Welcome to the latest Xclusively Jaguar News Round Up!

This month’s cover a picture, taken by Paul Skilleter at Dunkeld in 2016, features Jim Randle driving my 3.6 XJ40, known affectionately as Opium

As Xclusively Jaguar enters its 11th year, we sadly say farewell to another of our patrons, the second in 2 months, Jim Randle having passed away within a month of the passing of Norman Dewis.

Jim Randle: A Personal View is my tribute to the man who gave us the XJ40 and XJ220.





Obituary: Gordon Jackson

It is with great sadness, that I also have to inform you that another friend and Jaguar enthusiast, Gordon Jackson, passed away on the afternoon of Sunday 14th July 2019.

Gordon was one of the founding members of the Doncaster JEC Region. A larger than life, if at times strong willed character, Gordon will be sorely missed by all.

We offer our sincere condolences to Gordon’s wife, Gisela.

New Jaguar Heritage Trophy for JDC National Day


Jaguar Drivers Club logo

Tony Merrygold, Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, Collections Manager will be presenting the JDHT’s new Trust Trophy at Wroxall on Sunday for the Compact Saloon of his choice.

This is not a concours but an award for the compact saloon that most catches Tony’s eye, so if you have one – particularly a Mk 2 in this 60th anniversary year – bring it to Wroxall Abbey in Warwickshire (CV35 7NB) on Sunday 4 August and you could be going home with the very first JDHT Trust Trophy presented at a JDC event.
