For those of you who are new to Xclusively Jaguar, I (Letitia Mace) developed Xclusively Jaguar in 2008 as a reliable base for collecting and sharing correct Jaguar data.
I sent out my first newsletter on 11th August 2008 and signed up for a web-design course and built the first website myself, completing it before the end of 2008.
Subsequent websites have been professionally developed, as these have become more complex and sophisticated, however, I have always been entirely responsible for all content and layout.
In 2014, Rob Jenner became my partner and we now share an interesting collection of Jaguar cars and automobilia. Together, we get involved in anything that relates to Jaguar cars, reports of which often appear in Xclusively Jaguar News and the general Motoring Media.
Chosen patrons of Xclusively Jaguar are those who are highly esteemed for their connection with Jaguar. Former patrons include Norman Dewis OBE and Professor James Randle, former Jaguar Director of Engineering, now both sadly passed away.
