Sponsored and created in partnership with Silverlake Automotive Recycling and Eastleigh Football Club, funds raised by the event will be used to support the football club’s community activities including the club’s charity which makes football kit and training accessible to disadvantaged young people and supports pan-disability football in the region.

Managing director at Silverlake Automotive, Allen Prebble, 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 F.C, 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. The regional support and interest has been staggering and we are looking forward to a day that will put Hampshire on the map for this type of event.”

Vice Chairman at Eastleigh FC, Tom Coffey, said: “I am delighted that we have teamed up with one of our principal sponsors to put this showcase event on.  As a community club we are extremely excited to be part of this.  We are always trying to find alternative ways to attract a different audience to The Silverlake Stadium and we feel there is no better way to do that than by hosting this event.”
