All owners of Alfa Romeos can join in with the fun, driving their vehicles down to Beaulieu for the day and displaying their vehicles against the picturesque backdrop of the Beaulieu parkland. All ages and models of Alfa are welcome, from the elegant classic HP and 6C models of the early 1900s to the modern 4C, Giulietta and MiTo models gracing the roads today.
Local divisions of the Alfa Romeo Owners’ Club will be in attendance, bringing along a number of their members’ cars and Meridien Motors will be displaying a selection of their stunning, full-blooded Italian vehicles.
This is a fantastic opportunity to meet other like-minded enthusiasts and enjoy all the features of the Beaulieu visitor attraction, recently awarded Gold in the Large Visitor Attraction of the Year category at VisitEngland’s 2013 Awards for Excellence.
See over 250 vehicles on show in the National Motor Museum, from F1 racers to Land Speed Record Breakers and don’t miss BOND IN MOTION, the world’s largest ever exhibition of original James Bond film vehicles. The collection includes the Lotus Esprit S1 ‘submarine’ car from THE SPY WHO LOVED ME, a QUANTUM OF SOLACE Aston Martin DBS stunt car and two Honda CRF250R motorcycles and a Land Rover Defender 110 from the latest Bond film to be released, SKYFALL.
Enter World of Top Gear to see genuine vehicles created by presenters Jeremy, Richard and James in their challenges on the BBC television show, including Richard and Jeremy’s “Grannymobile” and the P45 micro car driven by Jeremy through a shopping centre and the British Library on the latest series.
You can also enjoy strolling through the beautifully-kept gardens to Palace House, home of the Montagu family since 1538 and 13th century Beaulieu Abbey, or you can explore the grounds by hopping onboard the high-level Monorail or open-topped veteran London bus.
As with all Simply Rallies, visitors to Beaulieu on the day of the event will be invited to vote for their favourite vehicle in the People’s Choice Awards. The owner of the winning car will receive a Beaulieu Trophy in an afternoon presentation ceremony and will be given the opportunity to lead a cavalcade of Alfa Romeos through the attraction.
The Brabazon Restaurant will also be getting into the spirit of things, serving up a range of Italian-themed specialties.
