Our event at Weston Park on 24th June was a great success, even the weather was kind, with only a couple of short showers.
But dont take our word for it see the comments below, from our members.
The combination of our normal Jaguar rally, with the XJ220 and other anniversary celebrations, some amazing bicycle stunt work and the glorious Hurricane flypast added up to a memorable day.
We have set up a gallery of the best bits so send your photos to email@example.com and we will award a prize to the best ones.

The following unedited comments have been made in less than 24 hours of my arrival home. I will let our members and visitors speak for themselves via the BB, FB, and email:
It was a perfect day, great to put so many faces to names and really get close to so many superb machines. Well done JEC!
Good to see the 220s, the Ecurie Ecosse transporter again and the broad range of vehicles that these days occasion.
The helicopter pilot did remark to me that it was unusual for him to attend an event where his steed wasn't the most expensive vehicle there, as he valued the helicopter at only £1.4m!!
let's be honest, the most evocative V12 sound on the day was not Brian's or Richard's XJS at ground level, but the Hurricane going over at 500 feet! Still makes the hairs rise on the back of my neck!
Well been there done that, and what a great day out it was. The weather was on our side and going off the last two weeks I dont think we did bad at all.
Its nice to be around beautiful cars and good people.
Well I'd call that a successful weekend
The first time I`ve seen the Hurricane on its own. Normally it is upstaged by the Lancaster and a Spitfire. Unusual to see it set against such a stormy sky. Quite atmospheric. The members reaction at the end of the short display was electric, with much cheering and clapping.
I'd like to thank everyone involved with Weston Park today ,
I had a wonderful time despite the weather , it was great to meet up and chat with old friends and also to meet some new one's , it was also a pleasure and privilege to have my car on the forum stand ,
What a great club we have. Never had so many friends
Can I thank those of you who attended the recent JEC International Day at Weston Park. Despite the weather everyone seemed to have a good day looking forward to next year already
A GREAT day out, the few showers did not put the crowds off, from our point of view, Highlights for me, lots, but in no real order, Hurricane flypast was top, then a drive in Simon Fox's XKRS, and David Bryant our after dinner speaker
Just a few words ot thanks to everyone who obviously put in a mammoth amount of effort to ensure yesterday's success. A big thank you to all the team for a job "WELL" done.
the day went very quickly in good company. To all of you, many thanks.
Congratulations from our region on the organisation of the event! The day (sunday) was well organised and marshalled with plenty of space for our region.
It was a wonderful day with many interesting cars and nice people.
Great weekend, really enjoyed it.
A great day, many thanks to all involved in setting it up! We loved the fish and chip van! some great Jaguars too!
Great day, shame about the weather, reckon on 700 cars there today, could of been more without the rain. Great to see 7 XJ220's and the original V12 motor show XJ220. Ecurie Ecosse transporter was a must to see, and Norman Dewis of course.
Had a good day out at j e c event Weston Park congrats on a very well organised event
