2018 Host Club - Jaguar Drivers' Club:

**Those who have been asked to display their Zed, please use the Main Gate entrance off entrance & have your "entrance ticket" at the ready. The gate will be open at 7.00am, we're planning to be early, so we can go in and set up our space. (EXHIBITORS PLEASE BE THERE BEFORE 8AM!!) 8)


PLEASE NOTE, THERE IS TO BE NO VEHICLE MOVEMENT OF SHOW VEHICLES BETWEEN 9.30am - 4PM!!
Moving traffic inside other than "official" vehicles is strictly prohibited by OSH requirements. Any vehicles trying to depart prior to 4pm will be banned from future events & may be liable for any penalties imposed on the organisers.



The theme for 2018 is: "Women and the Marque" -

Enter the Classic Cover Insurance �Best Club Display� and you could win a great cash prize for your club.




If you thought the 2017 Concours show was great, 2018 will be fabulous! There will be a full weekend of Classic Car activities, culminating in the Intermarque Concours d 'Elegance on the Sunday.

* Sunday 11th February we return to Ellerslie for a whole day of events, including the 45th Intermarque Concours d'Elegance.

2018 will be the biggest classic car event ever with more clubs, more cars, more commercial exhibits and expect record crowds. 2017 had over 80 car clubs on display, 2018 promises to be more. So make the New Zealand Classic Car Weekend 2018 a priority event- as there are always some extra special cars there!




(Non-competitors please enter via the trailer gates once they are open).



Make sure those Zeds are extra clean, spick & span & shiny, and lets put on a great display. Remember this is our opportunity to promote our club, & find new club members & have a fun day!

We've selected a stunning array of Zeds for Sunday for our very limited allocated space. Hope you can visit to say hi, and of course check out the other club stands at the show. Always some amazing car to see.


We've had one of our old school Zeds unable to make it on Sunday now, so it if you have an absolutely stunning, exceptionally clean & tidy, very stock looking 240z, 260z, or 280z and can email me some current photos of the car today, please either, pm, text or phone me.

Cheers
Bronzee

Bring your umbrellas and coats and join us. :)

An extremely wet Concours d' Elegance on Sunday, so much so, that we renamed the event to Lake Concours, as we were standing in 3-5cms of water!!!! Eeek!

We started the day with the market umbrella upright, and quickly decided it was going to go airborne onto the McLaren's next to us, so smart Zedders put the umbrella on it's side with anchors. Watching other clubs around hanging on their tents trying to hold them down.

Despite the rubbish weather, we had 5 very special, stunning Zeds on display, each with their own history and we talked members of the public who'd had Zeds, want one or newbies or ones with long term projects.

Although we were starting to grow flippers, it was awesome to catch up with everyone & to check out the other clubs incredible cars, some extremely rare!


* A very big thank you to those that braved the rain, those that we up early to bring their gorgeous Zeds out into the weather & those that helped.

A big thanks from me. Unfortunately or fortunately I was unable to attend, as I am currently in Plaster with a torn Achilles. But it is great to hear that we still had enough cars present. A very big thanks for those that braved the day.
