Simply Smart, the final rally in Beaulieu’s busy 2016 calendar of motoring events, will return on Sunday 13th November.

Simply Smart, the final rally in Beaulieu’s busy 2016 calendar of motoring events, will return on Sunday 13thNovember, with Smart cars of all models driving into the grounds of the National Motor Museum to join a colourful display.

 Smart enthusiasts will also be able to see quirky personalised examples, finished in a variety of bright aftermarket colour schemes, as well as factory-spec versions.


Events Co-ordinator Charlotte Mountain said: “We are very excitied to see the return of this popular celebration of such a well-loved marque. The owners always bring along a varied and colourful array of Smarts to display, with the event giving them a chance to catch up and compare their cars.”
Simply Smart is traditionally held on Remembrance Sunday, which this year falls on 13th November. A two-minute silence will be held during the event at 11am, which visitors are invited to take part in.
Throughout the day, Beaulieu visitors will have the chance to vote for their favourite car of the show in the People’s Choice Award. 
The owner of the Smart that receives the greatest number of votes, will be presented with a commemorative Beaulieu trophy and special Autoglym prize, before leading a cavalcade of the most popular cars through the attraction grounds.
