As part of PC-UK's 10 year anniversay we had been invited to attend the Jersey International Motoring Festival in St.Helier on the dates of the 4th June - 7th June 2015.

 After much work by our Chairman Geoff Taylor and Tim Smith the arrangements were put in place and 13 car owners came forward to represent the club at the show.

The following is a simple diary of the trip in words and pictures.  Hope you like them?

DAY 2

Up bright an early as we had a busy itinary in front of us.

First up a visit to The States of Jersey Police HQ by invitation of the Chief Officer Mike Bowron QPM.

Permission was given to drive our vehicles fully marked up from the hotel to the HQ by Mr Bowron where we recieved a very warm welcome and a lot of interest from the staff.

The HQ is part of the Rouge Bouillon Police Station complex in St.Helier

We would also like to thank PC-UK member Chris Ingham, who is a serving States of Jersey Police Officer, for all his hard work in helping to arrange things during our stay.

PEOPLES PARK ST.HELIER

Ever onward our next appointment was only a short drive away at the Peoples Park which was next to our hotel to  we met up with the Honorary Parish Constables of Jersey and their vehicles........

This event had been arranged as a surprise as this was one of the few times in recent history that all the Honorary Parish Constables and a selection of their vehicles had been collected together for a photo opportunity.  It was an honour and a privilige to be be part of this event and to meet these elected Ladies and Gentlemen.

Quite an eclectic mix of motors as you will see, some more surprising than others.

Hondas faired well in the Parish Constables selection accounting for a third of the vehicles on show

Any help in establishing this information will be appreciated.

As a foot note to this an interesting fact. States of Jersey Police do not have the power to charge or prosecute offenders on the Island. That is the sole privilege of the elected Honorary Parish Constables.

 

.........................................................................................................................................

 

Well that was the morning of day 2 sorted and it was at this point the group split up to go and indulge in some other activities.

A small group including yours truely decided to go and see the underground tunnels of the WWII German Hospital and I have added a few photos of or visit.

After a spot of tea and a lovely slice of cake we returned to the hotel for a break.

 

...............................................................................................................................................

 

There was some time till our next official engagement later on in the evening so Steve Woodward and I decided to walk back to the Police HQ and get some more photo's of things we may have missed earlier.  On our way back to the hotel we found the Jersey States Ambulance station so decided to enquire if we could get some shots of their vehicles.  We were made most welcome by the Station Manager and ended up having a nice cup a tea and a chin wag with him and some of his staff.

Here are some of the Photographs we took.

Getting near to the end of an excellent day and what a way to cap it off with a drive down the Espanlade on the seafront in St.Heliers

The Espanlade is closed off for the evening to allow for some street racing but is proceeded by a cavalcade of cars for the benefit of the public.

So with all the vehicles uncovered and with lights flashing and two tones, and bells of course, blaring away the convoy left the hotel to join the parade.

PCUKCavalcade1

First out of the blocks was Tim Smith and his Ford Granada Concept

PCUKCavalcade2

Followed on by Phil Jacobs and his Hants Volvo 240PS

PCUKCavalcade13

Last out but always leading from the front Geoff Taylor and his personal "Job" motor the GMP Range Rover V8

 

Apologies to Chris Taylor and Paul Ridley but due to some dodgy David Bailey work their motors came out a little to blurry to download.  Must have been the speed at which they came barrelling out of the yard. Sorry guys but I have  loads more photo's of your cars to put in later.

 

As the lads and lasses headed down to the start line in the glourious evening sunshine I took a stroll down along the Espanlade to get some photo's of the cars serenely displaying their fine looks to the enthusiastic crowds gathered for the cavalcade.

The organisers only allowed one run up and down the Espanlade so after a very busy day it was back to the Hotel for some liquid refreshment.

On behalf of the club, and all those who attented this event, I would like to thank the excellent hotel staff for their great service and assistance especially in regards to the parking and safety of the cars within the hotel grounds.  Throughout our stay we had reserved parking spaces for which we were very grateful.

Here are the cars being put to bed for the night after a long and exciting day for them.

PCUKRTNStation1

PCUKRTNStation6

The "Big Cat" doesn't quite fit into the marked out bay.

PCUKRTNStation7

Just a little bit more and the Pompey City Riley will be safe and sound.

PCUKRTNStation8

That looks like it's going to be a tight squeeze for Anton's Met Police replica Wolseley 6-80

PCUKRTNStation9

If the cars get any bigger they'll never get through the gap.

PCUKRTNStation10

Room for a little one?

PCUKRTNStation11

Notice the helpful crowd gathering to watch the V8 squeeze into the last bay!

 

After a quick cuppa I headed back up to the Espanlade to watch and the evenings racing entertainment "The Moonlight Sprint"which was a timed run along Victoria Avenue.  This event started at 2000hrs and finished at 2330hrs.

There were all sorts of catagories but here is a small selection of the motors giving it a go.

The crowds start to arrive and already the cars are drawing attention

JIMFTwizy

Before I go onto show you the pictures from the PC-UK stand I thought I'd show you this single seat Renault Twizy which was on display near us.  What with the advent of single manning in many forces and the need to save costs could this be a contender as a beat car.  Bit of battenburg and a blue light, could be fun.

