Jaguars on prowl at village green

ABOUT 50 Jaguars will be on the prowl at Westbury on Saturday, with not a gamekeeper in sight.

These Jaguars are the classic British cars, with four wheels rather than four legs and they will gather on the town's Village Green for the annual state jaguar rally.

Jaguar Car Club of Tasmania senior vice-president Andrew Dalton, of Launceston, said that cars would be on the green from 9am to 3pm for judging and the public was urged to go along for a  look.

``Judging starts at 9.30am,'' he said.

``We're also going to have a sausage sizzle. Retired aircraft and car designer Jim Fruin, of George Town, will be there with some of his exquisitely restored small-capacity classic road racing motorcycles and there will be a few tractors parked around the street, courtesy of the Tractor Club of Westbury.''

Rally director Martin Wilson, of Westbury, said  on Sunday members would participate in a treasure hunt ``and all sorts of other activities''.

``It's quite appropriate to base Saturday's judging on the green because Westbury's is the last village green being used in Australia,'' he said.
