various concours categories during the afternoon before the event closes at 4.30pm with a parade of the road legal cars through Southport, following the route of the 1903 speed trials. 

“Road legal cars can be entered for Southport Classic and Speed at a cost of £20 per vehicle while competition cars can be entered for free. All display vehicles will be required to arrive on site between 8.30am and 10.30am with support vehicles and trailers removed off site before the public are admitted.”
