Social and Sporting Events:
We have a varied calendar of meetings and social and sporting events covering every month of the year.
Social events include barbecues, picnics, dinners and film evenings as well as simple Sunday drives and weekend trips. Also you have the chance to participate in the annual Jaguar National Rally which is held in a different state each year, usually held over the Easter long weekend.
The Club is affiliated with the Marque Sports Car Association and through this association members have the opportunity to participate in circuit sprints and driver training days at a racetrack. The Club hosts one round of the XJ Sprint Series at Mallala each year and there are other rounds held interstate. For those who prefer more gentle sports the Club offers economy runs, driving skills days and motorkhanas.
