    It's Monday and time for some Jaguar goodness to get us through the day
    Peter Simpson has set this weeks quiz on the incredible XK120. How well do you know this incredible model?

    The XK120 was a sports car built in 1948 to showcase the XK engine, never intended for full-scale production and therefore built in aluminium. How many aluminium cars were built before demand led to full scale production in steel?
    A. 140 B. 240 C. 340

    Weber Carburettors were first fitted to the Le Mans XK120C (C-type) in 1953. Which was their country of origin?
    A. Italy B. USA C. UK

    Which was the best-selling XK120 model?
    A. OTS (open two-seater) B. FHC (fixed-head coupé) C. DHC (drop-head coupé)

    Ok everyone - There is quite a bit going on currently and I have a couple of announcements for everyone...

    Ionut Shupy has joined our event team - please join me in making him feel Welcome to our event. He is working on our event website, and the changes are already starting.. if you haven't looked recently you may be in for a surprise when you visit it.. we have the start of a new look, and he will be adding more content regarding JLR and the bigger picture about our favourite marque too.

    NextBase have literally just confirmed that they are signing up with us, meaning that there may well be a dash cam up for grabs in the Prize Draw on the day, and I am hoping to be able to arrange a discount code for attendees too based on these early discussions with them. A massive Thankyou to Nextbase for their support of our 2020 event.

    I am not around on Friday so watch out for the Friday Stats and trivia quiz answers on Thursday this week..

    Ok everyone - here are the answers you are looking for this week - noting that I only got one right myself - so massive congratulations to everyone who got more than me

    The XK120 was a sports car built in 1948 to showcase the XK engine, never intended for full-scale production and therefore built in aluminium. How many aluminium cars were built before demand led to full scale production in steel?
    B 240
    Did you know that originally Jaguar assumed they would just make “a couple of hundred” XK120s in total. In fact 12,061 were built during its production from 1949 to 1954!

    Weber Carburettors were first fitted to the Le Mans XK120C (C-type) in 1953. Which was their country of origin?
    A. Italy
    Did you know they were produced by Edoardo Weber, the C-type used three twin-choke carburettors.

    Which was the best-selling XK120 model?
    A. OTS (open two-seater)
    Did you know the OTS model figure was 7614, although this was by far the longest running model and most went for export to America.

    A huge Thankyou goes out to Peter Simpson for this weeks questions - our Jaguar Trivia Guru

    I am happy to be able to announce that Nextbase are working with us again, and have just signed up with us for our 2020 event. I believe we are looking at an incredible prize for the Prize Draw on the day and possibly a discount for anyone who misses out on it on the day - a massive Thankyou to them for their support.

    Peter Simpson has been incredible, not only testing the trivia knowledge of all of us, but also educating us with incredible facts such as how many Jaguar leapers there have been, what seat frames can be made of, top speeds and so so much more - a genuine Jaguar Trivia Guru.

    I will be starting on the event paperwork in a couple of weeks to ensure all the info you need on the day is ready for you and in your Welcome packs, and am just about to start promoting our FREE trade and club/forum plots to bring up the number of companies and organisations you can meet on the day.

    I can also announce that we have our first Canadian Jaguar owners coming over for our event this year - please join me in making them feel very welcome.

    Our events aim is to connect Jagsters worldwide with the incredible support netweok available to them, so if you run a community service for Jaguar owners please drop a line to the.jagster@jaguarforumsuk.com and get yourself listed - also if you are a Jaguar specialist and are not currently working with us please get in touch as we would love to be able to connect you with our Jagsters - just drop a line to info@jaguarforumsUK.com.

    So much is going on with our event, no longer just in May So please, check in on us regularily right through the year

    Hi everyone - Yes, I know it isn't a Friday and it's not your idea of a Tuesday reading long posts - but so, so much is going on currently with our event a mid week update is needed

    Our event website is about to gain a Club/Forums Register page, where you can list your club or forum - just email the details to club.register@jaguarforumsuk.com and we will get you added in. We have a new member of the team looking after this - Neil Allen.. please join me in welcoming him to the team.. you can contact Neil directly at neil.allen@jaguarforumsuk.com. A massive Thankyou to him for this.

    Our infrastructure is coming along in leaps and bounds with the help of your registrations, and we have just ordered the flag for the start point of the convoy element to save people the usual issue of locating me In addition to this we have a banner for the roundabout exit to Denbies, and another banner for the Organisers tent/stand.. I am still working on sorting our tressle tables (our last one lasted seven years would you believe), directional signage, and our printing costs. We are a grassroots event, always have been so what we don't manage I will work around, but so far we have a massive improvement for everyone with the event.

    Our 2020 Gallery is doing really well, and is well worth viewing.. however we are still missing some Jags there.. if you have one of the following Access Pass numbers could you send an image in along with some descriptive text if at all possible as it would be great to have everyone listed there.. 002, 004, 009, 010, 017, 029, 034, 036, 041, 042, 045, 047, 049, 056, 065, & 066.. Massive thanks in advance

    For the first year ever we have the Jaguar Drivers Club involved which is incredible .. They have asked for a club plot and an allocated area - please join me in making them feel very welcome.

    On a lighter note, on looking at the list of attending Jaguars you may note that I have purposefully skipped 013 and 069 for obvious reasons

    A massive Thankyou to everyone - you have such a huge effect on what we can do for you by registering, supporting, sponsoring, and helping with our grassroots event
