| 17 Aug 2011

Beaulieu’s fifth annual Supercar Start-Up fires into action on 29 August. Organisers say this year’s event will be the biggest yet, with nearly 50 supercars confirmed to appear, including the 1928 Mercedes-Benz and ex-Graham Hill Lotus 49 from the National Motor Museum collection. 

They will be joined by some of the elite of the supercar world, a Ferrari Enzo, McLaren F1, Pagani Zonda, Maserati GranTurismo Stradale, Audi R8, the latest Ferrari 458 Italia and the new and highly exciting gull wing Mercedes SLS.

At midday, a selection of the supercars will take part in a Demo Run through the Beaulieu parkland so visitors can see then in action.

Graham Robson will provide the commentarry and a People’s Choice Award will be presented to the public's favourite supercar in attendance, the winner receiving a Beaulieu trophy and £100 prize money. All the voters will go into a draw and one will win a ride in the lead car in a Supercar Cavalcade.
