Triple A Launches in Ainsdale for Car Enthusiasts

NEW monthly get togethers for car enthusiasts are being organised by one of the region's most active and well established automotive organisations. Aintree Circuit Club, organiser of the hugely successful Ormskirk Motorfest and the force behind recent celebrations in Southport marking the 90th Anniversary of Sir Henry Segrave's World Land Speed Record, is moving its monthly meetings to Ainsdale. Tracing its history right back to the 1960's when the British Grand Prix was held at the Liverpool track, traditionally the club has held its meetings close to Aintree. "But from the Motorfest entry list we realised that many enthusiasts were based in the Southport and Formby area. so trekking over to Aintree was at best inconvenient, especially after a full day at work." said club official Nick Stafford,

Following a successful trial meeting, the club are now launching AAA, or Aintree at the Arion, as a regular get together on the 1st Wednesday of each month. "Turnout for the trial meet at the Arion on Kenilworth Road was superb, even though the event was not publicised there were more than 30 cars displayed in the car park ranging from bubble cars to Ferrari and Rolls Royce." said Stafford.

The choice of the Arion was made after a lengthy search for a new club home. Receptive to the idea, pub management allowed a section of the huge car park to be cordoned off specifically for ACC member cars, reserved the pub's attractive conservatory for the club meeting and put a special:- 'Motor Club Menu' in place for the night.

Future meetings are planned to be extremely informal, more a get together and chat than specifically organised agenda. And, crucially, you don't need to own a classic or motorsport car to attend. The club is named for the iconic F1 Grand Prix circuit and many members are active in motorsport but meetings such as AAA are a great opportunity for anyone interested in cars to meet and chat with like-minded enthusiasts. ACC are extending an invitation to any car enthusiast to turn up to the next AAA meeting which will be on Wednesday, 7 September 2016, at the Arion, starting at 7pm. With that meeting being just 1 week after the Ormskirk Motorfest it is hoped that as well as the informal chat, images and video from the club's premier event of the year will also be screened. In a parallel move, ACC are also planning even less formal get togethers on Sunday mornings, again at the Arion. "The Arion is a great pub. It is easy to get to, has extensive car parking facilities convenient for car display and offers excellent food. So a Sunday morning meet once per month is a great way for enthusiasts to meet up over a bacon barmy and a coffee for a chat while displaying or just looking at the cars."

Starting on 7 September 2016, evening meetings will run the first Wednesday of the month with arrivals from about 7pm. Sunday get togethers are planned to start in October, with dates and arrangements to be announced later.
