A new permanent display of Guild memorabilia has opened at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu.

The display tells the story of the Guild from its inception in 1944 as the Motoring Correspondents' Circle. A series of story boards detail the Guild's annual awards, its training for journalists and its links with Beaulieu.

At the heart of the exhibition is a new display unit showcasing some of the Guild’s trophies and memorabilia including racing helmets worn by Sir Jackie Stewart and Graham Hill, a bronze prancing horse presented to the first British F1 champion Mike Hawthorn by Enzo Ferrari, a piston from John Cobb’s record breaking Napier Railton and the original 1,000 Mile Trial cup.
