Classic Messerschmitts Gathering Confirmed for Beaulieu

Ken Piper competing in his Messerschmitt

On Saturday 1st August Beaulieu will play host to the largest ever UK gathering of three and four wheel Messerschmitts for many years.

The Event is a tribute to Ken Piper, Club President of the Messerschmitt Owners Club (MOC), since it’s been 21 years since he and the club visited Beaulieu to gathering in numbers.

Ken Piper, now in his late eighties, has been a very successful works driver, winning many races, rallies and trials with Messerschmitts (and other cars) during his long career.

Over 50 Messerschmitts from the UK, Holland and Germany, will be arriving in convoy at 10.15am to assemble in the grounds of the National Motor Museum, including some very rare and valuable examples.

1961 Messerschmitt KR 200

Many of the 17 Tigers that were originally sold in the UK will be attending and with TGs (four wheels) at circa £100k+ and KRs (three wheels) at circa £25-30k, there will be over £2.5 million or more of micros on display!

Beaulieu’s visitors will have a unique opportunity to talk to current owners and get close to these very unusual cars.
