Southern Jowett Car Club
It was announced at the annual general meeting of the Southern Jowett Car Club that M. Marcel Becquart had consented to become the Club’s President. In accepting the Presidency, Marcel Becquart said it was a great honour to be asked to become President of one of the oldest Car Clubs in Great Britain and hoped that in view of the Javelin and Jupiter popularity, and the successes both models had achieved, the membership of the Club would greatly increase.
The S.J.C.C. feels that it now has an organisation sufficient to deal with the majority of the interests of Jowett owners and intends, if support is forthcoming, to enter teams in national and international events as well as hold its fixtures for the less ambitious Jowett owners.
