The first Beaulieu ‘Simply Italian’ event takes place on Sunday, May 22.

Owners of Italian vehicles are invited to bring their car or motorcycle to Beaulieu, both classic and new, and become part of the event.

All Italian cars, from Alfa Romeo, Ferrari and Fiat to Maserati and Lamborghini and motorcycles, including Aprilia, Agusta, Benelli and Ducati, are welcome.

All owners taking part have an opportunity to enter the Pride of Ownership competition with the winner receiving a £100 cash prize and a Beaulieu trophy. The winner will be one of 20 vehicles chosen by the judging panel to go on display in the Main Arena and take part in a cavalcade.

For entrants arriving on the day in their Italian vehicle and joining the event on the Beaulieu parkland, individual prices are adult £10 and child £5.

To book in advance or for more information about group or club entry, telephone 01590 612888. All other entries will be via Beaulieu main reception at normal admission prices.

Entry into the Beaulieu Parkland with your Italian vehicle is from 8.30am – the Brabazon Restaurant will be open for bacon rolls, cakes, teas and coffees.
