The International Jaguar XK Club and Prostate Cancer UK have come up with this amazing 18-day event. The tour which takes the XKs around the entire coast of Great Britain, covering 3,500 miles takes place on June 12-29th. Participants can choose to drive just one day or experience the whole trip.
The aim of the event is to raise awareness of the disease and raise funds for the charity.
The event organiser, Philip Porter, came up with the idea when, after recovering from prostate cancer himself, drove the coastal roads in his E-Type (famous for appearing in The Italian Job).
“I urge all XK owners to take part,” says Porter. “Not only will they be supporting a very important cause but, as I know from experience, the driving is absolutely superb. Our XKs were designed for driving and that, for many of us, is the real pleasure of ownership.
“So, if you like driving, this tour is for you.”
Mr Porter will be driving his XK120 which has no roof and small racing screens. Let’s hope for a sunny June!
