All Ford owners were invited to drive into Beaulieu on Sunday 5th May and park up within the museum complex for what was a superb day out for both Ford owners and enthusiasts.
From custom Fiestas, restored Mk1 Escorts and even the odd Transit, Beaulieu's Simply Ford show is one of the UK's premier Ford events. It was a great opportunity to admire a stunning range of vehicles and to connect with fellow enthusiasts.
All participants had the opportunity to be chosen as the winner of the People’s Choice Award, selected by public vote. Prizes were be awarded to the winner and runners-up.

The Brabazon Restaurant will be open for bacon rolls, cakes, teas and coffee.
Cars cannot leave and re-enter the grounds for the Simply Rally without a further fee being paid to cover the occupants.