PCUKShowGound7

This is Anton Prole's Metropolitan Police replica Wolseley 6/80 resplendent in the sunshine.  This lovely car I have discovered has a secret ingredient that keeps it running sweetly and finally I have the evidence of what this ingredient is.  No wonder it's a guzzler.

PCUKShowGound26

So here's the proof that Anton's car runs on more than just benzin.  So what is the special addetive?

PCUKShowGound27

Sales of "Blossom Hill" White Zinfandel have just increased on the discovery that cars love it.

PCUKShowGound6

This ex Metropolitan Police Jaguar S Type is one of several cars owned by Ernie Jupp.  This particular car has had the pleasure of conveying the "Kray Twins" in it's back seats.

PCUKShowGound5

Ernie's car is currently crewed by this very smartly dressed couple.   I'm going to go "No Comment" on this one.

PCUKShowGound3

So here we have the "Ford Squad" posing with their newly aquired very colourful Ford baseball caps.  Right rough looking bunch aren't they!

From left to right Tim Smith (Granada Concept), Steve Woodward (MkI Granada) and David Malone (MkII Granada).

PCUKShowGound10

First up is Tim's Wiltshire Constabulary Ford Granada Concept also known as TB2

PCUKShowGound13

Next up Steve's newly refurbished Avon & Somerset Ford Granada MkI

PCUKShowGound29

Last of the Ford Squad cars is David's Hertfordshire Constabulary Ford Granada MkII

I had the pleasure in being David's operator for the drive to and from this event and just want to thank him for ride and the company.  Cheers mate.

Now a little bet was had between Steve and David and the end result was David won.

PCUKShowGound20

The Vodafone girls did come and pose with David's car.

The always much admired Wiltshire Costabulary Driving School Jaguar XJ6 owned by Adrian Cottle

PCUKShowGound14

This GMP Range Rover V8 is unusual in that it is owned by our Chairman Geoff Taylor who also drove it in anger whilst it was in service.

 

Also taking place on the saturday was the first day of the Hill Climb competition.  This was taking place on Westmount Road which ran up behind the Peoples Park.

All the participants had to have pre 1980's Motorbikes or Cars.  Took a couple of shots of the bikes and cars just for your interest.

JIMFHillClimb5

Nice Lotus Elan on the start line of the Westmount section of the JIMF Hill Climb.

A very important event had been arranged for the saturday afternoon at the hotel which meant that we would have to de-camp from the show site at 1600hrs. After a very successful and enjoyable day this is indeed what we did.

However before the event was due to take place I quickly headed down to the sea front as I had been told that there was some beach racing going on.  Just a couple of shots to give you a flavour of what was going on as I did not want to be late for the special event at the hotel.

BeachRace5

Contestants unloading their steed's for the beach racing.

BeachRace2

The Green Ninja preped and ready for action

BeachRace3

Spoke to the owner of this sand racer and he tells me it is powered by a Suzuki Hayabusa 1000cc motorcycle engine.  Power to weight this must be fun to blast around the beach in.

BeachRace6

Close up of the Suzuki Hayabusa engine in the back of the Beach Buggy. Neat bit of engineering.

BeachRace4

Now that's a playground I could have fun on.

BeachRace1

Sand buggies heading back to the "Sand Pits" after one of the races.

 

Back at the hotel the staff were busy preparing for the afternoon event I mentioned.  A special Tea Party on the terrace of the hotel to celebrate Phil Lawrence and Alf Pufer who unfortunately both passed away last year.  Everyone that had come to Jersey was there to pay respects to them both and to enjoy a wonderful High Tea and to reminisce in the glourious sunshine.

PCUKTeaParty4

May I introduce Mr Tim Smith who was to be our host and waiter for this special event. Tim had been a close friend of Phil Lawrence and was a prime mover in arranging this tribute to him and Alf Pufer. 

PCUKTeaParty1

Meet the whole crew of PC-UK Team who attended this special tea and the wonderful Jersey International Motoring Festival.

Note the special guest at the head of table.  A wonderful picture of Phil resplendent in full uniform.

PCUKTeaParty2

Just to make sure everyone got in the shot a view from Tim's end of the table.

PCUKTeaParty3

Just to give you a small taster of what was on offer for the tea here we have a delightful tray of small posh fancy cakes.  These were proceeded by sandwiches and some very yummy scones with jam and cream which I didn't photograph as they left the plate quicker than I could draw my camera from it's holster.

This was a fitting end to a very successful and wonderful day and something that I think everyone present will remember for a long time.

...........................................................................................................................................................

DAY 4

Well here we are the final day of our excellent trip to Jersey.  We still had time in the morning before our afternoon ferry home to soak up the atmosphere of this fantastic event so after a hearty breakfast it was out into the sunshine to watch the mornings goings on. 

Some of the members had been woken in the early hours of the morning by the sounds of trucks and workmen unloading large sandbags which were being used to block off the road at the side of the hotel.  This turned out to be the mornings entertainment as they had set up a short race track around the green for cars to give demonstrations on.

Take a gander at a few of the motors having a blat around the track.

JIMFStreetRace9

First out in the sun a gaggle of karts.

 As they say all good things must come to an end and it was a real shame that this superb experience had unfortunately come to that end.  So it was with great sorrow that we left the hotel and headed for the port to catch the ferry.
