Our Membership Secretary Peter Clark is also the past Chairman of the Jaguar
Enthusiasts Club, Surrey Region, who meet at the Brooklands Motor
Museum. Just like last year the JEC Regional Committee invited the SVVS
to join them at their Thursday July meeting to
display their cars along with JEC Jaguars. This year we were not able to visit the museum
and we parked in the famous enclosure and the adjacent Motor Village. After kicking a few
tyres, both sets of Members retired to the splendid
Brooklands clubhouse 'Members Bar' and balcony with the fantastic view
of the area.
Our Hon Secretary Malcolm Bailey forgot his camera so we are grateful to
our Member Turgay Ali for letting us use his photos. Malcolm noted the following
SVVS Members and cars present: Peter Clark and Mary (in modern
Nissan) and namesake Peter Clarke, probably in a Jag. Both Peters are
also JEC members. Also there was Togs Ali (MGB roadster) and friend Rik
(who took a membership form!). Chris Geary was there with his Healy
Silverstone. Fraser Clayron and Linda came in their pristine 1966 Series
II Land Rover. Also there was Hon Sec Malcolm Bailey in his Opel Manta.
Needless to say, there were also some rather nice Jags, particularly an
early XK120 coupe and some early E-Types. Regrettably, the
anticipated conducted tour of the Motoring Village did not happen.
