The iconic voice of Formula One motorsport Murray Walker OBE will be the first celebrity honoured with a special tribute collection at the new Beaulieu Supercar Weekend on August 20th and 21st.
Murray’s Magnificent Machines will feature some of his favourite cars and motorcycles from half a century of F1, race and rally in a stunning setting on the lawns of Palace House, which has been home to the Montagu family since 1538.
The veteran commentator will talk about his chosen collection and career highlights in conversation with racing driver and TV presenter Tiff Needell at a Saturday night Gala Evening. The talk will be followed by an exclusive evening of live music and fireworks. Tickets to this very special Gala Evening are now on sale as part of the VIP experience.
Beaulieu Managing Director Russell Bowman said: “We are delighted that Murray has accepted Lord Montagu’s invitation to be part of our first Beaulieu Supercar Weekend. Not only is Murray a motor racing icon but he has a long history with Beaulieu, which makes it natural that we pay tribute to him at this special event.”
The high octane Beaulieu Supercar Weekend will be the first event to run under a strategic new partnership between Beaulieu Enterprises and Brand Events.
Building on the popularity of Beaulieu’s Supercar Showdown, which has run as a one-day event in the parkland of the National Motor Museum for the last five years, it will offer a spectacular range of new features, making it the must-visit supercar event for 2016.
o An eye-catching display of more than 350 supercars set against the stunning backdrop of the Beaulieu parkland for a two-day celebration of the supercar, its icons, its history and its future.
o Supercar to Race Car will trace the exotic origins of our modern GT race cars and the influence of the track on today’s everyday supercars.
o Ferruccio Lamborghini: 100 Years will honour the man who brought us many of the most memorable supercars ever made and celebrate in appropriately flamboyant style the centenary of Ferruccio Lamborghini’s birth.
o The Hypercar Holy Trinity blends heart-stopping looks with pulse-racing performance and brings together the undisputed kings of the modern supercar class – the Porsche 918, the Ferrari LaFerrari and the McLaren P1.
o The Super-SUV Secret Garden showcases modern monsters unreliant on smooth tarmac for their supercar thrills. Each is in excess of 500hp and is just as capable of crossing continents in a single day as its low-slung siblings but with enough room to take the family along too!
o An extended Parade for visitors to enjoy even more supercars close up and in action as they make their way to the start line for the higher speed track section.
o An Action Arena featuring stunt performances, precision driving demonstrations, start-ups, sound-offs and all kinds of fast-road runs throughout the weekend.
o Manufacturer Village areas for special display cars.
o VIP Experience will provide exclusive access to the Palace House Hospitality Enclosure. For those wanting to also attend the Gala Evening, glamorous camping will be available with Pillow Camping’s pre-pitched and furnished tents.
