In the 70th anniversary year of the Land Rover next year, Beaulieu will also add the new feature of Simply Rummage to its popular Simply Land Rover event on Sunday June 24th.
Beaulieu Events Manager Judith Maddox said: “At the request of owners and enthusiasts’ groups, we are pleased to announce the addition of Simply Audi to our range of popular Simply events. We are looking forward to attracting big numbers in its first year.
“Simply Rummage is also an exciting new feature, with a special autojumble devoted to offering much sought-after spare parts for the nation’s favourite 4×4.
“Our Simply season has grown from strength to strength in 2017, with many of this year’s events breaking previous records, and we hope to build on that again next year.”
