The Pendle Powerfest is a motorshow that brings together a wide assortment of vehicles, enthusiasts and the general public to raise money for charity. At yesterday’s event, the funds raised went to Pendleside Hospice.


On arriving at the event just after 1pm, the place was teeming with activity, queues of people waiting to enter and unique cars streaming in to be displayed. The event began at 10am and continued until 4pm.


The first exhibit and attraction was the Lloyd BMW of Colne stand that had brought a selection of Mini’s, BMW’s and cleaning services to exhibit. These were the official sponsor of the event. There was a great line up including a white BMW X5M, Silver BMW M5, a champagne gold coloured, BMW M4, White BMW M3 and a yellow 420D Msport that included black features.

There were Mini Coopers and raffle tickets for £1 to win a Mini One.



Bikes, trikes and motorcycles had turned up in force with a real variety of makes and models on display.

The rest of the main exhibits were split into rough sections, including Japanese vehicles, a modified cars section, a quirky rat look VW Beetle, Ford Cortina’s, a tuned Mitsubishi Evolution, a Jaguar V12 XJS and a rally spec Ford Escort.

A 1986 Rally Monte Carlo MG Metro 6r4 was also on display, in addition to some classic cars.

An extremely low pickup truck with hydraulics and a custom paintjob was a unique vehicle and there was even a ‘guess the number of bricks’ of a huge replica Lego titanic model creation.

An AC cobra looked the part parked up in gloss black, the front grille removed for increased air induction.

Last but not least the Lotus club turned out in force, with various Lotus Elise’s, Lotus Esprit’s, Lotus Elan’s and many more including Colin Chapman’s Lotus Espirit (the founder of Lotus) after it was recovered in an awful state and restored for 12 years. It is the Esprit with the license plate VEX 299S.

After a few hours of looking at the incredible vehicles on display, it was time to leave. We left in my friends Aston Martin DB9 that was parked up as one of the exhibits and the crowds really gathered as the elegant Aston Martin rolled out of the car park, revving now and again as the audience requested.




The Pendle Powerfest was an excellent event and I will be returning next year, certainly a lot to see for the adult £3 entrance fee.
