More than 250 peo­ple at­tended the Clas­sic & Sportscar Cen­tre’s din­ner at the Na­tional Rail­way Mu­seum, York. They in­cluded for­mer Lib­eral Demo­crat leader Lord Steele, who has bought a Jaguar and sold sev­eral cars through the cen­tre. Also present was for­mer Eng­land rugby team cap­tain and head coach Martin John­son.
