XK70 Jaguar Festival June 2018

Two-day festival at Shelsley Walsh Hillclimb, Worcs

  • Hillclimb competition and a chance to drive the hill
  • Historic car displays, specialists, music, competitions

Such a lot to look forward to for what will be the biggest Jaguar Festival next year. All XK-engined cars will be very welcome – including E-types, of course! Plans are well advanced and you will see regular updates in each The E-type magazine during the coming year. The Weekend at the home of the Midlands Automobile Club will have a period feel and will be buzzing with all things Jaguar.


Jaguar News July 2017

Jaguar Classic launched JLR Classic Works in Coventry on June 14, 64 years to the day since the C-type’s first Le Mans win and 60 years since Jaguar’s exceptionally dominant 1-2-3-4-6 D-type result at Le Mans 1957. JLR Classic Works is building the £1m+Continuation XKSSs as well as rebuilding all models to order, and building the £285,000 Reborn E-types.

The 14,000m2 facility at Ryton-on-Dunsmore brings all sales, servicing and restoration operations under one roof and will be complemented later this summer with a new facility at Essen, Germany. With a dedicated showroom and 54 workshop bays, it is said to be the largest facility of its type in the world. It is also home to the 500-strong JLR Classic vehicle Collection (doublestacked) and provides work for more than 80 specialist staff, expected to grow beyond 120 by the end of the year.

Three-hour tours (£49 each) will be offered from September.  At the end of August a parade of five D-types will convoy from Classic Works to the Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court, stopping en route at the home of Panasonic Jaguar Racing at Silverstone.

 


E-type Club Members’ Photos

Bernd May - photoahrt_130518_SCC_1179_DS_M (max. 1600px)_382902We are always on the lookout for member photos e-types in various situations for the magazine and website.  In the May edition of the E-type magazine Abigail put a request out to club members for magazine cover photos.  We were looking for a ‘different shot’ and as a result we had many images sent to us and all of them were wonderful.  Some of the images will go on the cover, some will be used elsewhere in the magazines and others for marketing material over time.

Please click here to view the member photos that we were sent.
