BEAULIEU’S popular Simply Ford will return on Sunday May 3. Held in the grounds of the National Motor Museum, this celebration of all cars and vans wearing the famous blue oval badge starts off in a busy schedule of Simply Rallies for 2015.
With up to 1,000 Fords of all shapes and sizes expected to attend, Simply Ford has become a firm favourite with enthusiasts, with all Fords welcome to join the display in the parklands and enjoy a fantastic day out.
Whether you own a modern-day Mondeo ST, a classic Fiesta, an iconic Capri, or a pre-war Model Y, you will find yourself in good company. Simply turn up, chat with like-minded enthusiasts and admire the cars.
This year, the event celebrates 50 years of Britain’s favourite van, the Ford Transit. From its birth in 1965, when it raised the bar for van and light truck design, to its current fifth generation, the Transit has become a worldwide success. Owners of all ages and models of Transit are welcome to join the rally.
Among the specialist Ford clubs taking part will be the Ford Owners’ Club, the Focus RS Owners’ Club, the Mondeo Mk2 Owners’ Club and the Zetec S Owners’ Club, each one bringing along a variety of vehicles.
Visitors will have the opportunity to browse a number of trade stands selling Ford-related parts and accessories. Rally participants and Beaulieu’s attraction visitors will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite Ford of the show.
Simply Ford is the first in a line-up of ten Simply Rallies that will be taking place in 2015, which also includes Simply Japanese, Simply Classics & Sports Car and Simply Vauxhall. A full list of Simply dates can be seen on the Beaulieu website, http://www.beaulieu.co.uk/beaulieu-events.
