Simply Vauxhall 2014, Post Event Report
AUTO CENTRAL, UK -- July 28, 2014: Beaulieu’s popular Simply Vauxhall rally, now in its second year, welcomed over 200 Vauxhalls into the picturesque parkland of the National Motor Museum on Sunday 27 July.
All models of Vauxhall were welcome to attend, from veterans and classics to the most modern and up-to-date Corsas, Insignias and Astras. Vehicle owners enjoyed the beautiful sunshine and warm temperatures whilst meeting other like-minded enthusiasts and admiring the cars on display. They also had the opportunity to explore all the features of the Beaulieu visitor attraction, including the National Motor Museum, World of Top Gear, Beaulieu Abbey and Palace House and gardens.
A number of car clubs were in attendance at the rally, including the Vauxhall Drivers’ Club, VXR Online, CAVMK3 Owners’ Club and MIG Performance Vauxhalls Car Club.
During the day, visitors to the Beaulieu attraction were asked to vote for their favourite Vauxhall on display in the People’s Choice Awards. In an afternoon presentation ceremony on the Beaulieu Arena, the owner of the winning vehicle was announced as Emma Gribble from Reading with her 2008 Vauxhall Corsa in Sapphire Black. Emma, a member of Corsa-D UK, was presented with a Beaulieu Trophy by Beaulieu Events Coordinator, Charlotte Mountain. A cavalcade of the top nine Vauxhalls then drove through the attraction grounds.
Simply Vauxhall is part of Beaulieu’s Simply Rallies series, which covers a wide variety of themes, makes and models of vehicle. The next Simply Rallies in the 2014 calendar are Simply Japanese on Sunday 3 August 2014 and Simply Land Rover on Sunday 10 August.
