• Beaulieu Custom & Hot Rod Show 2016

    Fathers Day 19th June 2016 was a brilliant day at Beaulieu. Many hot rod and custom cars took park in the day. Great entertainment including dancing and music. Great stalls, many places for food and drink. to top is all off there was a brilliant turn out of vehicles.
    The event was open to all hot rod, custom, classic american or chops and bobbers cars and mod era mopeds. Separate areas of the show field will be set aside for pre-1980 classic cars, vans, motorcycles and scooters.

    This was the second year that the Solent Renegades work with Beaulieu to put on the Hot Rod & custom Show for 2016. hopefully its the start of many years to come. We had a convoy of 30+ cars which left Rownhams Services at 8am to convoy down to Beaulieu. A great sight to see a long queue of American cars following. Around 10 vehicles camped over night at Beaulieu on Saturday, including myself & Sarah, ideal for setting up the next morning before the Renegades convoy arrived.

    Prize giving for various categories including the Beaulieu people's choice, best American, best hot rod and many more. The Best American and People's choice trophies has the Solent Renegades logo on them which was brilliant to see.



    Photos from Beaulieu Hot rod & Custom Show 2015, lots of great photos in there and great quality of cars, can spend hours looking though pages of people pride and joy.
    The voice over the PA system is John Price, you will recognise the voice as the chap fro Santapod, he has probably heard that many times before. Judging of the vehicles is done my Mike Renault.
    Beaulieu also have some great photos on their website along with the prize giving from 2015. Beaulieu Photos from 2015

    All trade stands are handled by Beaulieu and pre-entry bookings, their website Beaulieu Hot Rod and Custom Drive-In Day, and their facebook page for Beaulieu Hot Rod & custom Show 2016




    So make a day to remember ans come along to the Beaulieu hot rod & custom Show 2016

      Yep, I certainly need a proof reader. The aim of the article was to announce the date for this year. I copied most of the article from last year which needed to be more re-written than it was.

      A quick pan around so we can see how buzzing the place was. Loads of public and cars, and a great gazebo.

      lol, I was looking for Ricky as Malc had a beer for him, you'd think someone in a cowboy hat that as only just entered the crowed could be found. However I never saw him no matter how much I looked from that good view point.
