Otorohanga Run (October 14, 2018)

Sunday dawned with a 2-degree frost so it was to be an awesome day for a JAG run through the Waikato countryside with a meeting point of The Rhubarb Café in Arapuni Village at 10am. Eleven cars, 20 members and 4 grandies duly arrived with everyone enjoying a catch up...

A Travel Log

Many of you have travelled the world so this may interest you and I am sure you will have your own tales to tell. On one of our first trips to Europe we found ourselves, without any real intention, visiting many renowned sites associated with both the World Wars. We...

My Return to Motor Sport’s Circuits of Competition

Part 6 Where the anecdotes are of a derogatory nature I have chosen to omit the name of the perpetrator. It should be noted I rarely if ever own up to making any mistakes myself! I am uncertain which racing circuit we were bound for in respect of two of my reminisces...

The first XJ6 in Australia now lives in Katikati

The tortuous tale of just how difficult it was to acquire the first XJ6 on Australian roads, and why it is now in Katikati. You've heard it before, I've got (or had) the first 'something' Jaguar that ever came into the country'. Proving that to be a fact is another...

Stirling Moss

When I was a young lad, Stirling Moss was my hero. My interest was first sparked by a book entitled “Stirling Moss’s book of Motor Sport.” There has been so much written about this man I do not presume to cover even a small part of his amazing deeds. In my library...

Coromandel Run – 11/12 August 2018

11th August Saturday dawned a lovely day for the first day of the run to the Coromandel. Instructions were for the local members to meet at the Orchard House Café, north of Katikati, at 9am ready for a 9:30 departure to arrive at our lunch venue at Mercury Bay Club...

Barn Find

I had a ring from a gentleman recently who said he had his late departed Grandfather’s 2001 Jaguar Sovereign in a shed on his property. It has been out of action for many years but he wondered if anyone in our club might be interested in it. Barn finds are of massive...

Fancy a Job With Jaguar? Part 2

Continuing the story of Tegan Foster (part 1 here). Perks of the job: Some of the many benefits of this scheme is that Jaguar Land Rover pay for the qualifications and training – so no student debt! The company encourages you to go on placements around the business;...

XJ50 Celebrates Five Decades of Jaguar

Jaguar is marking 50 years of its flagship XJ luxury saloon- the choice of business leaders, celebrities, politicians and royalty for five decades-with the launch of a new special edition model. Revealed at the Beijing Motor Show, the XJ50 celebrates half a century of...

Waikato Dam Run

June 19, 2018 Del and I left Rotorua on a very wet and dismal morning and headed to the Marist Rugby Club at Oropi to meet our fellow Jag club members. When we arrived, the weather had improved and was quite bright and dry which was great for members to get out of...

My Return to Motor Sport’s Circuits of Competition

Part 5 The ‘Arnolt Bristol Bolide’ introduced me to motor racing in Classic Sports Car events. After I had disposed of the Bolide I determined to continue with the involvement, more especially in the 2-litre class. To that end I purchased at auction a late production...

Jaguar Land Rover Sell 100 Cars

I would think that many members of our club would remember in 2014, when Jaguar Land rover, purchased 543 cars from Dentist Dr. James Hull. This included 130 Jaguar cars. Dr James opened his first practice in 1987. He specialised in Cosmetic Dentistry and in 2014...
