"More than just a club"

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

JOINING / RENEWING

Joining our club is quick and easy and costs just £40.00 for a 12 months membership. This entitles members to various BENEFITS including parts discounts, insurance discounts etc. 

 

You can pay by various payment methods and all we then need from you is a completed application form in order for us to make communication. So why not JOIN / RENEW now !

MEMBERS-ONLY FORUM

Our exclusive member-only chat forum was created way back in 2004 and now contains a wealth of XK information and knowledge. The forum is a great way of seeking answers to any problems you may have or simply speaking to other members and making new friendships who share your same passion.

There are now well over 325,000 messages posted on the forum, with some 35,000 topics being discussed so register now.

EVENT IMAGES

We attend many club events each year across the whole of the UK for members and their families to enjoy. These occur both regionally and nationally.

We do anything from regional breakfast meets, evening meets, lunches, dinner dances, car shows, picnics, regional Christmas dinners, visits to country houses and gardens, motor museums and even UK and overseas tours to name but a few.

Our social side of the club is, we believe, our clubs biggest asset so come and join in all the fun !
