Jubilee Celebration of the SS90 and the Mark 1

In 2015 Georg Donni of Donni Classic Cars in Switzerland plans to hold a Jubilee Celebration of 80 years of the SS90 (Lyons first Sports Car) and 60 years of the Mark 1 (Lyons first unitary construction).

Georg says that despite the fact that both these models have been eclipsed by their successors, we should celebrate these milestones!

Event: Jubilee Celebration of the SS90 and the Mark 1

Date: 16th July to 19th July 2015

Venue: The Champagne/Picardie Region of France

At the moment plans are to meet up on Friday, tour the Champagne region on Saturday, culminating in a grand farewell in the grounds of the old Cirquit de Gueux (Rheims).

Participating cars will be the SS90 Prototype, the first ever road registered production SS90, and the only car delivered to Jersey.

It is hoped that half the original production will attend, as Rheims is well situated and most of the surviving SS90’s are known to be within a days drive of this venue!

Being Jaguars’ first Sports Saloon, it is anticipated that Mark 1’s will easily reach this destination from all over Europe, as they will eat up the miles in a day!
