Sure to be a showstopper, Simply American is a brand new event kicking off on Sunday 24th June in the grounds of the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu. This fabulous themed rally celebrates all things American in the motoring world and is set to be a great day out for both families and motoring enthusiasts alike.
All those who own a vehicle “born in the USA” are invited to motor on down to Beaulieu and live the American dream for a day; joining the colourful display of American vehicles in the parkland, meeting other like-minded enthusiasts and enjoying all the features of the Beaulieu attraction. All American marques are welcome, from everyday American produced cars, to Classic American vehicles, to the true American muscle cars.
Twenty cars chosen from all rally entrants will take part in a cavalcade and display in the Beaulieu Arena, and one of these selected vehicles will be the winner of the coveted People’s Choice Award and Beaulieu Trophy.
As event sponsors, Chevrolet will be showcasing a stunning range of their vehicles at the event, including a beautiful 60th Anniversary Corvette, Camaro, Captiva, new Aveo, Cruze and Volt. They will also be bringing along a Scalextric track for everybody to play on for free.
Adding to the all American atmosphere, musical entertainment will be provided by the American Barndance Band playing sets throughout the day, and visitors can stop for a bite to eat at a number of American-themed food stands in the parkland.
For entrants arriving on the day in their American vehicle and joining the event on the Beaulieu parkland, individual ticket prices are £10 per adult and £5 per child. Advance tickets are available from www.beaulieushop.co.uk or by telephone on 01590 612888, which you can also call for information on group and club entry. If you buy in advance you will also receive a 10% discount voucher for the Beaulieu Gift Shop.
For all enquiries regarding American marque-related trade stands, telephone 01590 614614. There is still time to take advantage of our early-bird offer – buy one trade stand and get the second one free if bought before 25th May 2012.

All other visitors who wish to see the event, but not participate in an American vehicle should enter Beaulieu via the Main Reception from 10am, at normal attraction admission prices.
