Beaulieu’s second Simply Audi event will build on the success of last year’s debut, which saw as many as 485 Audis drive into the attraction to join the display.
From the compact A1 and A2 to the luxury A8, high-performance RS, TT and R8 supercar, every type of Audi are welcome to take part. Owners are invited to park in the picturesque parkland, chat with like-minded enthusiasts and compare the classic styling of the Quattro with the modern curves of the TT, before enjoying one of the south’s leading visitor attractions.
A highlight of the day will be the People’s Choice Award, as visitors and event-goers vote for their favourite Audi of the show, with the winner receiving a Beaulieu trophy.
Head inside the National Motor Museum to see one of the most iconic Audis on display, the awesome 1983 Audi Quattro A2 rally car which was driven to victory in numerous international events by motorsport aces Stig Blomqvist, Hannu Mikkola and John Bosch.
