Truckmania Set To Be Larger Than Life At Beaulieu

On Sunday 26th and Monday 27th of the May Bank Holiday weekend, TRUCKMANIA will be unleashed at Beaulieu as this exciting new event welcomes a swarm of truck-sized displays, demonstrations and activities into the grounds of the National Motor Museum.

The world-famous monster truck, BIGFOOT, will be wowing visitors with two live, action-packed displays each day. In the morning, see this leviathan of the motoring world doing a demonstration of power in the Beaulieu Arena, and in the afternoon, head over to the event fields to see BIGFOOT crushing cars provided by vehicle recycling specialists, Silverlake Garage, who will also be in attendance at the event with their own lorry transport.

A range of colourfully customised and branded trucks will be on display at the event, including a Lewis Hamilton F1 branded truck from Sean M Taylor Transport, an Ice Truckers branded lorry provided by KER Transport and a number of film-branded vehicles from Dalton’s Transport, including The Hangover, Rocky and The Avengers. Saints Transport and Harris Transport will also be bringing a number of their company branded vehicles.
A whole variety of transport vehicles will be attending the event, spanning the motoring generations. Bournemouth & Poole Preservation Society will be showing a selection of their stunning classic and vintage vehicles and a fully-restored 1910 fuel tanker, complete with Anglo American Oil Company stamped brass hub covers, will also be on display for visitors to see, courtesy of its owner and restorer, Alan Chandler.

Don’t miss Mini World, a model-sized track complete with a wide range of remote controlled model trucks. From a construction site to a road network, these RC trucks will recreate anything a full-sized truck does on a daily basis.

Each day Beaulieu’s visitors can vote for their favourite vehicle in the People’s Choice Awards, and each afternoon the driver whose truck has received the greatest number of votes will be presented with a Beaulieu Trophy.

Younger visitors can get involved in the trucking action by taking a ride in mini trucks on Beaulieu’s very own Dipsticks Driving Circuit*, or by having a go on the Dodgems free of charge.

Truckmania can be seen as part of a visit to the whole Beaulieu attraction. See the National Motor Museum and exciting James Bond vehicle exhibition, BOND IN MOTION, World of Top Gear, Beaulieu Abbey, Palace House and the beautifully-kept gardens, plus enjoy unlimited rides on the high-level Monorail and open-topped veteran London bus.

Beaulieu attraction admission tickets are available to buy on arrival on the day of your visit, or at a discounted rate in advance online at
