Simply Ford returns to celebrate the usual suspects and the inspirational Ford Capri 50th anniversary.

Beaulieu’s Simply season returns on Sunday May 5th 2019 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Ford Anglia 105E and 50th anniversary of the Mustang inspiration, the lovable Ford Capri.

Capri and Anglia owners are invited to bring their darling classics and showcase them in designated areas at the heart of the popular event, within the grounds of the beautiful National Motor Museum.

Simply Ford is the biggest in Beaulieu’s range of 10 Simply rallies and promises to be as unmissable as last year’s event, which attracted 3,000 enthusiasts and nearly 1,800 Fords.

The Ford Anglia stands out in the memory of many family motorists, as well as being a firm favourite with racing drivers and customisers over six decades. Event-goers will also be able to see the Anglias on show at Beaulieu, with the 1966 Anglia Super 1200 in the National Motor Museum and the famous ‘flying’ Anglia from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in On Screen Cars.

In the double celebration display, Surrey Capri Club will show a collection of its members’ cars to mark the anniversary of the Capri – which enjoyed a production run spanning 18 years with its fastback shape and also graced the race tracks of Europe.

Simply Ford is always buzzing with amazing cars on packed club stands and 27 owners’ groups and clubs have already booked to take part this year. Flying the flag for the Mondeo will be the ST220 Enthusiasts, Midlands Mondeo Enthusiasts and Ford Mondeo Mk2 Owners Club, as well as displays by Focus Enthusiasts, Hampshire and Berkshire RS Owners Club, Ford All Stars and Oval Outkasts.

A highlight of the day will be the People’s Choice Awards, as visitors and event-goers vote for their favourite Ford of the show, with the winner receiving a Beaulieu trophy.
