llowing on from the success of the Custom and Hot Rod Festival held last weekend, Beaulieu is now looking forward to welcoming all manner of American vehicles on Sunday 24th June for brand new event, Simply American.

All those who own a vehicle “born in the USA” are invited to display their American vehicles in the parkland, meet other like-minded enthusiasts and enjoy 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 range of their vehicles at the event and will be bringing along a Scalextric track for everybody to play on for free.

Musical entertainment will be provided by the American Barndance Band playing sets throughout the day, and there will be a number of American-themed food stands in the parkland.

For entrants arriving on the day in an American vehicle and joining the event on the Beaulieu parkland, on the day ticket prices are £10 per adult and £5 per child. Advance tickets are available from  telephone on 01590 612888, which you can also call for information on group and club entry. For all enquiries regarding American marque-related trade stands, telephone 01590 614614.

Entry into the Beaulieu parkland with your American vehicle is from 9.30am when catering will be available.

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.

Admission to the event includes entry to the whole Beaulieu attraction; the National Motor Museum and its exciting BOND IN MOTION exhibition showcasing 50 original James Bond vehicles, World of Top Gear, On Screen Cars, Beaulieu Abbey, and Palace House and gardens.
