Beaulieu’s successful 2021 season of motoring events will be drawing to a close with Simply Smart on Sunday 7th November, with all Smart cars invited to take part in the rally.

Look out for all sorts of Smart cars as they drive into the grounds of the National Motor Museum to join the colourful display, from the classic ForTwo, to the family-friendly ForFour and sporty Smart Roadster. With all variants welcome to join the rally, there is sure to be something for every fan of this cheeky and cheerful urban classic.
