A highlight of the Beaulieu events calendar, Simply Classics & Sports Car, will return on Saturday 22nd August, bringing together a wide variety of pre-1990 classic cars, as well as sports cars of all ages. From family saloons and classic commercial vehicles to elegant tourers, open topped sports cars and more, this vibrant event is sure to please all motoring fans.
Participants in the rally will be able to drive their cherished machines through the picturesque New Forest, before parking up in the grounds of the National Motor Museum, where they can chat with like-minded enthusiasts, admire the other cars on show and enjoy all of the features of the Beaulieu attraction, for just £10 per adult and £5 per child.
For 2015, the event will celebrate three motoring milestones for Triumph with a special display area set aside for three much loved models of this marque. To mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Triumph 1300, which developed into the legendary Dolomite, plus thirty years of the Triumph TR7 and forty five years of the Triumph Stag, owners of these classics are invited to come along and display their cars at the rally.
Already booked to attend once more is the Bournemouth & Poole MG Club, which is sure to bring along another fine selection of its members’ vehicles for visitors to admire.
Throughout the day, Beaulieu’s attraction visitors will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite car of the show in the People’s Choice Award. The owner of the winning car will be awarded with a Beaulieu trophy, before leading a cavalcade of the most popular vehicles through the Beaulieu parkland.
