A well-supported Concours ends a successful JCCV year

 If there is one thing our club seems to do well is to turn on a great Concours and Display Day. The November event had everything going for it – the weather, the range of Jaguars, high attendance by members and visitors, and a friendly relaxed atmosphere.

In some way the event should be called the Family Robinson Affair as Tony Robinson and his XK 150 took out three Concours d’Elegance trophies, the overall winner, pride of ownership for cleanest car and best sports car. However it was Tony’s arrival at the Wesley oval that was a memorable show as Tony, his son Craig and grandson Zac arrived in convoy in three magnificently-presented Jaguars – the 1958 XK 150, a 1961 Mk 2 and a 1969 E-Type all in eye-catching Signal red. Son-in-law Michael was also part of the show in white XJ6 Series 1.

Popular Geelong Register Secretary Steve Temple was the overall winner in the Concours d’Etat section with his immaculate XF which is also his daily driver. Steve bought the car about six months ago and says he spent a solid two weeks getting it ready for the Concours.

A total of 15 cars were entered in the d’Elegance field and 10 in the d’Etat section. In a departure from previous years all cars were judged at the clubrooms on the day before the Concours so judges and owners could enjoy the day in a more relaxed manner. This was an initiative by Concours Director Alan McKinnon.
