MotoFest ’24, a new motoring festival, will take place on Saturday, June 15 at the Silverlake Stadium, home of Eastleigh Football Club.

Between 11am and 5pm, enthusiasts will get a chance to marvel at a wide range of vehicles, with supercars, motorbikes, classic and racing cars, electric cars, and motorhomes all on display.

Private collections and models from regional dealers will also feature in the family-friendly event.

There’ll also be a range of experiences on the day too, including an F1 simulator for budding racing drivers, alongside interactive play areas for children.

Hampshire & IOW Air Ambulance will present a helicopter simulator, and the chance to explore a real fire engine with the Hampshire & IOW Fire and Rescue Service.

Additionally, visitors can also explore a Biffa refuse truck.

Leisure breaks can be spent in The Sherwoods Lounge and Hangar Bar, or at one of the numerous street food stalls scattered across the event.

The event has come about due to a partnership between Silverlake Automotive Recycling and Eastleigh Football Club with the organisers intending to make it an annual event.

Allen Prebble, managing director at Silverlake Automotive Recycling, said: "MotoFest ’24 is all about bringing people in the region together for a fun day out and supporting the community with the funds raised.

"I’ve been thinking about doing this for a number of years.

"Our business in Shedfield is built around automotive recycling and since my father founded the business 78 years ago, we have environmentally processed end-of-life vehicles and witnessed the evolution in motor design and performance first-hand.

“Where better to hold the event than at Eastleigh FC – a football club that sits at the heart of the community.

"We have been stadium sponsors for the last 17 years and get heavily involved in community outreach with the club.

"We are looking forward to a day that will really put Hampshire on the map for this type of event.”

Tickets for this year's inaugural event are priced at £5 for adults and £1 for children five and over, while children aged under five can enter for free.
