Beaulieu’s Simply Japanese Returns For 2022

Datsun Type 14 1935

On July 24, one of the biggest and most popular Simply rallies by Beaulieu, the Simply Japanese will return with a variety of Japanese cars and motorcycles. The National Motor Museum will be the venue for Simply Japanese, an ideal place for a huge family day out.

Last year, more than 1,000 Japanese cars were displayed during the event. Some of the Japanese cars showcased include the Nissan Skyline, 200 SX, 350Z, Cube, GT4, MR2, Toyota Supra, Mazda RX-7, MX-5, Honda Civic Type R, Honda Acty Kei truck, and a Subaru Impreza WRX. All manner of marques and models from different ages were showcased last year and the line up this year is promising to be as impressive.

Owners of Japanese cars and motorcycles are invited to join the event no matter what they own, be it a luxury saloon, cheerful camper van, economy hatchbacks or high-powered performance cars. This is the perfect chance for owners to talk about cars, admire those on display, and fully enjoy all the features of the Beaulieu attraction.

Guests to Simply Japanese could also check out Beaulieu’s 1935 Datsun Type 14 saloon inside the National Motor Museum. The saloon symbolizes the start of the global success of the Japanese motor industry during the twentieth century. The Datsun is one of the many fascinating features in the new exhibition, The Story of Motoring in 50 Objects. It was set up to celebrate the National Motor Museum’s 50th anniversary.
