SIM­PLY JAGUAR

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Event News -

BEAULIEU, HAMP­SHIRE, 8 MAY

A low-drag E-type racer and a gor­geous 3.5-litre MkV were among the vis­i­tor favourites at the Na­tional Motor Mu­seum’s new one-day Jaguar rally.

Both glo­ri­ous clas­sics were cho­sen by as run­ners-up in the Pub­lic Choice awards at the in­au­gu­ral Sim­ply Jaguar event that fol­lowed sim­i­lar events for Porsche, Ford and As­ton Martin own­ers. The win­ning vote went to Steve Var­den’s low­ered Jaguar XKR-S.

The 319 cars on show in­cluded dis­plays from the Dorset, West Sus­sex and Isle of Wight branches of the Jaguar En­thu­si­asts’ Club, with many of them tak­ing part in a cav­al­cade through Beaulieu’s grounds.

Pub­lic re­la­tions man­ager Jane Rid­di­ford says: ‘It was an­other re­sound­ing suc­cess for the Sim­ply fran­chise. To­gether with glo­ri­ous sun­shine, vis­i­tors were treated to a Jaguar dis­play to be trea­sured.’ Mal­colm Wat­son’s 1963 Jaguar E-type low-drag coupé was a big hit with Sim­ply vis­i­tors, com­ing sec­ond in a pub­lic vote.
