Simply Porsche Sunday 23rd June 2013
BEAULIEU, UNITED KINGDOM – June 26, 2013: Over 150 examples of the Porsche marque, spanning a range of models, headed to Beaulieu for the first Simply Porsche event, held in the grounds of the National Motor Museum. An enthusiast’s delight, the fantastic display of these iconic cars with their distinctive styling, didn’t disappoint.
All major Porsche models were to be seen, both classic and new, with the 924 Owners Club and Porsche Club GB well represented by their members. Porsche Bournemouth showcased a selection of their new models and Canford Classics displayed a number of classics. In the Display Marquee, the South Hants Model Auto Club put on a display of Porsche marque model cars.
A selection of the best vehicles was chosen to take part in a cavalcade around the parkland, showing off some of the finest examples of the marque.
Throughout the day, Beaulieu’s visitors had an opportunity to vote for their favourite Porsche vehicles in the People’s Choice Awards. The overall winner was Steve Burgess from Chippenham, Wiltshire in a Porsche 911 997 GT3 RS 4.0. This model is the last Special Edition 997, with just 600 manufactured and available in only two shades, black and white. Steve, a lifelong fan of the marque, has owned his Porsche for 12 months and is a member of Porsche Club GB with whom he has already attended a number of rallies and meets.
Simply Porsche is one of the latest additions to Beaulieu’s calendar of Simply events, which has expanded to include a wide variety of themes covering a range of makes and models.
