February 2018 News Round Up

Jaguar C-X75 and Letitia Mace

Welcome to the latest Xclusively Jaguar News Round Up!

This month’s cover picture features the Jaguar C-X75 – a neat fit for some drivers, as Letitia Mace was pleased to demonstrate at the NEC in November 2017, with the permission of Neil Campbell (Collections Manager, Jaguar Heritage) ……… but not so easy for others, as demonstrated by Jaguar Drivers Club Director, Michael Byng, much to the amusement of onlooker, Rob Jenner !!

TWR Le Mans bronze medallion “1990 TWR Le Mans bronze medallion”

I just saw an article [Le Mans Automobilia] about the bronze medallion given to the TWR crew members after the 1st and 2nd finishes and would like to find one to replace the one stolen from me. I was the outside rear tire changer and air jack crewman on the winning car. Please help if you can. I will pay all I have. Please email zelesnik@sbcglobal.net

Thank you, Larry Zelesnik

Georg Dönni and Balthasar BessenichGeorg’s Mark 1

I had a lovely email the other day from Georg Dönni’s good friend, Balthasar Bessenich, which read:

‘Dear Letitia,

Georg just reminded me that my 3.4 [Mark 1] has a “birthday” one day after his son Robin, to whom my wife and I are Godmother and Godfather, and that I bought the car one day after Georg’s birthday. So it’s no wonder that we met up on a Thursday morning in snow drift on the A1, isn’t it?

Hello Letitia,

Thank you for coming along to our August show with Rob, we are delighted to have you with us.

Also thank you for the offer of a write up in your magazine, we’ll get that to you as soon as possible.

Many Thanks

Gordon and Simon

Doncaster and District Region of the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club


Letitia & Rob, thanks so much for your support last Saturday.

I know I can always rely on you to support racing on behalf of the JEC and, in the absence of Peter [Purdom], it was most important for the main club to be represented.

To cap it all, the drivers commented that you were both great fun, and very impressive on the dance floor.😊

Again many thanks

Kind Regards

Terry Dye

Competitions Secretary

Apology for error: In the January 2018 issue of XJ News we published EDT Automotive: Our Experience in which we stated that the cleaning oil was vegetable based. We have now been informed that it is a light mineral oil.

EDT explained:

“We used a soya based oil for the first 2 years. We subsequently upgraded our fluid to a bespoke light mineral oil which we have been using ever since.

Unfortunately, some of our partners were so used to saying Soya based its stayed with them !!”
