• Beaulieu Custom & Hot Rod Show 2018

    Attachment 79135Fathers Day 17th June 2018 is the day for the Hot rod & Custom Car show at Beaulieu. A brilliant day last year. Many hot rod and custom cars took part 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. Between 5000 and 6000 people came through the gate, all 10 ticket queues working flat out.

    The event is 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 VW's which will be there the day before at another show

    This will be the forth year that the Solent Renegades work with Beaulieu to put on the Hot Rod & custom Show for 2018.

    Last year 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.

    The Mariachi band is always great for entertainment, walking around, getting the crowd going.

    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 had 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.

      Was very hot last year, good job we had the gazebo for shelter. It was a brilliant turn out. Fingers crossed for another good one.

      Agreed. A good show in 2017, but it will undoubtedly clash with Billing Summer Nats.

      Hi,

      Are you guys still planning on meeting at Rownhams for this?
      If you are, I’m hoping to join you. After a year of being broken, I’ve finally had my Mustang repaired (transmission rebuild) and managed to get it running. This will be it’s first outing out for a day trip in ‘flipping’ ages.

      So who’s coming and what are you bringing to the convoy!?

      Cheers

      Jamie

      Think some are camping but there normally is a crowd of V8 hooligans that meet up there around the 8 to 8.30 mark but hopefully Dan will be along soon to confirm this or some other V8 hooligan can confirm meeting time.

      Some photos from Beaulieu. http://www.solent-renegades.co.uk/me...ay-2018-a.html
      I probably only got around half the cars, soo much there, and little time with setting up, and walking around with the judges. Loads of people there and loads of cars, will be interesting to see the numbers which I will get from Beaulieu and results from previous years. They said its the best year so far.

      Thanks Darren for helping out the Capri. The Capri was coming on a trailer, but as he was getting on the road navigating some tight turns near his house one of the wheels failed, so had to get home. He still wanted to get the Capri to Beaulieu but only had 2 seats, it is road legal. It was Tony, his wife and kid that were going. so Darren came to the rescue and picked up tony's wife to take to Beaulieu. Thanks ever so much for doing that Darren much appreciated.

      This is the Capri


      1500hp Twin turbo 9 litre Capri, that was at the pod a couple of weekends ago, running some great run, with the highest terminal speed that weekend. He almost made it into the 9's but traction an issue.

      Good write up on the Beaulieu show.
      The Art of Kustom launched at Beaulieu’s biggest and best hot rod & custom event | Beaulieu, New Fores

      As many as 5,077 event-goers (up from 4,091 last year) revelled in the festival atmosphere of the Hot Rod & Custom Drive-In Day, with more dressed up in retro 1950s-style clothing than ever. The number of hot rods, custom cars and bikes was up by 31 per cent from last year, from 499 to 655.
      Wow what an increase in numbers. We thought it was busier than last year, no we know why, with an extra 1000 people there.
