Members receive a years supply of the Club's magazine
the Driving Member:
ten 32-page issues plus one double issue at Christmas.
The magazine takes its name from the drive of the fluid flywheel.
It contains news, views, technical articles and reports on social events.
Members can advertise cars or parts in the small advertisement section.
As well as the magazine, the club reproduces a number of driver's handbooks,
workshop manuals and parts catalogues (where they were produced).
In many cases this is the only source of these items.
Some commercial publications on the club marques are also available.
A recent addition to the range is a compendium of all the articles
in the Driving Member concerning the SP250 sports car.
The club is run on the basis of volunteer model registrars and branch secretaries, who are available to help members in difficulty with advice on car related matters. Whatever your problems, no doubt someone in the club will have had it. Some registrars run Technical Days for specific models, usually at JDHT.
Advertisements from traders and members in the Driving Member, and our model registrars can help you in sourcing those elusive parts needed to finish your restoration or keep your car on the road.
The main Club event of the year is the annual International Rally usually held on the 2nd Sunday in June. The location of the rally moves around in the UK, and we even have held one in The Netherlands, which won the Classic And Sportscar Award for the best club event of 2002. Branch secretaries organise monthly get togethers around the country. Active members organise stands at local and national level shows where cars can be shown and other members can be met. The Club also has a Touring Club, which arranges multi-day car tours both at home and in mainland Europe. Our aim is to be a car club with a smile on its face.
Free advertising is available to members in the Driving Member.
The club archive is housed at the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust in Coventry. Along with the Trust's archive, this is available to members by appointment.
Several Club insurance schemes give members a discount not only on their classic car but also on their normal car.
The club may be able to help members retain the original registration number of their car.
All this for an annual fee of £ 36.- if paid by Direct Debit or £ 37.- for any other payment methods and for members outside the UK. A family membership is also available.
