April 13 – UK South Spring Meeting, Denbies
Under a cloudless and azure blue sky, Peter Spackman’s Spring Meeting was a huge success. Fifty five E-types and XKs gathered in a dedicated parking area at Denbies Wine Estate near Dorking in Surrey. Club members mingled amongst the superb-display of cars and had a lovely lunch in the private Garden Room.
Our thanks to Peter Hugo and Chris Window of WinSpeed who brought a super display of cars and did a sterling job lining up the cars and imparting their knowledge base to Club members. They kindly sponsored the event and had created some great trophies from pistons – these prizes for the ‘most interesting cars’ were awarded to Michael Wooding (XK) and Richard Harrison (E-type). Local Jaguar dealership, Harwoods of Crawley, brought a splendid red F-type Coupe which attracted plenty of attention.
Next year’s Spring Meeting will be at The Old Tollgate Hotel in Bramber, West Sussex on April 12.
