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 fifteenth year we are still going strong thanks to the ongoing support of so many.
