ACJC Australian Council of Jaguar Clubs

The Australian Council of Jaguar Clubs (ACJC) was formed in 1984-85. It is a federation of the eight Jaguar Clubs in Australia that cater to the whole range of models in the Jaguar marque. The primary objectives of the ACJC are:

  1. To be responsible for the rules and broad-scale management aspects of the Annual Jaguar National Rally and the related Post Rally Tour.
  2. To act as the focal point for the relationship between the affiliated Australian Clubs and Jaguar Land Rover Australia (JLRA), thus providing a communication channel for matters of interest to all the affiliated Australian Clubs and to discuss and understand JLRA’s position in regard to Dealer relations, Jaguar logos, trademarks and associated intellectual property, etc.
  3. To provide a forum for the affiliated Australian Clubs to share ideas and information on significant common issues such as Constitutions, the National Rally, legal status, membership fees, Club structures, Club activities, etc.
  4. To promote camaraderie between Jaguar enthusiasts.

Classic Car Classic Automobile A classic vehicle is one that is eligible to be registered under the NSW Historic Vehicle Concessional Registration scheme.

Some insurance companies, however, consider cars 20 years or older as “classic” cars, offering special insurance rates.

The CMC represents affiliated clubs and their members with authorities such as the Roads and Traffic Authority, NSW (RTA) with reference to Conditional Historic Registration and the Federal Government on matters relating to the Classic Car movement.

The 50-strong group of friends decided an organisation was vitally needed to protect motorist’s requirements and offer roadside assistance and guidance.
