On 10th October the Allard Chrysler Action Group (ACAG) were delighted to receive news from the International Historic Motoring Awards 2013 that they has been put forward for not one but two awards at this year’s award ceremony.
The ACAG Chairman Brain Taylor was quoted saying “Wow! To say I was ‘gob-smacked’ understates how I felt. I had to phone Doug Hill, Museum Manager at Beaulieu to check that it wasn’t a hoax”.
A collection of classic cars belonging to motor enthusiast Stephen Johns will be sold at auction next month.
Mr Johns' 23 cherished vehicles – including a 1927 Bugatti Type 40 Tourer and a 1972 Ferrari 246GTS 'Dino' Spider – currently make up the exhibits of the Exmoor Classic Car Museum, which can be seen in the Somerset village of Porlock.
The motoring extravaganza at Beaulieu over the coming months aims to offer an array of delights for classic, performance and imported car enthusiasts from across the UK and even further afield.
A sleepy town in Hampshire for much of the year, Beaulieu will again be hosting a festival of treats for motoring fans in summer 2012 running from July through to September.
Fans of classic vehicles from across the UK and in Scotland in particular have been urged to come out in force to show their support for the annual Scottish Malts rally, which will be taking place next week.
Organised by the Historic Endurance Rallying Organisation (Hero), the Scottish Malts will see participants embarking on a 1,000-mile journey throughout Scotland, running from April 30th to May 4th.
This year's National Austin 7 Rally is set to take place in Beaulieu in July and will see the celebration of 90 years of the iconic vehicle.
The classic Austin 7 was only produced between 1922 and 1939, but it has built a massive following of fans in the years following and the car now holds a place among the elite of classic motor vehicles, although only around 8,000 are believed to still be in existence.
