Report: Jaguars on the Barbican

Staged along Plymouth’s waterfront, in the area known as The Barbican, beneath Plymouth Hoe, this historic and well preserved area of Plymouth features cobbled streets and quaint buildings. It was the ideal venue for a gathering of 80 classic and modern Jaguars

This was a Plymouth Waterfront Partnership and Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club (JEC) joint initiative, having been started by Ian Lock of JEC Devon Region last year. It is to his credit for the thought of the idea of having Jaguars on the Barbican. New Jaguars were represented by Plymouth’s recently established dealership, and classics were supported by their enthusiastic owners.

Car of the Day, a magnificent Mk2 3.4-litre in Carmen Red, owned by Mike Nicholls from Weymouth, it was chosen by Sarah O’Leary from the Plymouth Waterfront Partnership. All enquiries for next year's event should go to Graham Searle, General Manager for the JEC, email
