The Jaguar XK Club celebrated 70 years of the XK engine with the XK70 Jaguar Festival

'Congratulations to you and the team on staging such a lovely event. It really was an extremely pleasant weekend and all of our team and customers thoroughly enjoyed it.

 

'It had an intimate garden party feel, despite thousands of people being there, and I didn't see a single person without a smile on their face (OK, perhaps with the exception of Chris Ward!)'

 

Paul.B , Eagle E-types

'Fabulous achievement at the weekend, you have my total admiration for what you achieved and everybody I spoke to (trade and public) remarked on what a fantastic event it was. Thanks and WELL DONE!!'

'I admired the "festival" and the work which has gone into it. It was a very successful event ( as always ) and for that a big Thank You.'

 

Joseph. G (XK Club)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

'I spoke to David, our volunteer, and he said it was an absolute success! Thank you so much for the opportunity, a lot of awareness was raised!

 

Thank you for all of your help!'

'I just wanted to congratulate you and your team on the huge success that was XK70 - absolutely perfect organisation, a great turn-out, plenty to see and an excellent platform for both Trade & Members/Public alike to meet, chat, learn and network.

 

I honestly believe that - provided it was a profitable event for the club - it is something (at whatever venue) that could/should be repeated more frequently than once a decade!

 

Well done!'

'I just wanted to say a big thank you for the weekend. What a brilliant event it was and so very organised down to the smallest detail.'

To the team:

 

'Hooligans up the hill,

More spare parts and services than you can shake a stick at,

All the experts gathered together under a sun-baked Shelsley,

All the punters smiling and having fun.”

 

Please don’t keep us waiting another 10 years…………….!

XK75 here we come?

 

Well done on a simply brilliant event.'

It was lovely to meet you and the team, and in such fantastic surroundings, wow.

I hope the weekend was a success on all fronts, and the band was as required.

Many thanks for all the effort over a very long time.'

'Wow! If Sunday was anything like Saturday you all must surely still be asleep under a tree somewhere on the hill at Shelsley?!

 

We're still recovering from Saturday, and we didn't even manage the evening bash.

 

What an event- a huge thanks to you all for all your efforts.  In my mind, and confirmed by my parents, it surpassed Revival in terms of friendliness, suitability for kids, openness of people and freedom within the paddock etc. etc. It has to go down as one of my best ever days on this fine planet. Isla, our 4 yr old confirmed the same "Daddy, of all my days, this is my best one" (although she was eating an ice-cream with double flake and extra sprinkles at the time, which always skews results somewhat!)

 

Thank-you so much for all your hard work. I felt hugely privileged to be a part of the day, and the club, and everywhere I looked- from borrowing Julian's F-Type to race up the hill, to the courtyard presentation by Al and Edd, through to me having a big hug with Chris Ward at the end of Sat, after his off, and then my ride in XKD with Willie, and then Tania somehow getting my father in another D at the last minute, and not forgetting Jennifer and Robin Lawrie (we're checking if he's a relative!) signing the XK book for my kids. It was all bucket-list stuff.  Thanks for making it all possible.

 

Here's to XK75? Too soon?!'

'I write in appreciation of the wonderful event you organised, beginning for me with the Drivers School on Thursday then Saturday for the Festival.

 

As I have already mentioned to you both, with my modest experience of five automobile Club memberships spanning almost fifty years, what you achieved was quite remarkable - not just something well-organised but, most importantly, done with a 'light touch' that ensured officialdom never got in the way of the Club's esprit de corps (this being my first XK Club event).

 

Sadly this important balance has been lost by many Clubs, and I only realised why when I read Philip's prophetic words in the Festival Catalogue - "No committees, no concours, no politics", all three of which have contaminated the efforts of so others.

 

Be assured I know that the event I experienced resulted from the efforts of many within the XK Club team, so please pass on my my thanks and appreciation to them also.'

'I am sure you are exhausted but you should be very proud of the wonderful weekend you provided for us all.  Thanks so much.  The weather was spectacular and it was a beautiful venue.  You look great as usual and I hope we can see you in Scotland in September.

 

I took some photos on Friday evening of Laurent Schneider and his wife with their car in front of Chateau Impney.  I am not a photographer but I did like the photos.  I told Laurent that I would send them to you folks.  The weekend was really amazing and worth the trip.  It is Monday 2:30PM and I am already back at work!'

'A great thank you to all of you for a fabulous event. I attended Sunday principally to gather info for my e type rebuild and was not disappointed. It was very civilised, friendly and much better than Goodwood!'

 

Nick. S

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

'Well done everyone-it was, we think, the best one you have done...ever. For its scope, diversity, and imagination, it would be hard to beat. All our crowd at Dinham loved it. Even some of the wives who were there somewhat ‘under sufferance’ initially were glowing in their praise yesterday morning!

 

Well done all the team-a huge amount of effort paid off.'

 

Paul & Fiona. A (XK and E-type)

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

'Please pass on my compliments to Philip and the whole Porter Press Team for an outstanding event this last week end.

 

I was only able to attend on Saturday but was well satisfied by my time of departure.

 

.....and the added bonus of being apprehended by a former owner of my XK140 from the 1980’s helped fill in a gap in its history.'

 

K. P    (XK Club)

 

'I hope everyone from the team has recovered from the weekend at Shelsley.

 

It really was a fantastic weekend. Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved.'

'I just wanted to follow up from the weekend’s XK70 Festival and pass on my congratulations to you and your team for having created such a great event. With the mixture of classic cars on and off circuit, the courtyard music and the aircraft fly-over it really did feel like a mini Goodwood Revival.'

 

Chris. C, Moss Europe (XK70 sponsor)

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

'What a fantastic weekend. Please do convey my most sincere congratulations to Philip & Julie for such a wonderful event.  Everything from the visit to Gaydon on Friday, the two days  of Hill Climbs and the excellent 1948 Ball were superb.  I know the weather helped ! but even so it was a truly magnificent  celebration, long to be remembered. '

'Well done to you and everybody for putting on a BIG and successful event that, I hope, had all the imagery and ambience that you were hoping for. From our side it was a pleasure and with you centring our enquiries the communication worked well. We are now knee deep in another weekend of activity so have had little chance to sit back and evaluate other than the positive comments that have been made since the weekend. So well done all of you and you are welcome at SW any time.'

XK70 Jaguar Festival “better than Goodwood Revival”

 

So said several attendees who joined us last weekend for our Jaguar X(K)travaganza.

 

Admittedly with Shelsley Walsh packed with a wonderful display of classic XKs, E-types and other flavours of XK-engined Jaguars, and an equally wonderful collection of owners and enthusiasts, opinion may have been a tad biased…

 

What a fantastic weekend! The cars, the hillclimb excitement and commentary, the motoring personalities, the cars, the weather, the talks and interviews, the exhibitors, the cars, the fashion show, the shopping opportunities, the beauty parlour, the cars, the music and dance displays, the flypasts and the funfair. Oh, and the cars.

 

And all this in one of the most special and original motorsport venues in the world.

 

But most importantly – what a phenomenal crowd! We’d like to extend our most heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended. Your good humour and enthusiasm simply made the Festival.

 

XK80 anyone?
