RE­AC­TIONS FROM THE MO­TOR­ING WORLD: CLUBS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News Analysis -

THE ROVER P6 Club

BRIAN HUMPHREYS

‘Our trea­surer uses his 2000TC ev­ery­day and com­pletes about 14,000 miles a year. Some peo­ple want to use his­toric ve­hi­cles ev­ery day out of pref­er­ence.’

JAGUAR EN­THU­SI­ASTS’ CLUB

JAMES BLACK­WELL

‘Jaguar is still mak­ing cars, so we con­sider our­selves to be a mar­que club rather than a clas­sic only club. We have own­ers of newer cars like XK8s and they don’t usu­ally deem their cars to be clas­sic, de­spite get­ting some ben­e­fits like clas­sic in­sur­ance. FIVA has to draw the clas­sic line on this im­por­tant is­sue some­where.’

MAR­COS OWN­ERS’ CLUB

ROGER YOUNG

‘The ma­jor­ity of the cars in the club are more than 30 years old. Our mem­bers who own cars younger than this own things like LM600s, which are much more mod­ern in de­sign than the Mar­cos 3.0-litres of the 1970s. Mem­bers who own cars younger than 30 years old would con­sider their cars clas­sic but not nec­es­sar­ily his­toric.

TRI­UMPH SPORTS SIX CLUB

JANE ROW­LEY

‘Most of the cars in our club would be deemed his­toric by FIVA, but my white Tri­umph Spit­fire isn’t his­toric yet. Peo­ple do like their cars to be classed in a cer­tain way. From our point of view, any LEZ re­stric­tions could be the big­gest prob­lems.’
