JCCV Concours and Display Day celebrates the D-Type

This year the Jaguar Car Club of Victoria’s annual Concours and Display Day, on Sunday, November 19, marks the stunning wins by Jaguar D-Types at the 1957 Grand Prix Endurance Le Mans 24 Hours. It has been 60 years since the unheralded D-Types took out first, second, third and fourth and sixth places in the Le Man 24 Hours.

Although Jaguar had pulled out of factory racing that year, it supported Ecurie Ecosse, a small Edinburgh team, who took out first and second places with 3.8-litre D-Types. Independent drivers of D-Types took the other placings.

Australia no longer has any original D-Types, the last one left for England about a year ago, however several JCCV members own and race D-Type Rs or replicas.

D-Type Rs will be on view at the display venue, Wesley College, Glen Waverley campus, High Street Rd, Glen Waverley.

The event will have Jaguars from the marque’s early beginnings – an Austin Swallow to the latest – the hugely popular F-Pace. Other models to be represented will be the pre-war SS, Mk 1 and Mk 2, the large touring Mk 1V to Mk X saloons, S-Type, 420G, XK, E-Type, XJ, to the moderns – XF, XJ, XK and F-Type.

The range of Jaguar’s innovative designs and ground-breaking engineering over almost 90 years will again be demonstrated at this year’s event.

Cars entered in the Concours d’Elegance and the Concours d’Etat will be grouped together in the centre of the oval. These beautiful examples of the marque will be judged for originality in the d’Elegance category and pride of ownership for the d’Etat section.

The display day will run from 10 am to 3 pm and is open to the public. Entry into the Wesley grounds is $10 a car. However, be aware that parking is now limited due to the school’s expansion. Only Jaguars will be permitted to park on the oval.

Food and drink will be available plus selected trader and sponsor stalls, and the JCCV merchandise tent.
