Today I will be sharing my recent visit to the Pendle Powerfest 2017 car show which was hosted on the 28th May 2017 between the times of 10am and 3pm.

 

The event has become an annual occurrence on may bank holiday weekend, an event that I look forward to and attend each year.

 

The overarching theme this year was ‘celebrating mud and motorsport’ which comprised of rally vehicles, off roaders, various Land Rover’s and a huge array of various other vehicles.

 

Nelson and Colne college was the location, as always for the fine motoring display. Entry price is just £5 with accompanied under 12s entering for free.

 

In addition to all the vehicles on display, there are stands, traders, food stalls, an entertainment stage and various activities to make it a fun day out for all the family. The event seems to grow in size year after year.

 

There are 250 places and all vehicles are welcome from bikes, trucks supercars and other exotics. The show is aimed at enthusiasts and families alike. A classic bus ran on the day, providing trips into the nearby countryside.

 

I parked up nearby at around 1pm and spotted a nice grey BMW 330d M-Sport nearby. There were lots of people milling about, all heading in the direction of the Pendle Powerfest. Even before getting close, various cars were arriving outside, trying to gain access to the event for those who had booked a parking space.

I paid entry and wandered through the gate, such a varied assortment of vehicles from the outset including a black Aston Martin V8 Vantage and a huge Blue Dodge Charger R/T.

Parked further down was my favourite car at the event, a Blue Dodge Viper SRT-10 coupe with white racing stripes. The 645bhp monster has an 8.4L V10 engine and is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox. The owner was very friendly and happy to discuss the American supercar, stating he had owned several Ford Mustangs and had owned the Viper for 2 years. It was the first SRT-10 variant of the Dodge Viper I had seen in the flesh.

All in all, Pendle Powerfest 2017 was a great show. It is great to be amongst like minded vehicle enthusiasts and a great community feel and I look forward to visiting again next year.

 

All money raised at the not for profit event supports children in hospital, a thoroughly great cause.

 

I hope you enjoyed my review, photos and recent experience of Pendle Powerfest 2017.
