The Jaguar Drivers’ Club, formed in 1956 is the only club to be officially recognised by Sir William Lyons (4 September 1901 – 8 February 1985) whom jointly founded The Swallow Sidecar Company in 1922 which became S S cars in 1934. The first S S Jaguar car was produced in 1935 and the company became Jaguar Cars ltd after the second world war.
The JDC as it is more commonly known, is a European wide organisation.
The JDC is divided into Areas and Bedfordsire is Area 17.
Here you will find a group of Jaguar enthusiasts who believe that their cars should be driven and enjoyed. This is a group who wish to share friendship with like minded people, and with an emphasis on social activities, wives and partners are especially welcome.
We welcome members with all types and ages of Jaguar.
We meet at 8pm on the second Monday of each month, at the Jolly Coopers pub in Flitton, a traditional English pub with a large car park, and a welcoming and supportive landlord.
The committee plans a full programme of activities or events for members to enjoy, frequently accompanied by a buffet, or a meal. Speakers and slideshow presentations on all sorts of subjects, from Jaguar cars, aircraft and we even had a talk on world war one uniforms.
A Ladies night is arranged every March featuring a subject to suit our lady members.
During the summer months, we encourage members to attend various car rallies and of course the Jaguar Drivers’ Club National Day. We also try to have an area day at a local event where we erect our marquee and display our members Jaguars. Bucks Fizz or soft drinks are supplied and members generally provide food for all to share.
All Jaguars, of any age, are welcome. We regularly see examples of XJs, XJS, Mark IIs, E Types, XKs and SS plus some of the more modern Jaguars.
Contact us through the web site, or just come along. We are waiting to meet you.
