Over the weekend of 8th-10th June 2018 XKEC members attended our national GROWLER XV event which this year was held in association with XK70 at Shelsley Walsh in Worcestershire. In total 123 cars were in our club display amongst the thousands of other Jaguars on display. Over 100 members also enjoyed dinners on both Friday and Saturday nights before ending the weekend with a superb drive tour of the Malvern Hills on the Sunday. Thank you to all those who attended.
