Hundreds of Austin Sevens are expected to attend the 51st National Rally that will be held at Beaulieu on 7 July.
The meeting is expected to attract thousands of people from around the world as they compete for Best in Show, which last year was won by Mervyn Hoyle’s fabulous van – an exact replica of the one used by his parents for their grocery business during WW2.
While Sevens make up the core of the event all pre-1973 vehicles are eligible to join in.
This summer it will feature a spectacular display of trials cars on the banking around the central arena, with passenger rides up for grabs, and there will be a strong Gallic flavour thanks to the Tacot Club from Calais.
