The likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini and other supercar marques will be coming down to Beaulieu on Bank Holiday Monday (August 5th) for a showdown.
Two hundred high performance vehicles are set to make their appearance at the National Motor Museum. That’s not to mention all the car clubs and dealerships who will be present on the day.
Among the cars that have been booked in are a Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari 458 Speciale, Alfa Romeo 8C, McLaren 12C, Jaguar XJ220 and a Bugatti Veyron.
Dealerships who will be in attendance include the Ford UK Heritage collection, Morgan Motor Company, Meridien Group, Porsche Club GB and the Aston Martin and Lamborghini Owners’ Club.
The cars will be pitted against each other on the Demonstration Run, which will be happening at midday and 14:30 BST for the joy of the crowds. Visitors will get a great view of these supercars as they speed around the parklands of the National Motor Museum. They will start off at the iconic Dunlop Bridge, which has been provided by Dunlop for the day.
Spectators will also get to show their appreciation for their favourite vehicle by voting in the People’s Choice Award. The winning seven vehicles will get together after the second Demonstration Run for a cavalcade through the grounds. They will stop at Palace House for a presentation ceremony, where the winner and two runners-up will be presented with a Beaulieu Trophy and a pack of Autoglym cleaning products.
For those who love taking pictures of supercars, there will be a Supercar Showdown photography competition too and the prize is a family ticket to the Beaulieu Fireworks Spectacular on November 1st.
As well as the chance to watch the Demonstration Run, tickets to the event grant visitors access to the National Motor Museum. Here they get the chance to see two new displays – World of Top Gear and On Screen Cars.
The event starts at 10:00 BST and visitors are advised to arrive early to make sure they can get a good spot from the Demonstration Run.
