It gives me great pleasure this year in awarding our 2022-23 CLUBMAN OF THE YEAR AWARD to our Essex Regional Officer Doug Warren.
What he has created over the past year has been quite incredible for his local members and many of them have regularly commented to me how grateful they are for all the work that he does.
As Chairman of the club I can’t thank Doug enough for the hard work and effort he has put in, not just arranging a variety of regular events, monthly meets, club tours etc but also for keeping members aware of local happenings through the members forum and his very informative e-newsletters. I know myself how much work this takes and awarding this trophy to him is just a small way of passing on mine and his local members thanks.
All I can say is a very big thank you for all your support Doug,
I hope all our members will join in and congratulate Doug on this achievement as it is very well deserved.
Our exclusive member-only forum was created back in 2004 and now contains a wealth of XK information, knowledge and expertise. 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 348,000 messages posted on the forum, with some 37,700 topics being discussed so why not register now.
You will find here the complete history of all the XKs produced over the years. This includes all the standard models as well as all the Limited/Special Editions that were produced. If you want to find out more information about a particular model then this is the first place to look.
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, twenty years later we are still going strong thanks to the ongoing support of so many.
