Some of the sleekest machines ever to grace the roads will be arriving in style at Beaulieu on Sunday July 8th to join Simply Jaguar, the rally that celebrates Jaguar sports car and saloons of all ages.
Returning for its third year, a sparkling selection of Jaguars old and new will be at the heart of this popular event in the grounds of the National Motor Museum, as their owners park up to enjoy the show, admire the variety of cars on display and chat with like-minded enthusiasts.
With so many awe-inspiring designs in Jaguar’s back-catalogue, there will be something to please every fan of these revered drivers’ cars. Look out for examples of the latest F-type, F-Pace and modern and classic versions of the XK, not to mention the legendary E-type and collectable XJ-S.
Sports cars will not be the only impressive machines on display, with a variety of Jaguar sporting saloons expected. Classics such as the MkI, MkII and MkX, modern S-type, X-type, XF, XJ and luxurious Daimler-badged models are all welcome.
If a particular Jaguar catches your eye, then cast your vote in the People’s Choice Award. Throughout the day, rally participants and Beaulieu visitors will vote for their favourite car of the show, with the winner receiving a commemorative Beaulieu trophy and Autoglym prize, before leading a cavalcade of the most popular cars through the grounds.
For those driving Jaguars into Beaulieu to take part in the show, participant tickets are £10 an adult, £5 a child (aged 5-16) if bought in advance online, or £12 an adult and £6 a child if bought on arrival.
