Beaulieu Simply Land Rover show celebrates marque at 70
12 April 2018 - auto classics
Simply Land Rover will take place on Sunday June 24 at Beaulieu, celebrating 70 years of the best 4x4 with a forest drive and autojumble
The National Motor Museum in Beaulieu will celebrate 70 years of Britain's iconic 4x4 with Simply Land Rover on Sunday June 24, hosting a Land Rover-themed autojumble and epic off-road Forest Drive alongside hundreds of Land Rover's finest offers on show.
For the first time, the dedicated Land Rover rally will feature Simply Rummage, a mecca for Landy enthusiasts seeking spare parts and hard-to-find memorabilia for sale or to swap.
A further show highlight will be the return of the popular Beaulieu Forest Drive, held in association with Land Rover Experience West Country, allowing keen drivers to practice their off-roading skills.
Entry to the off-road course is not included in the initial ticket price. For more details on taking your own Land Rover around the exclusive trek, see the Beaulieu event page.
Any 4x4 wearing the green oval is welcome – regardless of age, model or condition – to park up in the grounds of the National Motor Museum. From the legendary Series I through the Range Rover P38, Discovery and Freelander to the last Defender, expect to witness a full showcase of the marque's history in this 70th celebration year.
All manner of home-built Land Rover derivatives are anticipated too – from barn find restorations to rally wagons and the finest of customised models.
Rally participants and Beaulieu visitors can vote for their favourite Land Rover throughout the day, culminating in the People's Choice Award. The winner will receive a Beaulieu trophy and Autoglym prize.
