Hello Everyone

I hope you are all keeping well in these frustrating and difficult times. The car show season has now just about finished for this year. Whilst we had splendid weather in the spring and summer this year, the car season was somewhat a wet flop due to Covid-19. We did what we could but, as we all know Covid-19, is back on the rise again. Let's hope 2021 is a better year for us petrol-heads.

Drive-It-Day 2021 is scheduled for Sunday 25th April. Let us hope that we will be able to use the day out to kick off next year's car season.

We have received a regional update email from Graham Searle of the main JEC advising us not to organise any meetings at the moment. We have printed the full contents of the email on page 3 of our newsletter. Whilst Covid-19 remains with us and under such advice from the JEC, we will be postponing our club meets and car events until we are further advised by the main club.

You will remember that Doug Warren entered a photograph of his splendid XK8 convertible to the To The Garage competition on Youtube, to be put in a XK8/R 2021 calendar. Doug is pleased to be able to tell us that his car came 6th and will feature in the 2021 calendar. Doug would like to thank all the members who voted for his car. You can view the cars in the calendar at

Returning to the Yesterday channel on TV is 'Bangers & Cash', with a rather amusing new third season of the Mathewson's family business by the North Yorkshire Moors, which auctions cars and motoring memorabilia. A nice, easy-to-watch show.

Well a nice short message from me this month! Stay safe and keep those Jaguars in top form.
