Beaulieu to host fourth Simply Land Rover event


Beaulieu is to host its fourth Simply Land Rover later this summer.

Located in the heart of the New Forest, the National Motor Museum makes the perfect backdrop to the eclectic collection of 4x4s that turn up every year.

This year's event will be held on Sunday August 7 and will celebrate Land Rover and Range Rover models from throughout the manufacturer's history. From the classic leaf-sprung Series I, II and III to the later Counties and Defenders, there will be plenty to admire during the day.

A number of customised and adapted models are also expected to feature, while club stands will be hosted by enthusiast groups.

This year's event will be particularly poignant, after Land Rover ceased production of its iconic Defender in January, after 68 years.

As with every other 'Simply' rally, visitors will be asked to vote for their favourite Land Rover in the People's Choice Award. The owner of the winner will be presented with a commemorative Beaulieu trophy and an Autoglym prize. The will also have the chance to lead a cavalcade through Beaulieu's grounds.

Visitors who want to get a taste of the 4x4 action will be able to take to the wheel of a Land Rover Experience vehicle on Beaulieu's Forest Drive, while owners who wish to try out their own vehicle's off-road capabilities on the drive can do so.

Tickets for exhibitors at the event will cost £10 (adult) and £5 (child), while visitors will be charged on entry to the museum.
