Simply Mercedes will build on the growing success of Beaulieu’s popular Simply range of rallies, which celebrate car marques from Ford to Porsche in the grounds of the National Motor Museum. A second new simply rally will soon be announced. New club events also include Vanity Modified and Spring Alfa Day for Alfa Romeo owners.
Beaulieu’s 2019 season features a full range of motoring and family entertainment. Fireworks Spectacular will celebrate an Out of this World theme for the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing and summer fun includes Hot Rod & Custom Drive-in Day for Father’s Day and Beaulieu Supercar Weekend in August. Spring Autojumble will return on May 18th-19th, while International Autojumble will be held on September 7th-8th *. Boatjumble has not been included in the 2019 line-up.
Beaulieu Events Manager Judith Maddox said: “We are delighted to confirm Beaulieu’s 2019 calendar with two new Simply events, recognising the record numbers of cars and participants at this year’s range of Simply rallies.
“We have, however, made the difficult decision not to include Boatjumble – which has not been made lightly. Increasingly poor weather conditions at the start of our events season – which is the only feasible gap in our busy event calendar to hold this event – and a decline in support, due to changing times in the marine industry, has led us to review this event. We will instead develop new opportunities which have presented themselves to us.”
