Second meeting of the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club in Spain

THE turnout at the second meeting of the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club in Spain was excellent with lots of new faces and an eclectic mix of beautiful cars.

Some phenomenal examples of Jaguar engineering were to be seen including an XK120 drophead and an XK140, both in immaculate condition.

Again we had a good selection of the iconic E types, one owner with a fabulous black V12 version drove all the way from Valencia.


Another newcomer brought a super example of a Mark 2 Saloon that he has owned for over 30 years.

Younger cars included, outstanding examples of XJS’s, XK8’s, XKR’s, XJ’s, and Sovereigns to mention just a few. To start the proceedings I had organised two competitions, best engine and a precision driving competition.

It was impossible to choose between each entrant for the best engine so all entrants were presented with a winners certificate. The precision driving competition basically involved a timed course transporting a container of water on the bonnet of the car, around a fairly simple course with out spilling the water.


Again we awarded all entrants a winner’s certificate, but members note it will not be so easy next time.
