Things to do this summer for motor enthusiasts

As one of the headline sponsors of this year’s Supercar Weekend hosted at Beaulieu, A-Plan were due to have a stand at the event on 8-9 August but unfortunately, due to COVID-19, this event has been cancelled.

But for motor enthusiasts, there’s still plenty to do. Not only has Beaulieu opened its gardens again, it plans to open the National Motor Museum from 4 July, so you can still visit. They are also planning to go ahead with smaller Simply rallies events – we’ve included some of these in our summer motor events round up below.  

And whether you want to reminisce about last year’s Supercar weekend or want to know what it’s all about, check out Beaulieu’s video here.
