    Beaulieu have responded to my email :

    " Hi Chris,

    Thank you for your email.

    Unfortunately, this is not something that we are able to do at our Simply Mercedes rally on 23rd August and due to the latest government guidance surrounding mass gatherings, we have decided not to accept any club bookings this year.

    Alternatively, I could suggest that you arrive together as all cars will be parked as and when they arrive.

    In addition to this, the capacity that we have in place is 750 participants (adults and children) which means that if we reach capacity the number of cars would be approximately 350.

    We hope that you will still be able to enjoy Simply Mercedes this year under the new Covid-19 format change and we hope that we will be able to accept club bookings again in 2021.

    Kind Regards,

    The Beaulieu Events Team

    01590 614614 "

    So, looks like get there early and all meet up in the car park before driving in in convoy!

    Sorry but missed this thread, got my ticket a week ago and bringing my R129 definitely- happy to try and arrange a meet up but I don’t seem to have a MB forum sticker to identify myself.

    Mark, go to the forum/club shop and order one, then PM @mark.s to tell him about the order, you'll have one before the meet!

    Go to the forum shop to order one then PM @mark.s to tell him, that way you should have one before the meet - cost IIRC is £2.50.

    Depending on where you are coming in from you might like to know:

    The CLS convoy will be meeting up at 8am (St Catherine's park and ride - SO23 9NP)
    Wait 30 mins for everyone.. 40mins to Beaulieu.

    Does not matter if you don't own a CLS but would be good if were all together.

    @mark.s have you tried asking Beaulieu for a dedicated space for MBOA, I had no joy but maybe you swing more weight and can pull it off! MissyD and we are at a hotel near Beaulieu, and IIRC silvergriff is in a nearby B&B, suggestion is we meet up in the ordinary car park near the entrance and convoy in.

    Hi, that suits me to meet in car park just before the main entrance but will go with the consensus as it would be great to arrive on mass together as a MB Club

    The Beaulieu MM are making a clear stand of no club gatherings but clubs members can come in.
    Very strange rules so like I said if we can group outside and plan to go in / line up together we will at best be close by.

    There is a big car park on the right as you head in. Ample space as this is the main car park.
    To access the inside area you need to follow the road up and round to the right. Pretty sure it will be sign posted or will have staff directing.
