Workshop - Lehrling in Beaulieu
Mittwoch, 20. September 2017

The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu has appointed a new workshop apprentice as an investment in the future of its historic vehicle collection at a time when few specialist workshops are taking on trainees.
New apprentice Emily Leese, aged 18, joins the museum’s experienced workshop team to help maintain and restore its collection of more than 250 historic vehicles. A young woman in an industry traditionally dominated by older men, Emily’s training will help to keep alive the essential skills needed to look after and preserve the museum’s remarkable machines.
When she completes her apprenticeship, Emily will become the first to do so since Museum Manager and Chief Engineer Doug Hill finished his apprenticeship 40 years ago.

Not even Sunday’s rain which followed Saturday’s sunshine could dampen the spirits of the dedicated bargain-hunters, who searched for good quality treasure at Trunk Traders.

Beaulieu’s International Autojumble
Dienstag, 29. August 2017

Beaulieu will start up the National Motor Museum’s legendary Lotus 49 at the International Autojumble to mark 50 years of the popular event which began life in the same year that the car was built
The F1 car will roar into life on Sunday September 3rd at 3pm in front of the museum as part of the weekend event. The legendary racing car, which was built in 1967 with chassis number 3, was famously campaigned by Graham Hill and is one of the most iconic racers of its generation. The roar of its 2993cc V8 engine is sure to impress show-goers.
The Lotus is stepping in for the start-up of the museum’s 1950 BRM V16 which has had to be postponed due to technical problems. Testing in the final stages of the BRM’s engine rebuild revealed that a set of oil seals needed to be remade before the project was complete.

In Coventry hat das Unternehmen für sieben Millionen Pfund (ca. 7,9 Millionen Euro) mehr als nur ein Gebäude für die Traditionspflege errichtet – entstanden ist ein einmaliges Werk für alte Autos. „Dies ist eine Traumfabrik, wo Träume gemacht und Träume wahr werden“, schwärmt John Edwards, Managing Director Special Operations bei den Briten. In seinem Bereich ist das Projekt Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works angesiedelt.
