ORGANISERS of the forthcoming Turriff MotorFest are at ‘full throttle’, putting the finishing touches to what promises to be a sparkling new motoring event for the North East.
The Turriff MotorFest, which takes place at The Haughs, Turriff, on Sunday 15th May, promises to be a festival for motoring enthusiasts of all types and all ages from across Scotland.
Bookings from private individuals, wanting to showcase their special cars or motorbikes, have been flooding in – particularly since a Facebook page was opened to promote the event and ‘early-bird’ discounted tickets are also being snapped up via the website.
The MotorFest has two key objectives: to attract people to the Turriff area and to encourage safe and responsible road use, following the increasing number of accidents and fatalities in the area.
Turriff & District Ltd., which is putting on the event, are particularly pleased to have attracted two iconic motorcycle brands – Harley Davidson from Edinburgh and Ducati from Glasgow, and those interested in Formula 1 motor racing, or motor rallys will not be disappointed either.
Moto GF, which is sponsoring the Mechanic Zone also sponsors TAU racing (Team Aberdeen University) and will be showing the ‘Formula Student’ car, built from scratch by engineering students from the university, in which the team competes in the Scottish Rally Championships.
MotoGF will also be showcasing the top-class quality Italian Beta Tools, and organising a competition on the day.
Local rally drivers Colin Smith and Craig Chapman will also be attending the MotorFest and bringing their Honda car in which they competed in the recent International Rally Championships.
The Haughs will be alive with activities, demonstrations and competitions, as well as a full day’s programme of music and entertainment, for those who don’t want to spend their entire day with their head under a car bonnet.
Food stalls, a beer tent and lifestyle hall, as well as a special children’s zone with rides and activities and the boating pond will mean that the event should be a great family day out too.
Martin Kirk, chair of Turriff & District Ltd., said: “It is always difficult to break new ground with a different type of event, but we have been heartened and surprised by the support from near and far for what we are trying to achieve, and I am confident that we will have a great event on the day.”
