Heritage 100

The National Motor Museum Trust has become a member of Heritage100. This new initiative funded by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council has brought together a number of major museums and archives in the area to work together using their diverse collections and social media technology to reach new audiences.

 

My Favourite Object

One of the key aims of Heritage100 is to engage with new audiences. Visitor figures for the National Motor Museum showed females to be in the minority and the Hertiage100 project provided an ideal opportunity to redress the balance.

Museum Tours and Workshops

As part of the Heritage100 project ladies from around the New Forest came through the National Motor Museum’s doors to take part in specially designed interactive tours, focusing on women in motoring.

The Chalkboard Choices tour encouraged participants to explore the Museum and choose the vehicle they wanted to own, the perfect escape vehicle and the vehicle they would not like to drive. The results can be viewed in this movie.

Brockenhurst College

A key element of Heritage100 focuses on community engagement. In collaboration with Future Creative, the National Motor Museum Trust worked on two projects with students at Brockenhurst College with the aim of making motoring heritage more relevant to young people.

 

Outreach

As part of the Heritage 100 project, staff at The National Motor Museum Trust collaborated with Future Creative to develop an outreach programme working with community groups in Hampshire.

Conservation of the Percy Lambert racing silks 

After many years of trying to raise funds for the conservation of Percy Lambert’s racing silks, we are delighted to announce that funding has been secured through The Arts Council Designation Development Fund. This has allowed us to commission interventive conservation treatment to stabilise and support the silks.

Highlights of the Vehicle Collection

Beaulieu Racer Game

Beaulieu Racer Game featuring the Austin Seven Tourer

The National Motor Museum has collaborated with Southampton Solent University to create an exciting motor racing game and exhibition space for our visitors. The project is jointly funded by Southampton Solent University and the European ‘VIVID’ initiative which seeks to enhance visual design in the heritage sector.

The Beaulieu Racer video game is based on vehicles from the Museum’s Collection including the 1903 Napier Gordon Bennett, 1904 De Dion Bouton, 1928 Austin Seven Tourer and the 1971 Ford Capri. The player has the opportunity to design their own vehicle by mixing up different car parts and then race around the track to set the best lap time.

Donation of the Percy Lambert Plaque 

Andrea Bishop of the National Motor Museum presents the plaque to Allan Winn at Brooklands Museum

A plaque commemorating Percy Lambert’s achievement of being the first man to drive 100 miles in one hour has gone on permanent display at Brooklands Museum, after being donated by the National Motor Museum Trust.

Lambert’s record breaking distance was achieved at Brooklands on the 15th February 1913. Driving in a streamlined Talbot belonging to the Earl of Shrewsbury, Lambert broke the record by driving 103.76 miles within the hour. To commemorate the occasion, a brass plaque was placed on the wall of the Clubhouse where it remained until the track closed. Tragically, the same year, on the 31st October 1913, Lambert was fatally injured trying to improve on his own record and was pronounced dead on arrival at Weybridge Cottage Hospital.

Kids in Museums Takeover Day 2013

Takeover Day, a national initiative run by Kids in Museums, took place in November 2013. The day celebrated the contribution of children and young people to museums, galleries and historic houses.

The National Motor Museum got involved by visiting Year 11 GCSE Business and Communication Systems students at Highcliffe School near Christchurch, Dorset. The museum’s team inspired students about writing in museums and tasked them with creating object captions.

Here you can see a selection of exhibition captions produced by the students. Information was taken from the catalogue records of objects in The Caravan Club Collection, and edited to squeeze into the 40 word limit.

Museums and Galleries Month 2008

We worked in partnership with St Barbe Museum, New Forest Centre, local schools and the New Forest Poetry Society to produce a series of poems in response to each museum's collections. These were displayed within each museum and then an exhibition of all the poets' and students' work was shown at the New Forest Centre in July 2008.

This successful project was a fantastic opportunity for audiences to bring our exhibits to life with their different stories.

Bill Tuttle Race Programmes 1950 -1953 

Little known Isle of Man TT winner, William Tuttle (also known as the ‘Wakefield Wizz’) is thought to have been a talented trials motorcyclist in his early years who later went onto win three TT races and a number of continental 125cc Grand Prix races in the late 1940s to early 1950s.

Trained as a dispatch rider in the Royal Corps of Signals, Tuttle served with distinction in occupied Europe after D-Day. Mentioned in dispatches twice, Sergeant W. Tuttle was demobilised in 1946.

A quietly spoken family man popular with the crowds and fellow competitors alike he managed to escape the attention of the press, making these race programmes believed to be signed by him, even more special.

Mrs Morna Lloyd Vaughan

Entry number 00703 on the National Motor Museum’s object entry form, dated 1 August 2008, records the 6 year loan of the archive of the late Mrs Morna Lloyd Vaughan’s victory in the ladies' section of the 1932 Monte Carlo Rally. Having gathered dust in the storeroom of a solicitor’s office for many years, as the intended beneficiary was sought, it was agreed that this rare collection should become the property of the Museum in 2014.

Mrs Lloyd Vaughan was a noted surgeon who began driving in 1924. She entered several rallies, including seven Monte Carlo Rallies, in 1931, 1932, 1933, 1937, 1939, 1951, and 1952. Her most successful entry was in 1932 when, aged 49, she won the Coupe des Dames, the trophy for the best performance by women drivers. On this occasion she was driving a Triumph Nine Coupe. Her co-driver, Miss Charlotte Nash, was a medical student.

Paris-Madrid Rally 2014 

1903 Napier

Gordon Bennett Race 1903, British team of Edge, Jarrott and Stocks

In May 2014 the National Motor Museum entered the 1903 Napier into the H&H Paris-Madrid Rally. The Museum was competing for the Charles Jarrott Trophy, in honour of the pioneering British driver who led the field in the Paris-Madrid rally of 1903. It was particularly fitting that the Museum's Napier should compete for this Trophy, as this historic machine was actually driven by Jarrott himself in the 1903 Gordon Bennett Race.

1966 AUSTIN A40 FARINA - Aka ‘Tubby' 

‘Tubby’ was first registered on the 18th April 1966.

With just one owner from new, ‘Tubby’ was offered to the National Motor Museum Trust as a bequest in 1990 having been driven a total of 83,000 miles by his owner, Mrs M Jackman of Paignton, Devon.

At this moment in time ‘Tubby’ is in need of some TLC in order to get him running again. In order to achieve this a full service, overhaul of brakes, MOT, new tyres and a re-spray are needed.

1971 FORD CAPRI

This has to be one of the most carefully looked after cars you will ever encounter.

The National Motor Museum Trust was gifted this 1971 Ford Capri in 1994 by Mr B G Cutler of Wimborne.

Having owned the Capri from new, Mr Cutler never used it on Motorways, rarely drove it faster than 40 mph and only ever used it to drive 2 miles each day to visit a relative – and if he ever drove it on salted roads it was always washed immediately afterwards – even at night.

Sadly, time has taken its toll, meaning that the tyres are now badly perished and the vinyl roof has become worn. With your help we can continue the care of this lovely Capri.

Yamaha 195cc

Not on Display - In Reserve Collection

This machine was a relatively early example of the advanced, highly efficient two-strokes produced by Japanese manufacturers. The air-cooled, twin-cylinder engine had valve-controlled porting, forced lubrication and a power output of 22hp @ 7,500rpm. Other advanced features (for a small-capacity machine in the early 1970s) were a five-speed gearbox and electric starter. The model was highly regarded in its time, although later models became even more efficient and elaborate in design and fittings.
