HOW IT ALL BEGAN

The image above shows one of our very first events back in 2003 at the old Jaguar Brown's Lane factory in Coventry. We then placed an article in Jaguar World magazine seeking out XK owners or enthusiasts who simply wanted to get together. We wasn't then expecting what followed!

 

Now, seventeen years later we are still going strong thanks to the ongoing support of so many.
