Simply Ford 2015 returns on Sunday 3rd May. Beaulieu’s hugely popular celebration of all cars and vans wearing the famous blue oval, kicks off the popular ‘Simply’ car Rallies at the National Motor Museum this year.
A firm favourite with car enthusiasts and blue oval fans alike, with up to 1000 Fords of all shapes and sizes expected to attend the Simply Ford 2015 event.
Simply Ford 2015 – What’s on?
Whether you own a modern-day Mondeo ST, a classic Fiesta, an iconic Capri, or a pre-war Model Y, all Fords are welcome to join the display in the parklands and enjoy the day out.
This year, the event celebrates 50 years of the Ford Transit, Britain’s favourite van. 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 come along and join the rally.
Events Co-ordinator Andy Ollerenshaw said: “We are proud to celebrate the anniversary of the Transit, while show regulars Ford Heritage will be bringing along eight examples of this legendary vehicle, from the first Transit ever built to the V8-powered ‘Supervan.’
Among the number of 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, with a variety of their members’ vehicles attending. The Hendy Ford dealership will also be displaying a selection of the manufacturer’s latest cars and vans.
In addition to the hundreds of Fords on display, visitors will have the opportunity to browse numerous trade stands selling Ford-related parts and accessories.
Rally participants and Beaulieu’s attraction visitors, also can vote for their favourite Ford of the show, with the winner receiving the People’s Choice Award.
