The streets of Liverpool will be transformed into a giant Formula One race track in an event organised by the Duke of Westminster's company, Grosvenor.

The property development firm built the £2bn Liverpool ONE shopping centre and plans to mark its second anniversary with an event called the "Liverpool Pageant of Power".
Part of the city centre will be closed on the evening of May 25 to allow Formula One cars to race through the streets.

The event will also include displays of speedboats, motorbikes, an airshow, classic cars, and a 100mph JCB dragster
The Liverpool pageant will act as a preview to Cholmondeley Pageant of Power which is to be staged in July at Cholmondeley Castle at Malpas, Cheshire.
James Hall, the event director, said: "We have been having very detailed discussions with the highways authorities about closing roads on 24th May.
"It will be an evening event and there is a blueprint from the Tall Ships and other events that shows this can be done with minimal disruption to traffic and the working of the city.
"All the shops and restaurants will be open and we are confident that it will be a nice, safe and friendly environment for families to come and enjoy."

Breaking News......

scouseRS JOIN FERRARI

"The Ferrari F1 team fired their entire pit crew."Says REUTERS

This announcement followed Ferrari's decision to take advantage of the British government's 'Work for your Dole' scheme and employ some Liverpudlian youngsters.

The decision to hire them was brought about by a recent documentary on how unemployed youths from Toxteth were able to remove a set of wheels in less than 6 seconds without proper equipment, whereas Ferrari's existing crew could only do it in 8 seconds with millions of pounds worth of high tech equipment.

It was thought to be an excellent, bold move by the Ferrari management team as most races are won and lost in the pits, giving Ferrari an advantage over every other team.

However, Ferrari got more than they bargained for! At the crew's first practice session, not only was the scouse pit crew able to change all four wheels in under 6 seconds but, within 12 seconds, they had re-sprayed, re-badged and sold the car to the Mclaren team for 8 cases of Stella, a bag of weed and some photos of Lewis Hamilton's bird in the shower

It seems that it is only one day (or possibly evening) and parts of Liverpool will be closed just after rush hour. Nothing is totally confirmed according to the latest details I can find.
