BEAULIEU, UNITED KINGDOM – July 3, 2013: Simply Alfa Romeo succeeded in turning the Beaulieu parkland mostly red as over 200 of these stunning Italian vehicles sped into Beaulieu to soak up the sun on a perfect day.

The glorious weather seemed to reflect Italy’s sunny climes with the line-up of beautiful Italian motors gleaming in the brilliant sunshine and visitors enjoying the warm weather in the picturesque grounds of the National Motor Museum.

There was a great mix of Alfas on display, as well as newer models there was a lovely selection of classics including four rare Montreals. The Wessex Section of the Alfa Owners’ Club arrived en mass to enjoy the day with owners putting on a good display of their prized Alfas. Meridien Motors of Portsmouth and James Browning, Salisbury showcased a selection of their newest models and Turbo Dynamics of Christchurch was on hand with turbo accessories for sale.

Throughout the day, Beaulieu’s visitors had an opportunity to vote for their favourite Alfa Romeo in the People’s Choice Awards. The winner was a1963 Alfa Romeo Giulia, owned by Paul Jarrold from Uploders, near Brigport. Just 400 of this model were built between 1963 and 1964, survivors are quite rare with less than 50 still to be found in the UK and not all running. Paul was presented with a special edition Beaulieu Trophy by Nigel Varney, representing the Alfa Romeo Owners’ Club Wessex Section.

The Autolusso Award for Best in Show, sponsored by the Alfa Romeo specialist garage in Bournemouth, went to Charles Lumby and his 1974 Montreal. The Montreal was first introduced as a concept car at Expo 67 in Montreal, Canada and proved so popular that it was put into production. Today, it is viewed as a seriously desirable classic car. Charles has owned his Montreal for 22 years and takes it out regularly to Alfa events around the country.

Simply Alfa Romeo will return in 2014.
