“The sun shone on all the highly polished cars, mostly Jaguars but any make of car was welcomed. There was almost every type of Jaguar, from SS100 and E type to the new F type sports and the latest F pace SUV.”

They had around 150 cars on the day. The Best in Show award was won by Peter Cremer, with his Alfa Romeo Guilietta Spyder. Also attending the show was the Best in Show winner from the Stamford Car Show held the previous weekend, a Jaguar E type V12 owned by Chris himself.

There were numerous trade stands and children’s entertainment, including model boats on the lake and a Spitfire fly past in the afternoon.

Entry was by donation to the Lincs and Notts air ambulance and the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club will be rounding up the money collected to £1,000.
