Sunday 24th August 2014
Beaulieu’s popular Simply Classics event, now in its fourth year, has rebranded to Simply Classics & Sports Car for 2014, as the rally has now expanded to include sports cars. Taking place on Sunday 24th August, this event is open to all owners of pre-1989 classic vehicles and sports cars of all ages, with participants invited to drive their vehicle to Beaulieu and display it in the beautiful parkland surrounding the National Motor Museum.
This event provides classic and sports car owners with the perfect opportunity to take a drive through the picturesque New Forest and join the display, meet other like-minded enthusiasts and enjoy a day out at the Beaulieu attraction.
British sports car manufacturer, MG, is this year celebrating its 90th anniversary and will be the featured marque at Simply Classics & Sports Car. In a special display area at the event, MGs of all ages will be on show from early VAs and TAs to the ever popular MGB and Midget, as well as modern classics such as the MGF and MG TF, plus the current MG3 and MG6 models, with displays from regional MG clubs and individual owners as well as a number of trade stands.
During the afternoon there will be a parade of some of the best examples of the MG marque. Beaulieu’s visitors will be asked to vote for their favourite MG, as well as their favourite overall vehicle on display, in the People’s Choice Awards. In an afternoon presentation ceremony, the owners of the winning vehicles for both the People’s Choice and the People’s Choice MG awards will each be presented with a Beaulieu Trophy.
For those participating in the event with a sports car or pre-1989 classic, ticket prices are Adult £10 and Child £5. Event tickets include entry to the whole Beaulieu attraction, featuring the National Motor Museum, World of Top Gear, Beaulieu Abbey and Palace House and gardens.
Tickets can be purchased on the day or in advance online at www.beaulieushop.co.uk or on telephone line 01590 612888.
