JEC National Day at Warwick Castle, September 2014

What a day it turned out to be!

The car parking area allocated was so full they had to put late comers in the public car park and beyond. The weather was brilliant and everyone enjoyed the day. Various members of JEC Essex Thameside attended and took advantage of a long weekend hotel deal nearby.

This year, it appeared more newer cars were present, XK’s XJ’s, F Types, and loads of XF’s. But some interesting examples were seen, such as this XK RS as shown on the right.

We also had a much changed MkII with extended wheel arches and ‘bolt-on’ wire wheels, as shown below. Not sure about this one though.

One of the nicer older cars was this wonderful looking Mk I as shown on the right.

 

Check out this XJ X300 below. How did I know it was an XJ X300 model? Check out the registration number. Worth more than the car? It really stood out!

Certainly worth considering again for next year as the cost would normally be over £23 but as it was a club event it was just £12 per car. Plus you had the events at the castle and tours. A fantastic day out.
