Jaguar Spares Days Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire

Jaguar Spares Days Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire

Next weekend, 15 March between 10:00 and 15:00, the Jaguar Spares Days will take place again in Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire. Probably the most important date for all Jaguar screwdrivers among us who still urgently need Jaguar parts. The event takes place twice a year, once in spring and once in autumn. The autumn date, due to the upcoming winter and the associated workshop time, is the more important one. More than 200 stalls offer everything from the rarest LUCAS relays to complete vehicles, from the beginnings of Standard & Swallow time to the rims of a Jaguar F-Type.
Until now, due to the current virus situation, there is no cancellation of the event, at least nothing can be found on the website. I am glad that one or the other of you should tell us about his visit here. For more information: http://www.jaguarsparesdays.co.uk
Bib Stillwell's Jaguar D-Type and Duncan Hamilton's Jaguar XK 120

Bib Stillwell's Jaguar D-Type and Duncan Hamilton's Jaguar XK 120

The new year is just awakening from its hibernation, as the first big auctions begin and with it the chance to acquire history, provided you have the necessary "small money". For us Jaguar crazy, two dates next month are very interesting. On February 5th, in the heart of Paris, at the feet of Napoleon Bonaparte, Place Vauban, the first large vintage car auction of the auction house RM Sotheby's on the old continent rises. With the lot number 171 a Jaguar D-Type "Shortnose" with the chassis No. XKD520. After its completion in 1955, his path led him directly to the other side of the world to Australia to his first owner the racing driver Bib Stillwell. Not only did the car compete in well-known races for many years and achieved some victories, such as the Bathurst Road Racing Championship in 1956.
The second event will take place on 22 and 23 February at Stoneleigh Park, Kenilworth near Coventry, the first Silverstone auction this year at Race Retro 2020. Under the hammer, the legendary Jaguar XK120 OTS lands in its distinctive green with the chassis No. 660332, with whom Duncan Hamilton competed in his first races in a Jaguar, at the end of which in 1953 the overall victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans stands. We'll see how the two famous Jaguars beat each other and whether they get a new home. I'll stick to it and report again at the end of next month.
Also this year, the Retro Classics 2014 took place at the exhibition grounds in Stuttgart from 13 to 16 March. In the meantime it is the 14th meeting and if one compares the number of visitors with the last year, it must be said that the perceived onslaught was much more enormous. Many well-known exhibitors from the last years were present again, such as the company Mirbach from beautiful Bavaria or "The Gallery" from the Netherlands and of course Döni Classic Cars from Switzerland.
I was surprised by the growing number of exhibitors and suppliers from Eastern European countries. I think we will have to expect even more from these parts of Europe in the future. But now I don't want to let you wait any longer, here some impressions ...
