Beaulieu goes back to its French roots


Beaulieu is going Gallic for the day on 8 July when the National Motor Museum hosts its Simply French rally.

All French marques are welcome, from major manufacturers such as Renault, Peugeot and Citroën, to lesser known such as Aixam and Sovam.

The day – which kicks of with coffee and croissants, naturellement – will feature a cavalcade around the attraction and a display in the Arena of a selection of vehicles chosen from all the rally participants.

Visitors will be given the opportunity to vote for their favourite vehicle in the line-up, and  the Brabazon Restaurant will be taking on a French theme for the day, serving foods inspired by the country.

For entrants arriving on the day in their French vehicle and participating in the event, individual ticket prices are £10 per adult and £5 per child.

Camping in the Beaulieu parkland is available for rally participants on the nights of the 7 and 8 July at £7 per person per night. Pre-booking for camping is essential.

If Beaulieu is going back to it's French roots, will the name of the town be correctly pronounced 'BOWLYU' instead of the usual 'BEWLEE' for the weekend?
