The E-type Club Website
Among the website's many areas, the aspect of which we are most proud is the wealth of information available for our club members. As a member, you can log into our Members' Area using a password provided by the Club. Once inside, you can view technical articles and videos as well as being able to read magazine back issues. You can also access the fantastic Representatives' News and Events section and get to know your local Area Representative.

NEW - Martin Brundle Scrapbook by Martin Brundle & Philip Porter
Considered by many in F1 to be the top motor racing broadcaster in the world, Brundle had 11 years in Grand Prix racing. He was the 1988 World Sportscar Champion with Jaguar and the most successful Jaguar driver ever, winning at Le Mans, Daytona, Spa and Monza, where he finished first and second in the same race!
In F1 he drove for Tyrrell, Zakspeed, Brabham, Williams, Benetton, Ligier, McLaren and Jordan. His team mates included Michael Schumacher and Mika Hakkinen, both of whom he beat on occasion. His first arch rival, though, had been Ayrton Senna and Martin describes in great detail their epic battles for the Formula 3 Championship in ’83, which Senna won by a single point at the very last race.
Contributors include: Murray Walker, David Coulthard, Sir Jackie Stewart, Ross Brawn, Sir Stirling Moss, Jenson Button, Adrian Newey, Mark Webber, Lord March, Johnny Herbert, Derek Warwick, Win Percy, Jonathan Palmer, Barrie ‘Whizzo’ Williams, Rubens Barrichello, Martin Whitmarsh, Mark Blundell, Eddie Jordan, David Croft, Henry Pearman, James Allen and John Coombs.
Chapters on Banger Racing & Hot Rods, Touring Cars & FF, F3 Sportscars, F1, Business and the broadcasting years with ITV, BBC and Sky.

NEW - The Iconic Jaguar XK – A Celebration of 120s, 140s & 150s
"Between these covers, we have tried to present a very varied mix of features based around 120s, 140s and 150s, not forgetting the C-types and D-types which the factory always termed the XK 120C and XK 120D (or occasionally XK 140D). A few of the articles are reprinted from the early issues of the XK Gazette, the XK Club magazine, but are now in colour (not practical 16 years ago), expanded, redesigned and, mainly, updated.
Let’s not be bashful: XKs are great cars. They achieved so much in period, and continue to achieve so much – witness the three XK Adventurers who have written up their amazing exploits here. Could there be a better advertisement for a classic sports car, a better testimonial to their greatness?
I hope very much you will enjoy the many varied features that make up this sheer unadulterated, unambiguous, pure celebration of the XKs that is no mere flirtation but a full-blooded love affair with our stimulating, rewarding and beguiling mistresses!” Philip Porter

We feel the discounts for members are a valuable service which can easily pay for membership and, as time allows, we will gradually expand the scheme. Suggestions are, of course, always welcome. I am afraid this only applies to UK members but the RAC are now offering not just 30% off new membership but a 50% discount. That cannot be bad!
E-types for Hire
John Robinson our Durham and North East Representative has two Series 3 E-types, a white roadster and a dark blue coupe which they hire out through the hotel for their 'Classic Car Breaks'. One of these E-types also took part in the Jaguar heritage trip from Coventry to Geneva last March.
They have also added to the hire fleet for this year a 1976 Carrera 3.0 Targa and a 1981 Mercedes 380SL.
The hire season runs from May to October and they already have bookings and considerable interest. Details and pictures can be found on their website
Focus on the Representatives
Get to know your Area Representative. If you are a member, take the time to visit the Members' Area and have a look at the Representative News & Events page, or even find your Area Representative, click on their name and see if there are currently any Representative-organised events coming up in your area.
Pin Your E-type On The Map
Visit the E-Type UK/E-type Club Forum and pin your E-type on the map. The Forum has been encouraging E-type owners to place a pin where they are in the world with a few details about their cars. Minimal information is required but it's quite fun to see how many E-types there are in your country and area.
