Events 2016

3rd December 2016

Winter has not dampened the spirits of Breakfast Club members with a healthy turn-out of 33 Jaguars at our December meet. Jaguar Heritage were equally enthusiastic to support the day, revealing two F-TYPEs that have recently come into their possession.

The Breakfast Club may be in a more informal ‘winter mode’ but autumn sunshine brought a good display of Jaguars to Gaydon for our November meet. This month also saw a particularly large contingent of F-TYPEs making for an impressive spectacle on the grass fringing the main Museum building.

1st October 2016

The 20th anniversary of the XK8 was the focus of our busiest breakfast meet to date. With over 300 Jaguars on display, including an astounding 238 XKs, this was the largest ever known assembly of the model in a public place.
In the museum, a packed lecture theatre saw a brief welcome from Simon Carr of the British Motor Museum, followed by a short introduction to the role and vehicle collection of the Jaguar Heritage Trust, delivered by Jonathan Partridge, manager of the collection. Following this, our guest speaker Peter Leake commenced his presentation ‘The Cat is Back- the story of the XK8’. Peter was Jaguar Dealer Training Manager at the launch of the model and gave an enthusiastic, informative and entertaining illustrated lecture.
During the afternoon, in the Collection Centre, Jaguar Heritage volunteers continued the theme with short talks about the vehicles on display. Outside the building, the X100 was represented by both an early example and the very last XK8 off the production line.
Our grateful thanks go to everyone who contributed to the resounding success of this event.
A video of the day was made by Breakfast Club regular John Bowen and if you attended this event your car might just be on film!

3rd September 2016

Our sixth Jaguar breakfast meet gathered together many regular attendees with a welcome number of new faces, who of course brought along their cherished Jaguars and Daimlers for us all to admire. Jaguar Heritage kindly displayed a stunning selection of ‘Compact Jaguars’ outside the Collection Centre. The remarkably diverse assembly from the 1950s and 60s comprised of 3.4, S-type and 420 saloons. As ever, our grateful thanks go to JDHT for their support.

This month’s Jaguar ‘Breakfest’ held an impressive 125 Jaguars on display including a wide range of models from the 1950s to the present day. The event was blessed with superb weather and outstanding support from Jaguar Heritage who brought out several magnificent cars from their collection to add to the spectacle. Jonathan Partridge, Vehicle Manager for Jaguar Heritage, gave an enlightening talk on Concept Cars within the collection.

2nd July 2016

July saw another fantastic turn-out with many Jaguar owners attending for the first time. Word of our breakfast meet is clearly spreading!  Impeccable timing for this month coincided with the re-opening of the Collections Centre after improvement work to the flooring, allowing JDHT to add several more cars from their venerable collection to the public display. Our background theme for this month was a celebration of 30 years of the XJ40, born at a pivotal moment in Jaguar’s history during its privatisation years in the 1980.

4th June 2016

June brought an E-type theme to our breakfast meet with superb examples owned by Jaguar Heritage brought out from the Collections Centre to be supplemented by those of our own members, providing an unforgettable spectacle.
Dry weather saw the Breakfast Club parked on the grass outside the British Motor Museum with an almost equally matched display of classics and modern cars, a great testament to the diversity and enthusiasm of all Jaguar owners.

7th May 2016

Glorious weather and a glorious display of one hundred Jaguars at our May event, the sunshine attracting several more ‘classics’ than last month, including an XK120 and numerous beautiful E-types.  Jaguar Heritage provided generous input as always and this month focussed on the XJ Series with four venerable cars joining us outside the Collections Centre; from William Lyons’ own 1968 Series 1 XJ6, the last Series 2 XJ12 and Series 3 Sovereign to the final traditional X350 model.
A huge thank you to Sturgess Jaguar of Leicester who provided us with a brand new F-PACE 3.0D, probably the most desirable of the current range, which drew much interest from our members.
Jaguar Breakfast Club members also received free tea/coffee courtesy of JLR and a colour programme of events kindly produced by the British Motor Museum.
