    Jaguar Enthusiasts Club

    About Our Club:

    The Jaguar Enthusiasts Club was formed in December of 1984 following the need for a Jaguar orientated club specifically geared to the enthusiast who not only used, but maintained or restored their motor car. Our aim is to assist such enthusiasts, in a friendly and informal manner, keep their Jaguars on the road with the minimum of cost.

    The JEC operates in over 72 national and international regions. These regions run a series of local & national events including regular 'noggin and natter' evenings at local hostelries, video and talk shows visits to local specialists and monthly comprehensive newsletters on regional activities.

    The monthly magazine Jaguar Enthusiast contains everything from full month on month restorations to social events, from small scale model news to new car model news. Nigel Thorley, editor of Jaguar Enthusiast, was awarded 'Best Editor of the Year' in 1997 by Classic Car magazine. The Magazine has won the prestigious 'Club Magazine of the Year' award, presented by Classic Car magazine, a total of three times and the JEC has been voted 'Club of the Year' by the same organisation.

    The JEC is very proud of its relationship with the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, the historic arm of Jaguar Cars Ltd, working very closely to further appreciation of the marque. We refurbished the Series 1 XJ6 which belonged to Sir William Lyons, founder of Jaguar, for the Trust along with the original Series 3 E Type press car. We have just finished restoring a unique Series 2 XJ which was the Chairmans main transport and was used as a development car. Our current project is even more unique being the concept Daimler Corsica, which has never had an engine!. We are making it fit for the road.

    Over the years, we have worked closely with the late Jaguar Car Club to organise the largest one make Spares Day in the world. In March and October of each year over 120 stallholders and over 2000 enthusiasts descend on the National Agriculture Centre at Stoneleigh in Warwickshire to find that elusive part, or just to browse and talk about things Jaguar.

    Not only is the technical side well catered for but the social side is an important element, with two International rallies each year, one in the North at Harewood House near Leeds in July and one in the South every August. A recent development has been combining these with a full social weekend courtesy of the Warner Breaks Group.

    Also many local regions hold their own rallies during the summer and the club has also organised and been involved in many overseas trips.
