Post by londiniumperson » Sun Mar 28, 2021 2:00 pm

Assuming that restrictions are lifted as planned, Beaulieu, Hampshire is due to have their first 'Simply Electric' event launching in 2021 on 23 May.

If anyone's interested, here are the details:

Sounds interesting, might be worth showing up.
Anyone else thinking of going?
So we can line up and show all 5 colour choices?

Looks interesting. Would take me two charging stops on the way there - so 2.5 hrs!
Might be worth it if a gang goes

I'm not sure yet if I'll be going, though it would be a good range test because ABRP & ZapMap are suggesting that the journey will consume 49% battery each way & it must be over 20 years that I last went to the motor museum.

If we can get a group that want to be parked together (possibly in the club's area), I have had the following reply from the event organiser:
Unfortunately due to the club demand at the event, if there are less than the 5 cars I probably won’t be able to provide a dedicated space. However if there are less, the cars are parked on a first come first serve basis so if you arrive in a convoy, you will most likely be parked together anyway.
If anyone here wants to, we can keep a list on this thread of those interested & I'd be willing to get in touch with the organiser again after 11 April with an idea of numbers and then see how we go from there.

Sounds like a cool day out, grabbed a ticket. It's 200 miles to get there from Staffordshire but any excuse for a roadtrip!

Just tried to buy 2 tickets, but site keeps telling me I've been “timed out” ?
Are tickets sold out already?

I just bought mine, so there should still some left.

Your post prompted me to buy some tickets, initially I also received a timeout message once I'd clicked the final purchase button even though I still had over 11 mins left to complete the purchase.
The issue my end seemed to be general mobile internet connectivity issues because I couldn't access any website for a short time. I tried again before the timer expired and the purchase went through OK eventually.

If anyone on the forum that has purchased tickets but not said so and would like to be parked up together, then please post a comment saying so and I'll let the organisers know how many of us they'll be.
It's likely that we won't get a 'club' space, so we'll have to try and meet up nearby outside the event and arrive in convoy.

If anybody knows the area well, please can they suggest a spot where half a dozen or so of us can park up and wait for the others to arrive for our 'convoy'. Initially I thought of the Hythe Tesco superstore at:
Sizer Way, Southampton, SO45 5JA
however that could be very busy considering that it's one of the closest EV charge points to Beaulieu, so don't expect to be able to charge there on the day.
