Jaguars at Gaydon is a friendly and informal gathering for all Jaguar fans not restricted to members of any specific Jaguar club as all are welcomed. Now in its fourth year, the show is a joint collaboration between the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust (JDHT) and the British Motor Museum. The event begins at 10am.

This year’s event focuses on three key anniversaries:

  • 100 years of Le Mans
  • the rescheduled 30 years of XJ220 birthday bash
  • 50 years of Jaguar XJC

Visitors will see the 1988 Le Mans-winning XJR9 up close and it will be joined by two other cars in the JDHT’s collection with Le Mans history – the 1954 prototype D-Type and the 1956 long-nose D-Type.

We have invited XJ220 owners and team members who worked on the design and development of the car, so visitors can learn more about this important chapter in Jaguar’s history. A lineup of Jaguar XJC will celebrate 50 years since the launch of this stylish coupe, topped off with the very last example produced which is in the JDHT’s collection. Visitors can see more JDHT exhibits in the Collections Centre and the dedicated Jaguar Zone inside the main museum building.

New for 2023; we will also be hosting the Jaguar Drivers’ Club Champion of Champions concours competition giving visitors the chance to experience a concours competition up close. Judging will be conducted in the morning with the winner being announced in the afternoon.
