BEAULIEU, UNITED KINGDOM – May 6, 2013: On Sunday 23rd June, Beaulieu will be welcoming Porsches of every shape and size into the grounds of the National Motor Museum for a brand new event, Simply Porsche. A must for any Porsche enthusiast, this fantastic rally is open to all Porsche owners.

Porsches of all ages and models are eligible to join the display of this iconic marque in the Beaulieu parkland.

This is a great opportunity to view hundreds of Porsches, meet up with other like-minded enthusiasts, and enjoy a great day out at the Beaulieu attraction. See over 250 vehicles on show in the National Motor Museum, from F1 racers to Land Speed Record Breakers and don’t miss BOND IN MOTION, the world’s largest ever exhibition of original James Bond film vehicles. The collection includes the Lotus Esprit S1 ‘submarine’ car from THE SPY WHO LOVED ME, a QUANTUM OF SOLACE Aston Martin DBS stunt car and two Honda CRF250R motorcycles and a Land Rover Defender 110 from the latest Bond film to be released, SKYFALL.

Enter World of Top Gear to see genuine vehicles created by presenters Jeremy, Richard and James in their challenges on the BBC television show, including Richard and Jeremy’s “Grannymobile” and the P45 micro car driven by Jeremy through a shopping centre and the British Library on the latest series.

You can also enjoy strolling through the beautifully-kept gardens to Palace House, home of the Montagu family since 1538 and the 13th Century Beaulieu Abbey, or you can explore the grounds by hopping onboard the high-level Monorail or open-topped veteran London bus.

As with all Simply Rallies, visitors to Beaulieu on the day of the event will be invited to vote for their favourite vehicle in the People’s Choice Awards. The owner of the winning car will receive a Beaulieu Trophy in an afternoon presentation ceremony and will be given the opportunity to lead a cavalcade of Porsches through the attraction.

Please telephone 01590 612888 or visit www.beaulieushop.co.uk to book advance tickets. For all Porsche-related trade stand enquiries, telephone 01590 614614. All other visitors should enter Beaulieu via the main Reception at normal Beaulieu attraction admission prices.
