HOW IT ALL BEGAN

The image above was the original advert and article that was placed in Jaguar World magazine back in July 2003.

 

The idea initially was to just simply get a few XK8/XKR owners together. We wasn't then expecting what followed ! 

 

Now in our sixteenth year we are still going strong thanks to the ongoing support of so many.

One of our largest events so far this year was back on Sunday 5th May 2019 where members gathered together for our annual Show & Shine event which this year took place in association with the Bowood House Spring Classic Car and Bike show in Wiltshire. The weather stayed good and the venue seemed to be well liked by everyone. Many congratulations to all our very own club trophy winners and also to member Brian Thomas who won Bowoods "Pride of Ownership"' award in his highly modified X150 and to member Graham Alexander who won Bowoods "People's Choice, Best of Show" award. A big thank you to everyone who attended. Below are some images taken at the event. You can see a video of the whole event HERE
