Now with a new name — Simply Classics & Sports Car — the fourth-annual road rally and car show takes place August 24 at Britain’s National Motor Museum at Beaulieu./p>

The road rally part of the program involves whatever routes people and their classics and sports cars take through the New Forest to arrive at the museum. The event is open to any pre-1989 classic or sports car.

“British sports car manufacturer, MG, is this year celebrating its 90th anniversary and will be the featured marque at Simply Classics & Sports Car,” the news release reports.

“In a special display area at the event, MGs of all ages will be on show from early VAs and TAs to the ever popular MGB and Midget, as well as modern classics such as the MGF and MG TF, plus the current MG3 and MG6 models, with displays from regional MG clubs and individual owners as well as a number of trade stands.”

A special parade of MGs will take place in the afternoon, and in addition to a Beaulieu Trophy for the People’s Choice award, there will be a second such trophy presented to the People’s Choice just among the MGs.

Entry fees for car owners and their passengers include admission to the museum, the World of Top Gear, Beaulieu Abby and the Palace House and gardens.
