The mysterious, helmet-wearing figure, The Stig from BBC’s Top Gear, is set to make an appearance at Beaulieu Supercar Weekend on 3rd and 4th August and returns to the Demonstration Run to show off some impressive driving skills.  

The Demonstration Runs are always a fan favourite for those attending one of the biggest supercar shows on the South Coast as they get to witness some of the most desirable supercars in action as their acceleration, handling and breaking are showcased along Beaulieu’s Chestnut Avenue. This gripping test of man and machine never fails to gather a crowd, and the sights and sounds offer an unmissable experience. Delighted fans will have the opportunity to take their own photographs as part of a free meet and greet with The Stig over the course of the two-day event.
