Default Simply Audi at Beaulieu 2nd Aug 2020

Hi All,
Anyone going to this re-scheduled event this year.
It is taking place this Sunday 2nd August 2020.
Tickets are limited to 500 for social distancing measures.
Entry is by Advanced ticket only (10.50 per person) & includes entrance to the Museum and Top Gear Event
Entry is only if you are in an Audi vehicle
No Club stands, due to the social distancing.
Weather looks promising.
I know certain members of the AOC are going, just wondered if any A8/S8 Forum members are going.
Would be good to catch up with a few of you
David

I didn't know it was on, was quite near there just over a week ago!
But it is the day of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone....

You could always record the F1 British Grand Prix and watch it when you get home. That's my plan anyway

I'm hoping to be there David it's incredibly well organised at Beaulieu and they are parking people in socially distant spaces etc.
Hoping to meet up with other AOC owners including some other A8's and enter in a line so we hopefully get parked up near each other. We are meeting at a car park called the pig pen enclosure on the main road in about 10 minutes from Beaulieu at about 8:45-9:00 and setting off at 09:20 am to get there for when they allow entry. Not sure how long I'll stay but will see how it all feels when we arrive. Hopefully it's going to be a nice sunny day 🤠

Hi Neil,
Do you have a postcode for this carpark or Long/Lats.
Can't seem to find the Pig Pen carpark on the internet
Thanks
David

I think it's maybe called the Pig Bush Inclosure? https://lmgtfy.com/?q=Pig+Bush+Inclosure
